A festival atmosphere at Leganés on Saturday, the Madrid based side ending their first ever season in the top flight some four points clear of the bottom three after a 1-1 draw against cup finalists Alavés. The visitors had the better chances in the first half, Ibai Gómez in particular volleying a shot wide and then having a strike ruled out for a borderline offside. Guerrero tested Pacheco with a free kick after the break, but Sobrino and Camarasa went close, and some twenty minutes in to the second half Krsticic headed the Vitoria based side in to the lead from Feddal’s cross. Alberto Bueno brought another good save out of Champagne however, and with a couple of minutes to go Timor equalized with an impressive shot from outside of the area to round off a magical night for the home fans.
