Sunday saw plenty of drama in La Liga, with some spectacular individual performances and late goals that could be pivotal in the Spanish league this season.

Aritz Aduriz’s first-half double fired Athletic Bilbao to their first away win of the season, ending their recent poor run against fellow La Liga side Granada who are also caught up in the season’s early relegation battle.

Sevilla usually rely on their prolific goalscorer Alvara Negredo to fire them to victory, but the striker cold not score at the weekend and were held to a goaless draw by visitors Levante.

Osasuna’s season went from bad to worse as they had a man sent off and lost to Real Valladolid. Patrick Ebert’s late winning goal proved to be the decisive moment of the game and ensured Osasuna remained rock bottom of La Liga.

Espanyol had Diego Colotto to thank for their victory over Real Sociedad which gave them their first away win in La Liga this season. The goal was Colotto’s first for the club and it sealed the 1-0 victory, rendering the pressure from the home side earlier in the match pointless.

Deportivo La Coruna sealed their first win since the first game of the 2012/13 season as portuguese winger Bruno Gama produced an outstanding performance and scored a classy individual goal to grab all three points against Real Mallorca at the Riazor.
