Real Valladolid were relegated from La Liga on the final day of the season as they drew 0-0 at home against Getafe on Sunday.

Six Spanish teams were in danger of the drop, each knowing a win would guarantee them safety, but Valladolid, whose president is Brazilian great Ronaldo, could not find a way through.

Valladolid finished one point from safety, going down with Espanyol and Elche, whose fate had already been sealed.

Almeria, who finished 17th, survived after Adri Embarba hit a brace against his former side Espanyol to earn them a 3-3 draw at the RCDE Stadium.

Celta Vigo survived with a 2-1 win over champions Barcelona, thanks to a Gabri Veiga brace.
