    • 74' WHAT A MISS! Diogo Salomao contrives to head over the bar at the far post after Claudio Bravo completely missed a right-wing cross. Sociedad living dangerously.

    • 57' DEPOR sub: Aythami replaced by Nelson Oliveira.

    • 54' It looks like Depor are about to make a sub.
    • 53' Prieto slips a ball in behind for Griezmann but the flag goes up to deny him a free run at goal.
    • 52' GOAL. Levante have taken a 1-0 lead against Real Betis. That would put them on 48 points, but with Sevilla winning they won't make that final Europa place unless things change.

    • 51' Sociedad trying to keep possession and take the sting out of Deportivo.
    • 50' GOAL! Bilbao have taken a 2-1 lead at Rayo Vallecano.

    • 48' Depor first on the attack but the corner they win ultimately comes to nothing.
    • 47' EUROPEAN PLACES: Sevilla leading 2-1 means they would get ninth and a Europa League place as it stands. Sociedad would qualify for the Champions League with 66 points, with Valencia dropping into the Europa League with 65.
    • 47' As it stands: RELEGATED - Depor 35, Zaragoza 35, Mallorca 36. SAFE: Celta 37.
    • 46' KICK OFF! Sociedad restart the match. A huge 45 minutes for both teams.
    • 45' HALf-TIME: Depor 0-1 Sociedad. As it stands Griezmann's goal places Real in the top four with Valencia dropping to fifth. At the bottom, Celta will survive with Mallorca, Zaragoza and Depor all going down.
    • 44' GOAL! Sevilla 2-1 Valencia. Negredo nets his second from the spot to strengthen Sociedad's grip on fourth spot as it stands. And it has just got worse for Los Che as Jonas has been sent off.

    • 43' GOAL! Mallorca 2-1 Valladolid. Depor drop to 19th as it stands.
      Recommended Link
    • 42' It's proving to be a truly intriguing first 45 minutes in the La Liga finale. Can Sevilla do Sociedad a favour and keep out Valencia? Or can Depor turn this around and secure survival?
    • 41' HUGE GOAL! Sevilla have equalised against Valencia which means Sociedad are back in the top four as it stands. Negredo on target for Sevilla.

