Barca Held at Malaga, Sevilla Move Joint Top

Barcelona dropped points for the first time under Luis Enrique as Malaga forced the visitors to a goalless draw.

The draw ended Barca’s 100 per cent winning start to the La Liga campaign after recording maximum points in their first four matches scoring 11 goals.

Despite fielding a front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Pedro; the Catalans failed to register a shot on target.

They were lucky not to have conceded their first goal of the season, when goalkeeper Claudio Bravo tipped Luis Alberto’s free-kick onto the post.

Barca remain top of the La Liga table on goal difference ahead of Sevilla.

Sevilla moved joint top of the Primera Division table with Barcelona after a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad.

Barcelona loanee, Gerard Deulofeu, scored the only goal of the match in the 18th minute via a superb volley to help Sevilla record their fourth consecutive win.

Eibar drew 1-1 at home to Villareal. The hosts’ captain Mikel Arraubarrena struck his first goal of the season after nine minutes.

Villarreal sprung back to life in the second-half and drew level courtesy of a superb goal by Gerard Moreno.

Ruben Garcia’s solo goal helped Levante pick up their first win at Grenada’s Nuevo Los carmenes.

Rayo Vallecano came from behind to beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 at home. Aritz Aduriz scored from close range to hand Athletic the lead in the 20th minute. Leo Baptistao leveled in the 29th minute and then scored the match-winner in the 89th minute.

Joao Miranda’s second-half header made the difference as Atletico Madrid beat Almeria 1-0.
