Football is a sport changing, One day you're on top and soon, sunk in the mud of the ranks. This is the case of many Spanish historical teams that went to spend most of its history in First Division and even win titles, begin with the arrival of the new century a spiral of ascents-descents that prevent them from consolidating. We remind the most notorious cases.
Real Betis is for obvious reasons one of the classics of Spanish football. With a long history in the top flight and a loyal and numerous fans, Betis have spent most of their history among the great. But nevertheless, the arrival of the XXI century brought some successes in the form of European classification and even titles like the Copa del Rey but 3 Second descents (2000, 2009 Y 2014) with its attendant promotions.
The case of Zaragoza is very similar to the Betis but with a much worse institutional and economic situation. The club hand is one of the clubs with more baggage in the history of Spanish football and has gone on to win European and national championships.

Then he marveled to Europe but the second decade of the new century, the thing seemed to go wrong. Down to the point in 2011, 2013 and have many numbers to repeat 2015.
Other teams like Levante, Real Sociedad, Celta Vigo and even perhaps the Lightning also reached down and therefore up several times during the new century although it seems that in recent years have managed to stabilize and maintain a regular line in the top flight. Something the teams named in this article hope to recover.
