Second division - day 8

And so it goes on. Sunday lunchtime: Recreativo 0 - Alavés 0, Sunday evening: Xerez 0 - Tenerife 0; Terrassa 0 - Ciudad de Murcia 0; Poli Ejido 0 - Eibar 0; Salamanca 1 - Málaga B 1. But at least there were three victories on the day, with Numancia beating Rayo Vallecano by an incredible 2-5 and Cádiz winning 0-1 at neighbours Algeciras to take both of the victors level with Levante in the top three spots, and Toro Acuña giving Elche a 1-0 win over Leganés.

Levante held on to their place at the top of the table after coming from behind to beat Sporting Gijon 2-1. They are now two points above Almería, who kept up their unbeaten record with a 1-1 draw at Las Palmas. And as is becoming the custom in the second division, Córdoba and Getafe also drew, this time 0-0, in the third game on Saturday evening. (18.10.03)
