ATB beats Atlético Levante and guarantees place in promotion battle
Atlético Baleares beat Atlético Levante (1-2) on the 34th match day of the Second B championship, a match marked by a huge rainstorm and strong winds. The first half was dominated by the Blue and Whites, although the match got a bit more complicated when the ATB midfielder Pedro Ortiz was sent off with just twenty minutes to go. The team’s great skills confirmed the win, though.
ATB coach Manix Mandiola said at the end of the match, “Even if we lose all four games, those behind us will have to fight hard. Everything’s in our favour, but we must keep playing well”.
The next match will be on 28 April 2019 against Valencia-Mestalla, at the Son Malferit stadium (12.00 noon). If ATB wins this match and the other results are favourable, then the team could on paper be the champion of Group III.
