Álvaro Negredo after a disappointing match for Sevilla. Image:

4 (Gavilán 2, Colunga, Arizmendi) – Levante 1 (Rafa Jordá). As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Jaime Gavilán seems to be off to a good start this season after a long rut.

Sporting 2 (Botía, Diego Castro penalty) – Mallorca 0. Mallorca keeper Dudu Aouate was having an off night, despite a stellar performance in the season opener against Real Madrid. Sporting defender Alberto Botía got the first goal of the match just after half-time (I do love it when defenders score, and he is a lovely one).

Sevilla 0  – Deportivo 0. After a mind-numbing start, the game picked up in the first half, but not so much that anyone actually scored a goal. Sevilla had a number of missed chances, and reserve keeper Manu gave an excellent performance for Depor.

Málaga 5 (Fernando 2, Juanmi 2, Quincy)- Zaragoza 3 (Edmilson, Marco Perez, Ander). Málaga managed to get an incredible five goals in the first 34 minutes of play. Seventeen-year-old Juanmi got two of those goals, becoming the youngest player in La Liga history to score two goals in one game. Zaragoza started fighting back shortly before the break, and managed not to be totally humiliated, but failed to close the gap.

Almería 2 (Piatti, Ulloa)- Real Sociedad 2 (Tamudo, Sutil). José Ulloa rescued Almería at the last minute, ending the game in a 2-2 draw.
