Málaga 4-3 Deportivo La Coruña

Deportivo La Coruna suffered injury-time heartbreak for the second successive week as Javi Ontiveros settled a pulsating game with a long-range strike to snatch a 4-3 win for Malaga at La Rosaleda.
The Galicians conceded a goal two minutes into stoppage time to sink to a 3-2 defeat to Sevilla last Saturday and Ontiveros' moment of inspiration came at exactly the same time.
For Malaga, it was an excellent if not entirely deserved result after their backs-to-the-wall point at Barcelona last weekend.
The home side fell behind when Celso Borges tucked in a fourth-minute penalty after Federico Ricca hauled down Bruno Gama in the box.
Juande Ramos' side levelled with a spot-kick of their own after 20 minutes as Borges manhandled Michael Santos, who got up to convert it himself.
Sandro Ramirez's brilliant free-kick, which crashed in off the angle of post and crossbar, put Malaga in front five minutes before half-time and Santos added a third when he applied the finish to Pablo Fornals' cutback from the right.
Florin Andone pulled one back for Depor in the 72nd minute as his bullet header from Carles Gil's inswinging cross beat Carlos Kameni.
The Cameroonian goalkeeper, who was the hero at the Nou Camp last week, then fumbled Juanfran's cross and Borges deflected the ball in, as it seemed Depor would claim a deserved point.
But Ontiveros, who had come on for Santos in the 73rd minute, had other ideas.
He darted left to right past the challenges of Guilherme and Pedro Mosquera before smashing a curling effort beyond the dive of Przemyslaw Tyton.
