Official: Real Valladolid secure La Liga return

The first club promoted back to the top tier of Spanish football for next season has on Sunday been confirmed.

The outfit in question? Real Valladolid.

Real are for their part fresh off a return to winning ways, in the most spectacular of fashions.

After heading into injury-time in a home meeting with Villarreal B trailing by two goals to one, strikes on the part of Víctor Meseguer and Mamadou Sylla turned the clash on its head, guiding the hosts to all three points.

As much saw Paulo Pezzolano’s troops leapfrog Leganes to the top of the La Liga 2 table.

Not only that, but, four points clear of third-placed Eibar with just a solitary round of fixtures remaining, Real Valladolid have officially secured promotion.

After missing out on survival in agonising fashion last season, the Pucelanos’ absence from La Liga, in turn, has lasted just a solitary year.

Congratulations, Real!
