Almeria promoted back to the top-flight

Almeria will return to La Liga after a two-year absence next season after they sealed a 4-0 aggregate win over Girona in the promotion playoff final with a 3-0 win at home over the Catalans on Saturday night.

Already leading 1-0 from the first-leg in Girona earlier in the week, Aleix Vidal got the hosts off to a perfect start on 17 minutes as he fired home from the edge of the area to give the Andalusians a comfortable advantage.

Brazilian Charles, who also scored the winner in the first-leg, then sealed the victory on the night with two more goals in the second-half to ensure Almeria's promotion.

The club will join the automatically-promoted Elche and Villarreal in the top-flight next season.
