Espanyol net big win over Deportivo, Getafe hammer Villarreal

Espanyol net big win over Deportivo, Getafe hammer Villarreal Espanyol registered only their second win of the season by beating struggling Deportivo de La Coruna 4-1. They took the lead after just five minutes when Leo Baptistao headed in a cross from Victor Sanchez. And the advantage was doubled in the 22nd minute when Depor defender Alejandro Arribas deflected a corner onto his own net. Depor pulled one back through Celso Borges eight minutes into the second half, but Gerard Moreno made the points safe with a penalty and a late tap-in. Getafe thrashed Villarreal 4-0 to secure their first home win of the season. The hosts had suffered one-goal defeats to Sevilla and Barcelona at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez but got off the mark at the third attempt and ended Villarreal's four-match unbeaten run in all competitions. Angel Rodriguez gave Getafe a 54th-minute lead when he headed in Juan Cala's flick on at the back post and -- 10 minutes later -- Jorge Molina pounced on Ruben Semedo's hesitancy to steal possession and slot past Mariano Barbosa. Markel Bergara forced in a third in the 67th minute after Barbosa had somehow kept out Cala's close-range header and Angel nodded in his second in stoppage time from Faycal Fajr's corner. Celta Vigo earned their first away win since April by swatting aside Eibar 4-0. Two in-swinging Pione Sisto free kicks gave Celta a 2-0 lead, the first headed in by Gustavo Cabral in the 17th minute before Sergi Gomez got the slightest of touches on the second six minutes later. Sisto set up a third six minutes before half-time as his left-wing cross was volleyed home by Pablo Hernandez at the back post. Daniel Wass added a fourth 18 minutes from time after slotting in Hugo Mallo's cut-back. Leganes ended their three-match winless run with a 2-0 victory at Las Palmas. Claudio Beauvue finished off a counter-attack two minutes into the second half before Javier Eraso wrapped up victory in the sixth minute of added time.
