A total of 19 teams have already been confirmed for the upcoming 2023-24 LaLiga season. Now, the final spot will be decided through a playoff final between Alaves and Levante in the La Liga 2 promotion play-off. Levante earned their place in the final by defeating Albacete 3-0 on Wednesday. In the process, they completed an impressive 6-1 overall victory.
On Thursday, the second semi-final took place between Eibar and Alaves, with the first leg ending in a draw. However, Alaves emerged triumphant with a 2-0 win. They secured a 3-1 aggregate victory and advancing to the final.
The final will see Javi Calleja, Levante’s current head coach, facing his former team. Calleja was sacked by Alaves in December 2021, and now he has the chance to prevent his former club from returning to the top division of Spanish football.
The final showdown between Alaves and Levante is anticipated to be a thrilling match, as both teams will be highly motivated to secure the coveted promotion to LaLiga.
