With no objective to fight for in the classification, once the descent to Third Division was completed last weekend, the Cultural de Durango must look for challenges to overcome in these two days remaining for the conclusion of the regular phase. Beyond the respect for competition and the very competitive character of Tabira's, Igor Núñez's still have walls to knock down and thatis can serve as an incentive in your next commitments. This weekend, without going any further, The Blue and Whites will fight to prevail in their first Vizcaya derby away from home. In front they will have a Gernika that will not make it easy since life is played in this clash, with the extra motivation that can overcome for those of Urbieta.
It was precisely in the regional feud where the Cultural played the first of the neighborhood duels of the season, in the elimination of Copa del Rey that faced the Gernika and in which the forals won by the minimum mercy to a goal in the last minute of Gorka Larruzea, thus avoiding an extension that seemed to be sung. In La Liga, things have not gone much better to the Cultural of Durango in the disputed derbies as a visitor. Two draws and three defeats is the baggage for Igor Núñez in this type of clashes.
Especially positive was the equalized harvested in Lezama against Bilbao Athletic, in day 13, a duel in which the duranguesado came to go sending the score by 0-2 to beyond 70 minutes thanks to the goals of Ekain and Ekaitz. From there, the push and quality of the rojiblancos, and some luck, led to the match will end with 2-2 and goalkeeper Villalibre after the expulsion of Oleaga in the last bars. In Sarriena, the Blue and Whites were also able to scratch a point, although this time the derby against Jon Ander Lambea ended goalless.
In the other three confrontations against rivals from the historic territory, Igor Núñez's players ended up kneeing. In Gobela, back in September, still on the fourth day, Arenas de Jabi Luaces won 2-0 to the Blue and Whites. With the second round well entered, on day 27, the 'Cultu' played in Lasesarre against an effective Barakaldo that prevailed by a brief 1-0 in a derby in which the equipment deserved greater prize. The 'good news' is that, After this clash, the Cultural managed to chain its best phase of the season, in which it achieved four victories in five confrontations to fan the hope of being able to fight for permanence. Some illusions that began to deflate little by little, and that found the final nail in Urritxe. Before the Amorebieta of Iñigo Vélez, one of the best teams of this second round, the Cultural de Durango fell thrashed by 3-0, a result to which little could be objected. The Blues were superior and, in addition, they had that scoring success that the Blue and Whites have lacked throughout a good part of the course.
Far from Tabira, and leaving aside the local duels, the Cultural has only been able to achieve victory on three occasions. The first one was made to wait until the 15th day, in which the vizcaínos defeated in the Malecón to the Gymnastics of Torrelavega by 1-2. Same result to the harvested in Mareo against Sporting B, already in the 29th league date. Two later, on the 31st, Igor Núñez's men achieved a important victory in Stadium Gal over Real Unión (0-2). This Sunday in Urbieta, they will look for the fourth to be able to finish the League with the highest possible points.
