Villarreal and Espanyol stumble

Villarreal CF and RCD Espanyol passed up the chance to move second and fourth respectively in the Liga after neither could claim three points from away matches on Sunday.

Villarreal CF missed the chance to return to second place in the Liga after a 1-1 draw at Real Sporting de Gijón, while a heavy away reverse prevented RCD Espanyol from rising to fourth.

FC Barcelona's 5-0 victory against Sevilla FC on Saturday meant the Yellow Submarine needed a four-goal triumph to reclaim second spot and they appeared to be sinking as soon as Diego Castro converted a 69th-minute penalty for Gijón. Gonzalo's red card seven minutes later added to the struggle but Juan Carlos Garrido's charges dug deep and snatched a point thanks to Giuseppe Rossi's 94th-minute spot kick.

Espanyol were hoping to leapfrog Valencia CF, who were held 1-1 by Real Zaragoza yesterday, but they became RC Deportivo La Coruña's first victims this term as Adrián, Alberto Lopo and Diego Colotto secured the hosts a 3-0 success. Club Atlético de Madrid are sixth despite drawing 1-1 with UD Almería, while two rungs lower are Athletic Club, who downed Getafe CF 3-0. Elsewhere, there were victories for Real Sociedad de Fútbol, 2-1 at Málaga CF, and Real Racing Club, who beat CA Osasuna 4-1.
