La Liga Special: Relegated Teams, Promoted Teams, Teams That Have Qualified For European Competitions


The 2023/24 Spanish La Liga campaign is nearing its culmination, with teams already knowing their fate for the coming season.

Clubs that will be relegated to the second-tier division are gradually preparing for their exit, while teams that will qualify for European competitions are taking shape.

Most teams in the La Liga have about 2 matches left to play this campaign, and as such, some important positions remain undecided.

Anyway, the league crown has been decided, with Real Madrid already confirmed as champions.

Teams That Have Qualified For The UEFA Champions League?

Teams that will play in next season’s UEFA Champions League from Spain have been confirmed, with Atletico Madrid, Girona, and Barcelona joining Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Clubs That Have Qualified For The UEFA Europa League And Europa Conference League?

The UEFA Europa League spots which will go to the 5th and 6th team in La Liga are yet to be decided, with Atletico Bilbao (5th), Real Sociedad (6th), Real Betis (7th) and Villarreal (8th) all having the chance of qualification.

The same also applies to the UEFA Europa Conference League, with the aforementioned teams’ berth in Europe also unconfirmed.

Teams That Have Relegated From La Liga?

For the drop zone, 20th-placed Almeria and 19th-placed Granada are already doomed for relegation, while Cadiz, who occupy the 18th spot on the log can still beat the drop.

Cadiz have amassed 32 points this campaign, with two games left and the possibility of amassing 38 points.

If they win their remaining league matches and Mallorca, who sit 17th on the log with 38 points lose theirs, then Cadiz will remain in the top flight, while the former will be relegated to the Segunda division.

Segunda Division Overview – La Liga Promotion Status And Relegation Status

Moreover, there are also teams aiming to gain promotion to La Liga from the Segunda division, and just like the top tier, some teams in the league have 2 games to play, while others have 3 matches left.

Leganes sit at the summit of the Spanish second-tier division with 70 points from 40 matches, but their promotion status is still not guaranteed.

Real Valladolid occupy the 2nd automatic spot, as they sit second on the log with 68 points from 39 matches.

Despite the season nearing its climax, no team is guaranteed promotion to the top flight – a truly shocking situation.

Meanwhile, Eibar (3rd), Racing Santander (4th), Espanyol (5th), and Real Oviedo (6th) occupy the promotion qualification places.

Interestingly, unlike the La Liga where two teams are already sure of their relegation status, no team in the Segunda division has been mathematically relegated.

SD Amorebieta (19th), Alcoron (20th), FC Andorra (21st), and Villarreal B (22nd) still have a chance of securing safety.

It will be interesting to see how the La Liga season unfolds, with the Segunda division also expected to produce drama in the closing stages.

The Spanish footballing system is one that a lot of eyeballs are certainly on, from punters to footballing enthusiasts and even potential investors looking to pump money into the country through football.
