Two goals in the last 30 minutes from Iago Aspas and Enrique De Lucas gave Celta Vigo a 2-0 victory over Sevilla at Balaidos on Friday evening.

Alvaro Negredo showed signs of continuing his good form in the sixth minute when he lashed a strike at goal only to see it just go over the bar, but Celta grew into the match towards the end of the second half.

The home side eventually took the lead on the hour mark when Hedwiges Maduro handled in the area and a penalty was awarded. Aspas slotted home the penalty to give the hosts he lead. This catalysed Sevilla into action, with both Negredo and Jose Antonio Reyes coming close to the equaliser with long rang strikes.

However, the hosts weathered the storm and killed the game off five minutes from time when De Lucas latched on to Augusto Fernandez’s cross to head into the bottom corner.

Rayo bounced back from their 6-1 trouncing by Valladolid last weekend with a narrow 2-1 victory over Deportivo at Vallecas.

The home side got off to a good start and were able to take the lead in the 20th minute when recalled duo Leo and Piti linked up for the latter to latch on to a pass inside the area to turn the ball into the bottom right corner. Jose Carlos doubled the lead for the hosts just before the half-hour mark when his shot from the edge of the area deflected off Ze Castro into the bottom corner.

Deportivo were given a lifeline four minutes before half-time when Javi Fuego fouled Alex Bergantinos inside the area and Pizzi smashed the penalty home, but Rayo managed to keep the visitors at bay to gain their first win in five games.

A second-half penalty kick from Diego Castro gave Getafe their second win of the week with a tight 1-0 win over Real Zaragoza on Saturday night.

Zaragoza were on the back foot for the majority of the match after Romaric was sent off for a high tackle on Mehdi Lacen, which gave Getafe a man advantage.

The visitors eventually went in front in the 64th minute when Zaragoza went yet another man down after Alvaro Gonzalez brought down Pedro Leon inside the area. Castro squeezed the kick through Roberto Gago and into the net, giving Luis García Plaza’s men the win. 

An Oscar Gonzalez header for Valladolid in the last 10 minutes denied Espanyol their first win of the season as the honours were shared in a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening.

Neither side looked to be on-form in the first half, but Valladolid would have went into the break the happier team after Victor Alvarez earned his second yellow card just before the break to put Espanyol a man down.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, Mauricio Pochettino’s men took the lead in the 70th minute when Antonio Rukavina pushed Samuele Longo inside the area and Joan Verdu converted the resulting penalty.

However, nine minutes from time Oscar got on the end of a near post flick-on to squeeze the ball over the line for his third goal in two games, ensuring the points were shared.

A goal in either half from Real Betis saw Pepe Mel’s side move up to fourth place in the Spanish Primera Division after a 2-0 victory over Real Sociedad at the Benito Villamarin.

Betis looked eager to bounce back from their run of consecutive defeats, and took the lead in the 17th minute when Juan Carlo’s cross into the six yard box was met by Paulao, who bulleted a header into the bottom corner.

Ruben Castro doubled the lead nine minutes from time when he nodded home Benat’s free kick, ensuring Betis ended the weekend in the Champions League positions.

A solitary goal from new signing Obafemi Martins gave Levante a vital 1-0 win over city rivals Valencia at Ciudad de Valencia on Sunday morning.

The hosts were unbeaten at home in La Liga prior to the match, and Valencia had previously failed to win on the road. Martins ensured this record was upheld in the 22nd minute when he latched on to Gustavo Munua punt upfield before controlling excellently and firing the ball past Vicente Guaita.

Roberto Soldado, Jonathan Viera, and Fernando Gago all had decent chances to equalise for the away side in the second half, but Juan Ignacio Martinez’s men held out for the three points.

Granada’s recent revival continued as they recorded an impressive 2-1 away victory at Mallorca.

All the goals arrived in the second half; Emilio Nsue was given his marching orders for bringing down Gabriel Torje inside the area, and Youssef El Arabi coolly converted the kick.

Torje himself netted a second as roles were reversed, El Arabi playing him through on goal to despatch confidently past Dudu Aouate.

Tomer Hemed provided a consolation for the Islanders, but Granada held on for their first away win of the campaign.

Athletic Bilbao bounced back from last week’s derby defeat to Real Sociedad by edging out Osasuna 1-0 at San Mames.

The Basque side have struggled for form so far this season, finding themselves hovering above the relegation zone, and despite the best efforts of visiting goalkeeper Andres Fernandez, were able to clinch the points.

Aritz Aduriz pounced in the 12th minute to continue his good run of form since joining from Valencia, and ease the pressure on coach Marcelo Bielsa.
