Newly promoted Las Palmas handed Real Sociedad a 2-0 defeat at home. It turned out to be David Moyes’ last game at the helm of La Real as the Anoeta outfit sacked the former Everton and Manchester United boss after a series of poor results which see the side lying precariously close to the relegation zone in 16th.

Valencia, who had endured a difficult start to their league campaign this season, which has mounted the pressure on their manager Nuno Espirito Santo, gave a ruthless display of attacking football against high-flying Celta Vigo as they handed the Galicians a 5-1 thrashing at Balaidos. Paco Alcacer and Daniel Parejo both grabbed a double for the visitors while 2014 World Cup winning defender Shkodran Mustafi completed the scoring for Los Che. They are now seventh in the standings.

Lucas opened the scoring for Deportivo La Coruna with his strike in the 22nd minute against Levante at the Ciudad de Valencia, but the hosts found an equaliser through Roberto Camarasa in the second half to earn a point from the encounter. However, Levante remains at the bottom in the league table, whereas, the Galicians are now ninth in the standings.

Eibar registered a 3-1 win over Getafe at home. The tiny Basque club, who were relegated last season but were ultimately reinstated after financial troubles of Elche, are now lying in sixth, having won five, drawn four and lost two of their first eleven games in the league thus far.

A Javi Guerra double earned Rayo Vallecano a 2-1 win over Granada at the Vallecas. The win lifted the Madrid side to 12th with a tally of 13 points from their 11 games. Meanwhile, Granada are 19th.

A Ruben Castro strike was enough for Real Betis to help them to a 1-0 win over Malaga at Rosaleda. The newly-promoted outfit has moved to 11th in the league standings as a consequence of their narrow win.

Inaki Williams scored a splendid goal for Athletic Bilbao against Espanyol and Raul Garcia snatched all three points for the Basques with his goal in the second half. Hernan Perez was on the scoresheet for the Catalans.

Neymar and Luis Suarez were in spectacular form for Barcelona as they defeated Villarreal 3-0 at the Camp Nou on Sunday. The Brazil international grabbed a brace from the encounter, including a breathtaking strike late in the second half when he received a pass from Suarez, looped the ball over his head, pirouetted 180 degrees and volleyed the ball past the hapless Villarreal goalkeeper. The win moved the Catalans to the top of the league standings.

Antoine Griezmann continued his heroics for Atletico Madrid as he grabbed a late winner against Sporting Gijon at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday.

Real Madrid suffered their first defeat of the season as they lost 3-2 to Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Sergio Ramos and James Rodriguez scored the goals for Los Blancos, while Ciro Immobile, Fernando Llorente and Ever Banega were on the scoresheet for the hosts. The defeat for Rafael Benitez’s men has made Barcelona the league leaders.
