(Reuters) – Huesca were relegated from La Liga on Sunday after they were hammered 6-2 by a rampant Valencia, who scored five times during a ruthless first-half blitz.
Huesca, who were promoted to La Liga for the first time last year, are bottom of the standings on 30 points after 36 games and became the second team to be relegated after 19th-placed Rayo Vallecano also went down this weekend.
Valencia kept alive their chances of grabbing the fourth Champions League spot by leapfrogging Sevilla into fifth place. They are on 55 points after 36 games and are three behind fourth-placed Getafe.
