From today the ball is rolling


After delaying the first whistle for several weeks, finally on the 170th. The Liga Nacional de Fútbol kicked off with the first of seven competitive days of the Apertura Tournament.

This time around, the league tournament began with a series of matches originally scheduled for calendar date 4, which had to be rescheduled due to logistical issues preventing the event, originally scheduled for February 11, from kicking off.

This time, the Opening will be shorter, as only one round of matches will be played for each of the teams, divided into two groups.

Key A, made up of schools in the westernmost half, consists of Pinar del Rio, Havana, Mayabeque, Artemis, Isla de la Juventud, Matanzas, Cienfuegos and Villa Clara. Meanwhile, the East-Central B is made up of Sancti Spiritus, Camaguey, Holguin, Ciego de Avila, Las Tunas, Granma, Guantanamo and Santiago de Cuba. In the match for the title, the squads leading each section will meet.

Without a doubt, the great contenders in the struggle for victory are Diablos Rojos from the hot land, who not only became the absolute monarchs of the island, being crowned at the opening and closing of the 106th edition, but also by that time became the super champions of the country. defeat Artemis.

The Indomitable will have great rivals on their way to repeating their primacy. Firstly, in their own territory they will have to overcome difficult obstacles, such as the Titans of Guantanamo, a very strong squad, which now, under the command of the Italian Lorenzo Mambrini, can make a leap in the level. There they will also have to take care of Las Tunas and Camaguey, two of those who looked their best last season.

From the west, gladiators from Artemis seem to be the main threats, as well as lions from the capital, although both Vueltabajeros and Cienfuegos can also rise to the next level.

On the second date of the tournament, scheduled for March 1 at regular time, the West will be fought between VCL-IJV, MTZ-MAY, ART-CFG and LHA-PRI, while CAV-SSP, SCU-HOL, GTM-GRA and LTU-CMG is always at the first house.
