Deportivo Coatepeque, after a season full of difficulties and challenges, experienced an unfortunate turn in its career when it was relegated to the silver category of Guatemalan soccer. This Saturday, the team’s fate was sealed with Xinabajul’s recent victory over Guastatoya, a result that left Coatepeque in the position of first relegated in the National League.

Although there were still mathematical possibilities of salvation, these hopes were completely dashed with the aforementioned result. During this season, Deportivo Coatepeque faced numerous obstacles that hindered its performance in the league. Roster issues, fluctuations in team composition and even non-payment situations were some of the challenges the Snakes faced. These adverse circumstances contributed significantly to the difficult situation that ultimately culminated in the team’s relegation.

Now, with the relegation confirmed, attention is focused on determining the second team that will accompany Coatepeque in its relegation to the First Division. This fate is played between Zacapa, Xinabajul and Xelajú, with the “X” being the club best positioned to avoid relegation, thanks to its recent victory that gave it three vital points and moved it away from the danger zone. In contrast, Zacapa is in a more compromised situation, especially after the defeat that Cobán Imperial gave them with a goal in injury time scored by Thales Moreira.

In this way, the national league championship will continue to offer emotions and challenges this Sunday, precisely with the Coatepec team facing Deportivo Mixco. Let us remember that, if they win, the Chicharronero team would regain second place in the standings, which they lost at the hands of the princes charming after their seventh victory in the championship against the roosters.
