Schar gets the point for Deportivo

Fabian Schar volleyed in an equaliser to earn Deportivo La Coruna a point in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Athletic Bilbao at the Riazor.
Both sides were in need of points given their struggles in LaLiga this season and Bilbao, without a win in four matches ahead of kick-off, went ahead when skipper Markel Susaeta fired in after racing on to Aritz Aduriz's clever flick in the 16th minute.
Depor, who sit just outside the relegation zone, had lost their last two in the league but they went in level at half-time thanks to Adrian Lopez's 35th-minute stabbed finish following Pedro Mosquera's volley across goal.
Inaki Williams - who struck a post late on - restored Bilbao's lead on the hour, tucking the ball into the bottom left corner after racing through on goal.
But the hosts were not to be denied a share of the spoils and Switzerland defender Schar turned the ball in from close range following a corner with 14 minutes left to play.
