Second division, day 12
An injury time goal by Congo gave Levante a 2-2 draw against third placed Albacete to keep them top of the table. Zaragoza move up to second though after winning 1-0 against hitherto undefeated Terrassa, and after eight games without being beaten they must be firm favourites to return to the top flight. Xerez lost 2-1 at Racing Ferrol and drop out of the promotion spots, and Salamanca recorded their first home win since last April after beating Las Palmas. A controversial penalty gave bottom club Leganés a 0-1 win at Murcia, leaving the two Asturian clubs Oviedo and Sporting Gijon down in the last two places. (24.11.02)
Elche kept up their eight month undefeated away record, beating Compostela 0-1. Serrano hit the bar for the visitors in the first minute and Corredoira almost squeezed a shot past Toni for the home side on the stroke of half time, but otherwise there was little action until twenty minutes from the end when Compostela captain Pinillos was sent off for a second bookable offence. Meca beat keeper Tito from the resulting free kick for the winning goal, their first victory in six games. The Gallicians stay in the bottom spots, and with the club still not having settled back debts with their players they could be in for a turbulent week.
Almería came from behind to beat Eibar 2-1 and move, for 24 hours at least, out of the relegation spots. After a dull first half, the visitors took the lead when Miguel beat Barbero following a corner. However a quarter of an hour later Juanlu equalised from close range, and three minutes from the end Bilic scored the winner. It was a turn of fortune for the home side, who had thrown away several games in the final minutes. (23.11.02)
