Second division - day 14
Real Sociedad set aside their institutional problems for a couple of hours, beating leaders Málaga 2-0 to move up to eighth in the table. Aranburu opened the scoring in the tenth minute and Carlos Martínez added the second later on. Málaga stay top though after Numancia lost 0-2 to Granada 74. Luque and Fagoaga got the goals to hand the Soria based side their second home defeat in a row. Sporting Gijón took advantage to move into second place, ahead of their rivals on goal difference, after a 4-2 win over Cádiz. Kike Mateo scored twice and Moran and Castro got the rest to leave the Andalusians on the brink of the drop zone.
Sevilla Atlético held on to fourth spot after drawing 1-1 at Racing Ferrol, Juan Pablo equalising Pereira's early goal from the penalty spot on the quarter hour mark. Celta are in sixth place after a similar result against Gimnàstic, Rubén scrambling home a last minute leveller for the ten man Galicians after Calle had put the visitors in front in the first half. And Hércules are up to seventh after a 0-3 win at Eibar, César, Juanma and Cámara on the scoresheet for Andoni Goikoetxea's side.
Down at the bottom, Poli Ejido are on the verge of escaping the drop zone after a fourth minute strike from Toedtli helped them to a 1-0 win over Castellón. Only two points separate them from their opponents, who ended the weekend four places above them in the table. Xerez are three points away from safety though after drawing 1-1 with Salamanca, and Albacete stay in next to bottom spot after they drew 0-0 with Tenerife. (25.11.07)
Only two games on Saturday evening in the second division, with none of the top ranked sides involved. Bottom club Las Palmas recorded only their second victory of the season, beating Córdoba 3-1 to move level with Albacete on points. Adrián scored two, including a penalty, and Nacho Casanova made it three before Arthuro got a late consolation in the last minute. Meanwhile Alavés inched away from the danger zone after drawing 2-2 at Elche, although they felt unlucky not to come away with more after twice taking the lead, Pere Martí saving a point for the locals with five minutes to go.
