Second division B play-offs

Results on Sunday largely favoured the higher ranked teams, who were all playing away from home in the first leg. Rayo Vallecano took a step towards returning to the second division at the fourth attempt after a 1-1 draw at Benidorm, and the other group A match between Zamora and Linares also finished 1-1. Ponferradina got off to a good start in group B, overturning an early goal to 1-2 win at Mérida, and Alicante came away from Fuerteventura with a 0-0 draw. The only home side to win were Deportivo B, who beat Écija 1-0, and Gavà and Huesca drew 2-2 in the other group C tie. And there was another 0-0 draw between Barakaldo and Girona, the winners to play Ceuta or Pontevedra in the group D final. (25.05.08)

The second division B play-offs began this weekend, with four sides to be promoted from the sixteen who finished in the top four of their regional groups. The match between Ceuta and Pontevedra was brought forward to Saturday, with the Galicians having the edge after a 1-1 draw. Tato gave the North Africans the lead with an angled shot early on, but Javi Rodríguez equalised on the stroke of half time after keeper Lledó failed to clear. (24.05.08)
