2011-2012 Spanish Segunda Season Review

The largest two clubs in the Spanish Segunda, Deportivo La Coruna and Celta de Vigo, both  with a history of success in La Liga fought for the Adelante title in 2011-2012 with La Coruna winning by six points and both clubs being automatically promoted. Another club with a La Liga history Real Valladolid also won promtion in the playoffs after finishing third during the season. Spain is one of the only leagues that allow "B" sides to compete at such a high level and the prospect list reflects that with Barcelona B having three players Deulofeu Gerrard, Sergi Roberto and Marc Muniesa in the list that also included Villarreal B, Joselu. Next season the league will include Real Madrid B side Castilla although Villarreal B were relegated despite finishing 12th because the senior club was relegated from La Liga to this league for next season.
