Matchday 03 was clearly dominated by the home teams with the locals winning 7 of the 11 games disputed during the weekend. Only two teams have won everything so far, one of them is recently promoted Fuenlabrada CF, side that defeated Real Oviedo with a late goal from Anderson (2-1). It’s the first time in almost 60 years that a debutant in the league have won the first three games.

Rayo Vallecano is another team that remain undefeated, after starting the league with two draws they now beat Deportivo (3-1); it’s the same scenario of Sporting Gijón, side that started the tournament with two draws and that now achieved the first win hosting Albacete Balompié (2-0).

CD Numancia defeated CD Mirandés (2-0) and therefore all the teams in the league have already added points. Six teams remain without wins, one of them is CD Mirandés and the others are UD Las Palmas, Racing Club, Real Oviedo, Extremadura UD and CD Lugo.

Precisely, UD Las Palmas and Racing Club collided this weekend and the result was 2-2, with Rubén Castro scoring for the Canarians at minute 89 and with the Cantabrians tying the match in the added time. Meanwhile, CD Lugo was surprised at home by AD Alcorcón (2-4).
