Second division, day 4
Levante moved a point clear at the top of the table after a 0-0 draw at Real Murcia in the last game of the weekend, and with only four games gone they are the only unbeaten side in the second division. Seven teams are tied for fourth place behind Ciudad and Tenerife, including Lleida, who also drew 0-0 at Racing Ferrol, Recreativo, who beat Valladolid 2-0 earlier in the day, and Numancia and Xerez, who cancelled each other out in a 1-1 draw.
After the last three weeks of high scoring things are back to normal, with only sixteen goals in the eleven games. Only four sides managed more than one goal, including Elche who beat Poli Ejido 2-0. A second half Pacheco penalty helped Albacete to a 1-0 win over Lorca, taking them out of the relegation spots, and there was the same result in Tarragona, where Nàstic beat Eibar. (18.09.05)
Ciudad Murcia's stay at the top of the table was short lived as the recently formed side fell to a 1-0 defeat at Almería. Soriano scored the only goal in the second half to leave Levante in first position before they had even played their match. Tenerife moved up into the top three, level with Ciudad on points, after coming from behind to beat Real Madrid Castilla 1-2 with strikes from Toni Moral and Maikel. The win takes them above Sporting Gijón, who lost 1-0 at Málaga B, the Asturians first defeat of the season and their opponents first victory. Elsewhere two of the newly promoted sides met, Hércules running out 1-2 winners to leave their hosts Castellón firmly anchored at the bottom of the table. (17.09.05)
