Segunda: Playoffs decided, Cultural down

Real Valladolid and Numancia have secured the last two playoff spots in the Segunda, while Cultural Leonesa have been relegated.

Cadiz, Osasuna and Real Oviedo also had a chance of sneaking into the top six, but Numancia’s 2-1 win against Cultural and Valladolid’s 3-2 victory over the Pamplonans sealed the deal for the pair in question.

Numancia’s place in the playoffs was particularly notable, given they only pipped Oviedo by the virtue of a superior head-to-head and relegated Cultural in the process.

Former top-flight sides Almeria and Cordoba stayed up with a draw at Lugo and a win against Sporting Gijon respectively.

They kick off the playoffs on Wednesday with a semi-final first leg against Real Zaragoza, before the return fixture in Aragon three days later.

Valladolid, meanwhile, face Sporting – who only dropped into the second tier last season – on Thursday and again on Sunday.
