Malaga 3-2 Deportivo: Borja Baston wins it for hosts in dramatic style

Borja Baston ended his goal drought to give Malaga a superb comeback win over Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday afternoon. Malaga, who did sit bottom, came from behind to beat Depor in a five-goal thriller at La Rosaleda. Roberto Rosales opened the scoring for the home side, making the most of some slack marking from a corner to vollet home, before former Arsenal man Lucas Perez levelled with a back-post header. Defender Fabian Schar then gave the Galician side the lead shortly after the break, rounding off a swift counter-attacking move….

Villarreal 2-0 Malaga: Super Sub Sansone

On Sunday evening, substitute Nicola Sansone stole the show by scoring both goals in a 2-0 home win over Malaga. Mashed in with these two goals from super sub Sansone was a hat trick from in-form Cedric Bakambu; each correctly judged offside. Had these three goals stood, it would have propelled Bakambu up the goal scoring charts to sit just one behind Lionel Messi with 11. The Congolese striker has to wait however and still sits in third place with eight goals form ten games in La Liga. Having come on…
