Almería tried in every way to beat a relegated Alcorcón and, in this way, sign their promotion to the First Division without depending on their rivals.
It was not like that and the Andalusians did not go beyond the tie against an already relegated rival to complicate their chances of promotion.
Zarfino, in the 81st minute, scored after a great counterattack from Alcorcón.
