SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: REAL BETIS & SPORTING DE GIJON PROMOTE DIRECTLY TO THE SPANISH LIGA

REAL BETIS & SPORTING DE GIJON PROMOTE DIRECTLY TO THE SPANISH LIGA

Last Round (42) played today of the Spanish 2º Division with two Clubs that go straight into Liga after today's final results (check widget on the side).  Real Betis & Real Sporting de Gijon (curiously both playing today with Betis losing 0 - 3 ) have been promoted directly into Liga. Great news personally, as the two teams I follow are Atletico de Madrid & Sporting de Gijon, the latter being a member of a "Social Club" in Gijon.

Real Betis had nothing to lose today while their opponents Sporting de Gijon had to win & Girona draw or lose. The "miracle" happened for Sporting when in the other decisive match Girona was equalized by Lugo in the last minute (1-1 final result), thus allowing Sporting to promote directly into Liga next season. Girona was not happy & have insinuated that perhaps Lugo (which was not playing for any promotion or relegation) was given an "incentive" to win, something Lugo categorically dismissed as outrageous. 

Girona is still in there with a chance to promote & will now meet Real Zaragoza, while Las Palmas meets Valladolid to play-off between themselves for the last place (team) to join Betis & Sporting in Liga.

The other news is more sad as we know the 4 Clubs that get relegated to the Spanish 2º B Division, they are Barcelona B, Sabadell, Recreativo de Huelva & Racing de Santander.
