Las Palmas and Zaragoza will meet in the play-off final after both won through their respective ties this weekend. Las Palmas go through on the away goal rule after drawing 0-0 at home to Valladolid on Saturday, the strike by Araujo in the first leg giving them the edge. For the second game in a row Rubi’s side ended with nine men after Hernán Pérez and Javi Varas were sent off, the latter after giving away a last minute penalty which Araujo blasted over the bar with defender Rueda in goal, but the Canary Islanders had done enough to reach the final for the second consecutive year.
The following day Zaragoza produced the come-back of the season, a 1-4 victory at Girona taking them though as well thanks to the number of goals scored away from home. A 0-3 home defeat on Thursday seemed to have left the Maños down and out, but Willian José converted a penalty and then headed in a Pedro free kick in the first half hour, and Cabrera and Fernández added two more either side of half time to put them in front. Aday got one back after that though to set up a frenetic finish.
Meanwhile the play-offs for promotion to the second division have reached the last four, regional group champions Huesca and Cádiz through to play Huracán Valencia and Athletic Bilbao B respectively in the two finals. Matches take place over two legs in the next two weekends. (14.06.15)
