Malaga promoted to La Liga, Lecce up to Serie A

MILAN, June 15 (Reuters) - Lecce were promoted to Italy's Serie A on Sunday after drawing 1-1 at home with tiny Albinoleffe to complete a 2-1 aggregate playoff final win.

The side from the heel of Italy, who finished third in Serie B, are the final team to go up this season after Chievo Verona and Bologna won automatic promotion.

Lecce won 1-0 in the first leg on Wednesday having overcome Pisa in a two-legged playoff semi-final earlier this month. They return to the top flight two seasons after being relegated.

Albinoleffe, who play in Bergamo and have average crowds of 3,000, had beaten Brescia in their semi-final but could not continue the fairytale.

MADRID, June 15 (Reuters) - Malaga and Sporting Gijon were promoted to the Primera Liga with victories in their final games of the second division season on Sunday.

Malaga finished second behind already-promoted champions Numancia, after a 2-1 home win over Tenerife, and return to the top-flight after being relegated in 2006.

Sporting were level on points in third after a 2-0 home win against Eibar, and return after a ten-year spell in the second division.
