CD Migjorn join Mercadal at the top of the Regional Preferente Menorca league table at Christmas after winning their game in hand.

The Verdiblanco were 2-0 winners against CCE Sant Lluis in a re-arranged game at the weekend, originally postponed a fortnight ago due to a positive coronavirus case in the Sant Lluis camp.

The win was their sixth out of six, meaning they keep the pace with the reigning champions with a 100% record at the top of the table.

Juanfran opened the scoring, although the opponents claimed an offside, before a Bolopo own goal secured the points.

With an automatic promotion place up for grabs, as well as the opportunity for the runner-up to take part in a promotion play-off, Migjorn are proving to be a surprise early challenger.

In third are Alaior, who remain unbeaten, with five wins and a draw.

The local press are already writing off UD Mahon’s chances of promotion – following their back-to-back defeats to Mercadal, which leaves them 11 points off the pace.

There are still 16 rounds of games to play in the New Year.
