Deportivo clocked up their first win of the new campaign, beating last week's co-leaders Málaga 1-0 on Sunday evening. Ex Depor keeper Munúa made some important saves on his return to the Riazor, in particular from a close range Pablo Alvarez header. But he could do nothing to stop Filipe's pile-driver which flew over his head in to the far corner of the net with ten minutes to go. The visitors could have saved a point though had Baha not missed an open goal in injury time.