    • 40' Artiles booked.
    • 39' GOAL. Granada lead Getafe courtesy of Nolito's strike.
    • 38' Silvo booked for Depor.
    • 37' WHAT A MISS! Vela fires well over the top when clear on goal after being played in by the very aware Griezmann. Another let off for Depor.
    • 36' GOAL. Bilbao have equalised at Rayo through Susaeta.
    • 35' Survival is still in Depor's hands. If they can turn this around and claim a win they will stay up.
    • 34' Depor dominating this match now but Sociedad remain the greater threat on the coutner attack.
    • 32' GOAL! Mallorca 1-1 Valladolid. Mallorca return to the foot of the table following the equaliser from Bueno. But it doesn't change the complexion of who stays up and who goes down. At the moment, it's Celta who will survive.
      Recommended Link
    • 31' Ricki fizzes in a shot on the turn... great save by Bravo.
    • 30' GOAL! ... No. It's offside. Carlos Vela's deflected shot is parried by Aranzubia and the rebound is tucked home. But it's ruled offside. A HUGE sigh of relief for Depor and their fans.
    • 29' Markel Bergara booked for Sociedad.
    • 28' Elsewhere tonight. Rayo Vallecano are 1-0 up against Bilbao courtesy of a goal from Vazquez. It doesn't affect the top and bottom of the table though.
    • 27' A spell of Deportivo pressure comes to nothing as Sociedad defend resolutely.
    • 26' As it stands at the bottom: SAFE: Celta de Vigo 37 points. DOWN: Mallorca 36, Depor 35, Zaragoza 35.
    • 24' Silvio cuts in from the left and lashes a shot that arcs wide of goal. Depor attempting an immediate response.
    • 23' As it stands at the top: Valencia 68 points; Sociedad 66 points.
    • 22' GOAL! Sociedad take a 1-0 lead. That keeps the pressure up on Valencia. Griezmann tucks home his 11th of the season after Daniel Aranzubia could only parry a shot into his path.
    • 20' The goals elsewhere must have been transmitted to the crowd who now seem very subdued.
    • 19' But plenty of football to be played until the fat lady sings.
    • 18' Lots of goals flying in around La Liga in the early stages. To clarify: As it stands Valencia would take the final CL spot while Celta de Vigo would stay up. Depor, Zaragoza and Mallorca would all go down.
    • 16' GOAL! Mallorca lead Valladolid. That lifts them off the bottom but wouldn't affect Deportivo or Celta de Vigo.
      Recommended Link
    • 15' GOAL! Celta Vigo lead Espanyol. That means Deportivo would drop into the bottom three and Celta would stay up.
      Recommended Link
    • 14' So as it stands, even if Sociedad win tonight they cannot catch Valencia in fourth spot.
    • 13' Chance at the other end as Bruno Gama hammers over the top under pressure from Sociedad keeper, Claudio Bravo.
    • 12' Antoine Griezmann thrashes one wide from 25 yards out.
    • 11' GOAL! Banega has given Valencia the lead in Sevilla. Not good news for Sociedad.
      Recommended Link
    • 10' On Twitter @optajose has tweeted: "2 - Zaragoza have won their final game of each of the last 2 campaigns; something they need to do here if they are to avoid relegation. Rope". At the moment they a goalless with Atletico Madrid.
    • 9' Tricky feet from Ricki on the left as he drives a low ball into the box that causes a few problems for Soceidad before they finally manage to clear their lines.
    • 8' We are still goalless in all of the late kick offs in La Liga tonight.
    • 7' Montanier is leaving to take charge of Rennes next season.
    • 6' Philippe Montanier is taking charge of Sociedad for the last time tonight. His pre-match thoughts were as follows: "It gives me tremendous satisfaction to see how much this team has progressed, both in attitude and mentality. The squad have been incredible and we will go all out for fourth place. We know it'll be difficult, but with these players, anything is possible."
    • 5' As it stands Depor survive but Sociedad would miss out on the Champions League. Expect lots of twists and turns between now and the 90-minute mark though.
    • 4' Depor coach Fernando Vazquez was in bullish mood ahead of the game. He said: "Our rivals say we have the hardest game. That's one way of looking at it, because they will have to be very optimistic, because their only hope is that we slip up. As I've said to my players, I wouldn't swap our places with Celta, Mallorca or Zaragoza. We have the initiative, that's fundamental. Our fate is in our own hands, and that is a tremendous advantage."
    • 3' Philippe Montanier's side were in the driving seat to finish fourth in the league with five games remaining, but two draws and a defeat in their last four matches means that they must not only win in Galicia, but also hope that Sevilla can do them a favour by beating or drawing with fourth-placed Valencia.
    • 2' Teams - DEPORTIVO: Aranzubia, Aythami, Ze Castro, Silvio, Pablo, Dominguez, Abel Aguilar, Valeron, Bruno Gama, Pizzi, Riki. /// REAL SOCIEDAD: Bravo, C. Martinez, Gonzalez, Bergara, I. Martinez, Griezmann, Illarramendi, Agirretxe, Prieto, Vela, De La Bella.
    • 1' KICK OFF! Deportivo get this crucial game underway.
    • 19:55 At the bottom of the table, Deportivo start the day just one point clear of Celta Vigo and Real Zaragoza, and two points clear of bottom club Real Mallorca. Any three of those four teams can go down today. Celta host Espanyol while Zaragoza are home to Atletico Madrid and Mallorca welcome Real Valladolid.
    • 19:50 Real Sociedad start the day two points behind fourth-placed Valencia, who travel to Sevilla, so the final Champions League spot is still up for grabs.
    • 19:45 Hello and welcome to our live coverage of what could be a thrilling final day in La Liga. We will be focusing on Deportivo v Real Sociedad as it's a huge game for both clubs, but we will have goal updates from elsewhere to keep you up to date.
