Notes:
  1. ^ Due to the poor condition of their field at Buenavista after the Civil War, Oviedo did not enter the 1939–40 La Liga. It was decided to allow Oviedo one season to improve their pitch, automatically qualifying them to play the 1940–41 La Liga. A match between the two last qualified teams would determine the team that would occupy their spot.
  2. ^ a b Barcelona finished ahead of Hércules on head-to-head points: Hércules–Barcelona 2–2, Barcelona–Hércules 1–0.

Relegation play-offEdit

After the Spanish Civil War, Oviedo withdrew from the 1939–40 La Liga, so their place was decided to be occupied by the winner of a play-off between Athletic Madrid, now Athletic Aviación, and Osasuna; the two last qualified teams in the previous season.
