Sporting Gijon win relegates Getafe, Rayo Vallecano


Madrid (AFP) – Madrid’s representation in La Liga was reduced from four to two teams for next season as Getafe and Rayo Vallecano were relegated, while Sporting Gijon saved themselves with a 2-0 win over Villarreal on Sunday.

Getafe were the only side with matters in their own hands but succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at Real Betis to end their 12-year stay in the top flight.

That handed Sporting the chance to keep themselves up and they duly obliged as goals from Jony and Sergio Alvarez left coach and former Barcelona defender Abelardo Fernandez in tears on the touchline.

Rayo beat already-relegated Levante 3-1 thanks to goals from Pablo Hernandez, Roberto Trashorras and Miku, but victory couldn’t extend their longest ever stay in La Liga of five seasons as they fell a point short of Sporting.
