PRIMERA MATCH REPORT

Primera Week 38 - 20 May 2017 (16.00 UK)
2 - 2 Real Betis
Douglas 7, Carmona 79 (SG) Castro 22, 59 (RB)
El Molinon

Relegated Sporting Gijon salvaged some pride after they drew 2-2 with Real Betis in La Liga on Saturday.

Barcelona loanee Douglas pulled a shot into Dani Gimenez’s bottom right, but an awful mistake from Ivan Cuellar saw him rush off his line, miss the ball and gift Ruben Castro a tap-in.

Castro then bent one beautifully into Cuellar’s far-bottom corner for his brace, but Betis were made to pay for Jonas Martin crashing a free header onto the crossbar as Carlos Carmona bundled home from a lucky bounce in the box.

The Andalusians end the season on 39 points and in 15th place, six points and five positions worse off from last term, while Sporting finish 18th, four points adrift of Leganes.
