Getafe, meanwhile, were beaten 2-1 away to Real Betis to end any hopes of survival as they finished 19th in the table, three points from safety.
Rayo and Getafe join Levante in being relegated to the Segunda Division, with today's defeat to Rayo leaving the basement outfit seven points adrift of safety.
