Sporting Gijon have been relegated from La Liga despite a 1-0 win over Eibar in their penultimate game of the season this evening.
Gijon went into the match knowing that only a win would give them any chance of taking their battle for survival to the final day, and they duly held up their end of the bargain as Burgui's goal fired them to victory at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua.
Deportivo's superior head-to-head record means that they can no longer be caught on the final day, despite Gijon having won back-to-back games for the first time since January 2015 in a desperate attempt to keep their hopes alive.
Gijon's relegation ends a two-year stay in the top flight of Spanish football, and last time they were relegated it took them three seasons to return to La Liga.
However, Real Madrid continue to match them all the way as a Cristiano Ronaldo brace helped them to victory by the same scoreline over Sevilla, keeping them level on points with their fierce rivals having played a game fewer.
Madrid could now move top when they face Celta Vigo on Wednesday before taking the title race down to the final day next weekend.
