CD Numancia and RC Deportivo de La Coruña will meet on Liga Adelante matchday 40 in the Nuevo Estadio de Los Pajaritos on Sunday at 20:00.
The Rojillos are looking to guarantee themselves another season of Liga Adelante football. To do so they will be trying to put ground between themselves and the chasing pack and increase their four-point advantage over a Real Madrid Castilla who mark the edge of the relegation zone. Midfielders Antonio Tomás and David González will miss the game; the former is injured, while the latter is serving a suspension. Javier Del Pino, who has been unavailable since early January, will also be absent.
The Galician side will travel to Soria intent on sealing their promotion to the Liga BBVA. To do so they have to win and hope that UD Las Palmas do not, or get a point and rely on a loss for the Canary Island side in their match against RC Recreativo de Huelva. Their manager, Fernando Vázquez, will have to make do without Diogo Salomão and Antonio Núñez, both of whom are injured.
