MADRID, April 22 (Reuters) - Las Palmas were relegated from La Liga on Sunday with a crushing 4-0 home defeat by Alaves in the rain.
Munir El Haddadi struck twice with Alvaro Medran and Ruben Sobrino also netting as four second half goals from the visitors consigned Las Palmas to their fate in a mostly-empty Estadio Gran Canaria.
Paco Jemez’s side have 21 points from 34 games and are 13 short of Levante in 17th with only four matches left to play. They will join bottom side Malaga in the second division next season.
Alaves’ triumph confirms their safety, sitting 13th with 41 points from 34 games, an impressive feat masterminded by Abelardo Fernandez who took over in December with the Basque side bottom of the table. (Reporting by Rik Sharma Editing by Christian Radnedge)
