Thank you Dr.Víctor Luaña and Dr  Karel Vyborny

My problem is that I found two results that give different electronic
behavior

Depending on Dr. Fabien Tran response, HF overestimate the gap.
And I think GW, GGA+U and mBJ potential are better adapt to estimate the
gap and I think their results for the studied material indicates that it is
semimetal pending confirmation.
