UD Lanzarote 0 UD Cruz Santa 0

Lanzarote have now qualified for the playoffs for Segunda B (League 1) for the second year running but failing to win against the league´s second from bottom club will not be how they would have liked to celebrate.

Sundays-line-up UD Lanzarote

The Rojillos were desperate for all three points as league leaders Santa Brígida and second placed side Las Palmas B had already played the evening before. The in form Santa Brígida cruised to a 3-0 home win against 14th placed side Unión Viera whilst Las Palmas B dropped two points in a goalless draw against 15th placed CF Arucas.

All this means that Lanzarote´s chances of finishing top and qualifying for the Copa Del Rey (F.A. Cup) next season have been dealt an almighty blow. UD Villa Santa Brígida are now four points clear of the Rojillos with just 3 games remaining.

Las Palmas B remain one point ahead of Lanzarote and finishing second does give you a so called advantage of playing one of the weaker teams in the playoffs with the away Leg first.

The game itself was pretty much how this report is written, disappointing! Some described this game as the worst performance of the season but in true honesty those people are just disappointed. The Rojillos completely dominated the match with two good penalty shouts turned down and a super Miguel Gómez strike flying off the woodwork. It was one of those games that just was not going our way.  read more »

Why Hiring A Car For Day Or Two Is Expensive In Lanzarote

Let’s be clear about this - car hire in Lanzarote is pretty inexpensive, so we’re talking in relative terms here.

Car hire

But I know many people visit the island and use a transfer service or a taxi to get to and from their accommodation, with the plan that they will hire a car for a few days in order to enjoy exploring the island.

That can be expensive for two reasons:

1/ We have a limited number of cars on the island, and the budget priced cars tend to be booked well in advance. So whilst you can pick up a car from one of the hire places in resort, the chances are quite high that all they will have available are the more expensive premium cars - the ones you see parked up with leaflets on them.  read more »
