La Liga Review: Sporting survive as Getafe and Rayo are relegated


Sporting Gijon clinched survival on the final day of the Liga season as Getafe and Rayo Vallecano dropped into the Segunda.

Getafe started Sunday outside of the bottom three but fell into the relegation zone courtesy of a 2-1 defeat at Real Betis, while Sporting's surprise 2-0 home win over fourth-placed Villarreal ensured their safety.

Rayo also emerged victorious, but a 3-1 beating of bottom club Levante was in vain for Paco Jemez's men, who finished a point behind Sporting in 18th.
