Malaga were 1-0 winners at Real Zaragoza thanks to a second-half Nacho Camacho header and it was a similar story in the late game as Mallorca relied on Victor's 75th-minute effort to break down a stubborn Real Sociedad.
Both teams therefore maintained their unbeaten start to the season and moved a point clear of a chasing pack, headed by Barcelona, who could go past them tomorrow [Sunday].
Second-half goals from Iago Aspas and Mario Bermejo were enough to hand Celta Vigo their first win in the top flight for five years as 10-man Osasuna slipped to a third consecutive defeat.
Aspas opened the scoring on 69 minutes when he flicked home Augusto Fernandez's cross and when Alejandro Arribas was then dismissed for a second bookable offence Bermejo rolled in the second.
Promoted Deportivo La Coruna continued their promising start to life back in the top flight with a 1-1 home draw against a Getafe side who last weekend beat reigning champions Real Madrid.
Riki gave Depor a flying start when he netted after just six minutes against his former club, but Getafe hit back to claim a share of the points when Abdelaziz Barrada, the match winner against Madrid, equalised in the 26th minute.
