San Salvador, Jan 26 (EFE).- Mexican forward Yair Delgadillo, who plays for Municipal Limeño, will try this weekend to extend his scoring streak in the Salvadoran League and keep his team in first place.
The Mexican, who has played in the second division of Mexico and the first of Guatemala, has 4 goals in three games and on the fourth date of the Clausura tournament he will have the opportunity to score more goals against the current champion, Águila.
The Municipal Limeño Cucheros arrive at this fourth day in first place with a perfect pace, while those led by the Argentine Ernesto ‘Carucha’ Corti are ninth with two points.
Behind Delgadillo in the scoring table are Colombian Manuel Chalá and Salvadorans Jairo Martínez, Styven Vasquez, Javier Ferman and Jose Posada with two goals.
In second position in the table is Futbolistas Asociados Santanecos (FAS) with 7 points and seeks to reach the top against Santa Tecla, which does not add any points and is the main candidate for relegation.
Luis Ángel Firpo’s Toros are third with 6 points and will face Alianza, which is eighth with 4 points and one of the main animators of Salvadoran football.
The Dragon will visit the Platense fiefdom. These teams are in fourth and fifth place with 6 units each.
Los Gallos del Platense have a 7-point advantage over Santa Tecla in the accumulated table, which adds the points from Clausura 2023 and Apertura 2024 to determine the team that is relegated at the end of the season.
Jocoro, current runner-up and last in the Apertura table without points, will seek their first victory against Fuerte San Francisco, which is tenth with a single point.
Isidro Metapán and 11 Deportivo will measure their strength to get closer to the first places; these clubs are currently the owners of sixth and seventh place with 5 and 4 points, respectively.
After 22 dates of the regular stage, the teams that finish in the first 8 positions will advance to the quarterfinals to be eliminated in a double game until reaching the final, which is played in a single match.
