Segunda B Promotional Playoffs Draw To Be Held On Thursday
Four weeks have passed since Bilbao Athletic returned to training at Lezama and the Kumeak are eagerly looking forward to competing in next month’s promotional playoffs. Joseba Etxeberria’s side will need to win just three games to move up to the Segunda, which is no easy task, and will finally learn who their first opponent will be in just a few days.
The drawing will take place on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. with Atlético Madrid, Sabadell, and Badajoz the three possible opponents for Bilbao Athletic. Venues for the tournament have yet to be decided but the first round of the promotional playoffs will take place on 18 and 19 July.
Bilbao Athletic have been one of the most impressive teams in all of the Segunda B this season. Joseba Etxeberria’s side have scored more goals than anyone else, quite a feat given the fact that they’ve played most the campaign without healthy strikers, and the defense has taken strides as well. The promotional playoffs will be difficult, but Bilbao Athletic have the quality to earn their place in the Segunda next season.
