Spain round-up: Late strikes sink Barcelona

FC Barcelona lost 2-0 at RC Deportivo La Coruña, while Villarreal CF earned a rare victory.



Late drama



Clever dummy



Fourth place

Late goal
Earlier, Villarreal hauled their way out of the bottom four in the Primera División with a 1-0 win against Sevilla FC. It took a goal just a minute from time to earn Villarreal only their second victory of the season in a fiercely contested match at the El Madrigal stadium.

Red card
The game looked to be heading for a goalless draw when Villarreal defender Sergio Ballesteros was dismissed three minutes from time, but Sevilla failed to make the most of their man advantage and conceded an 89th-minute goal, a volley from Brazilian defender Juliano Belletti.
