The 1-0 result is also worth it for Almería as a result of their better ranking
The Rojiblancos would need to win by two goals difference if Girona scored at Mediterraneo
The qualification for the final of the play-off competition that Almería are playing against Girona will be decided on Sunday at Juegos Mediterráneos when both teams meet in the second leg of the semi-finals. Today’s 1-0 result of the first leg is minor, but at the same time dangerous because if Girona manage to score in Almeria, they will complicate things more for the Rojiblancos.
In fact, in such event, Almería will need to win by two goals because of the double value of the goals away. In any case, the 1-0 score at Montilivi is also valid for the Indalicos because of their better ranking in the regular phase of LaLiga SmartBank. The Almeria team finished fourth in the table, and Girona, fifth.
The possible 1-0 result at the end of the meeting would lead to extra-time, and if the score was maintained there would be no penalty shoot-out, but Almería would qualify for the final of the play-off due to the aforementioned information.
