Manu Garcia and Raul Garcia scored the goals as Alaves beat Numancia 2-0 to secure promotion from Spain's Segunda Division.

The Basque club will play La Liga football for the first time in 10 years next season.

Alaves was two goals to the good at half-time to put the Estadio de Mendizorroza in party mood.

Leganes is well placed to join Alaves in the top flight next season, in second place with one match to play, but Gimnastic Tarragona is lurking just a point behind.

Alaves could have a say in which team joins it in promotion, as it travels to Gimnastic on the final day, while Leganes heads to Mirandes.
