Valladolid promoted to La Liga

Real Valladolid beat Alcorcon in the second division play-off final on Saturday to secure promotion to La Liga.


Valladolid, relegated from the top flight in 2010, won the first leg 1-0 in Madrid on Wednesday but were pegged back early in the second half in the return match.

Javi Guerra then scored the equaliser on the night that ensured a 2-1 aggregate victory.

Coached by former Serbian international Miroslav Djukic, Valladolid finished third in the regular-season standings behind champions Deportivo La Coruna and Celta Vigo who secured the two automatic promotion berths.

Tiny Alcorcon, famous for their 4-1 aggregate victory over neighbours Real Madrid in the 2009-10 Copa del Rey, have never played in La Liga.
