Second division B play-offs, semi-finals first leg
A second half strike from Angel Sánchez gave Universidad Las Palmas a 1-0 win over Sevilla Atlético in their group A match, and they are favourites to meet Burgos in their group final after the Castilla-León side drew 0-0 at Alcoyano.
Group B is all square, with the big match between Córdoba and Pontevedra (both relegated from 2A two seasons ago) ending without goals, and Palencia and Huesca drawing 1-1, Iván Carril equalising for the home side two minutes from the end after Camacho had put the visitors ahead.
Victories to nothing for the home sides in group C, Racing Ferrol on track to bounce back just a year after going down with a 2-0 win over Linares. The goalscorers were Gustavo and Jonathan Carril (curiously the brother of Palencia's Iván, both on loan from Deportivo La Coruña). Elsewhere Real Unión beat Alicante 1-0 thanks to a last minute penalty from Huegun.
Rayo Vallecano virtually ensured their place in the group D final after beating Portuense 0-2 in their first leg tie. Piti got the first on the stroke of half time and Llorens scored the second from the penalty spot after the restart.
In the relegation play-offs, ex first division side Extremadura are virtually down after losing their first leg match at Pájara Playas 3-0. The battle between the two reserve sides is wide open though after Valladolid B beat Valencia Mestalla 2-1. (03.06.07)
There was one match on Saturday in the second division B play-offs, Eibar getting off to a good start in their fight to return to the second division at the first attempt after drawing their group D first leg tie 0-0 at L'Hospitalet. (02.06.07)
