Real Murcia CF have all but secured their promotion play-off place in the Liga Adelante after beating CD Tenerife 0-1 with a solitary goal from Kike García. With this result Tenerife are no longer in contention for promotion to the Liga BBVA.

The fans were still finding their seats at the Heliodoro Rodríguez López Stadium when Murcia’s top scorer, Kike García, opened the scoring with less than a minute on the clock. The goal, surprisingly, brought Tenerife to life, seeking the equaliser in every way possible but unable to break through a well organised visiting defence. Just before half time, striker Dominique Malonga had a chance to seal the match, but his shot was narrowly deflected.

The dynamics of the game did not change in the second half and Tenerife, whose need was greater, were the ones chasing the game. Forwards Aridane and Édgar Méndez had chances, but none of their attempts troubled the visiting defence, who managed to hang on to come away with the three points. A draw on the final matchday will be enough for Murcia to confirm their play-off spot for promotion to the Liga BBVA.
