Villarreal were denied the chance to move up to fifth in La Liga after being held to a 1-1 draw by Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.
Enes Unal’s 30th-minute strike appeared to be sending Villarreal above Sevilla in the table, but Florin Andone struck for Deportivo six minutes from time.
Athletic Bilbao climbed to eighth with a 2-0 win over Alaves, who stay in the relegation zone. Xabier Etxeita opened the scoring after eight minutes for Bilbao, and Aritz Aduriz sealed the win with a second-half penalty.
Gabriel Pires scored a second-half winner as Leganes secured a 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad. Pires struck from a Javier Eraso free-kick with 15 minutes remaining to secure all three points for the hosts at the Municipal de Butarque Stadium.
The victory moves Leganes ahead of Sociedad and up to eighth in the table.
