Sevilla 2-2 Rayo Vallecano

Three games ended with a 2-2 scoreline, but the most dramatic one must be Sevilla vs Vallecano.

The Seville club needed a 96th-minute equalizer from Youssef En-Nesyri to steal a point at home to Vallecano.

The visitors were ahead early, thanks to a close-range finish by Oscar Valentin. Alvaro Garcia doubled the lead with a superb chip inside the first 20 minutes.

After restarting, Sevilla claimed one back early when Djirbil Sow fired home, but it showed no sign of a comeback as Rayo held on for a crucial win away from home.

However, Sevilla were saved in the dying minute when En Nesyri pulled his signature move with a header to claim a point.

Granada 2-2 Barcelona

The defending champions have slipped to the worst possible start on their La Liga trip away to Granada.

Barca drew 2-2 at Granada and eventually dropped to third, behind rivals Real Madrid, a surprising factor this season, Girona.

Bryan Zaragoza put a brace for the host in the first half, but Lamine Yamal struck from close range to get Blaugranas back in the game before the break. Yamal became La Liga’s youngest scorer at 16 years and 87 days old.

Xavi’s side attempted another comeback, but they could only rescue a point when Sergi Roberto scored late in the game.

Granada’s goalkeeper, André Ferreira, had made a string of saves to preserve his team’s advantage, but Roberto equalized when he converted first time from Alejandro Balde’s cross in the 86th minute.

Atletico Madrid 2-1 Real Sociedad

Atlético Madrid are fourth on 19 points after Antoine Griezmann scored a late penalty to earn a 2-1 home win against Real Sociedad, in a match where VAR was again under the spotlight.

Real Madrid 4-0 Osasuna

Belling is back, and this time, he’s back for more!

Los Blancos’ summer record signing bagged a brace, while goals from Vini Jr. and Joselu secured all three points against Osasuna for Real Madrid, who go into the international break at the top of La Liga.

Real Madrid’s tenth win against Osasuna was their eighth in LaLiga. It’s safe to say that the Royal club put t in an outstanding performance at the Bernabéu, which was delighted with the four goals scored by Ancelotti’s side.

Belling now scored 10 goals in 10 games for Madrid

Valverde also had a great game, providing assists for the second and third goals. Real Madrid go into the international break as leaders in the Spanish top-flight.
