Leganes may be facing an uphill battle if they are to stay in Spain's top division for next season, but their 1-0 win away at fellow strugglers Espanyol was crucial in their fight to stay up.
Their now-famous matchday posters saw blue stripes painted over the traditional white surrender flag, evoking the club colours and the idea that they would never surrender.
Farewell to Calderon
The gradual demolition of the old Vicente Calderon stadium was completed with the final pieces of the structure removed.
A sad moment for all Atletico Madrid fans around the world. Former strikers Paulo Futre and Radamel Falcao even joined together to post the lyrics of the club anthem which celebrates going to the Vicente Calderon.
