Liga - Deportivo return to Liga

Sun, 27 May 21:42:00 2012

Deportivo La Coruna made a swift return to La Liga as second division champions after coming back to beat Huesca 2-1 at home on Sunday.

Deportivo-Huesca - 0

Substitute Xisco bundled in the winning goal in the 70th minute and Deportivo withstood a late surge from the visitors at the Riazor to move on to 88 points from 41 matches with one game left to play.

The Galicians were four points ahead of regional rivals Celta Vigo and six above third-placed Valladolid.

The top two in the second division secure automatic promotion, while third through to sixth go into a playoff for the last promotion spot.

Depor were relegated in 2011 after a 20-year spell in the top flight, when they won their only La Liga title in 2000 and the King's Cup in 2002, and regularly competed in European competition.

  1. They need to strenghten the team. They already sold­ Guardado. I hope they stay up next season and return to­ Champions League in 2 or 3 years. Super Depor!
