Malaga defeated Celta Vigo 2-1 to claim their first La Liga victory of the season and climb off the bottom of the table.

Malaga collected just one point from their first nine matches but took the lead in first-half injury time through Adrian Gonzalez.

Iago Aspas looked like he might have secured a point for Celta Vigo when he equalised in the 76th minute but seven minutes later, Recio scored the winner from the penalty spot after Gustavo Cabral handled in the area.

Girona claimed a stunning 2-1 victory over Real Madrid to deal a major blow to the champions’ hopes of retaining their title.

This was no smash-and-grab raid either, with Girona twice hitting the post in the first half and unlucky to be behind to an Isco breakaway goal.

They turned the tables with two goals in four minutes early in the second half from Cristhian Stuani and Portu and withstood the inevitable Real salvo with relative comfort.

Eibar fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Levante. Jose Luis Morales gave the visitors the lead in the 35th minute, and two minutes later they doubled their advantage through Enis Bardhi.

But Eibar gave themselves a lifeline six minutes after the break with a goal from Anaitz Arbilla and Charles earned the strugglers what could prove to be a very valuable point with the equaliser in the 74th minute.

Getafe produced a superb second-half performance to come from behind and beat Real Sociedad 2-1 at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The visitors took the lead after just five minutes when Adnan Januzaj picked up the ball just inside his own half and was allowed to advance unchallenged before playing a perfectly-weighted ball to Mikel Oyarzabal, who fired a first-time finish into the bottom corner.

Getafe offered little going forward in the first half but were a different side after the interval and deservedly equalised in the 78th minute as Francisco Portillo’s superb pass allowed fellow substitute Angel Rodriguez to control on his chest before firing home.

And the home side secured all three points five minutes from time when Inigo Martinez brought down Rodriguez in the area and Jorge Molina scored from the spot.
