Second division – day 42

The league stage of the second division came to an end this weekend, and only the play-offs for the last promotion spot remain. Osasuna and Granada were already sure of the two promotion spots, and they celebrated with wins against Oviedo and Alcorcón. Málaga, Albacete and Mallorca had already secured their places in the play-offs as well, and only one spot had to be decided this weekend, Deportivo beating Córdoba 2-0 to stay ahead of Cádiz and Oviedo, who both lost. The play-off semi-finals take place over two legs this week, with Deportivo to face Málaga, and Mallorca playing Albacete. The last of the four relegation places was also decided last weekend, Rayo Majadahonda going down with Nàstic, Córdoba and Reus, and two of the teams that will be replacing them are already known, Racing Santander and Madrid based Fuenlabrada winning their “regional group champions” promotion play-offs last weekend. Racing of course have played many seasons in the top flight, but “Fuenla” are promoted to the second division for the first time in their history. The other two sides joining them will be decided in the remaining play-offs over the next three weeks or so. (09.06.19)
