"It's rare that after four games the boss has been so tough and the team have not raised themselves," Ramos told reporters, referring to earlier comments the Portuguese coach had made about his team. "The moment has arrived for us to look at ourselves and say we can give more, that we should improve and change our attitude."
FC Barcelona has made a great start to the league season with two wins away to Osasuna and Getafe, stadiums where the team lost last year. And a win away to Getafe is a lucky omen; a victory there has always been followed by Barça taking the league title .
Former Barcelona and Real player Saviola joined Malaga on transfer deadline day two weeks ago and on his first start for the side burst through on to Isco's pass to score in the 27th minute. Saviola, known as 'El Conejo' (the rabbit), then laid on Joaquin to score the second after Levante had grabbed an equaliser against the run of play when Michel ran the length of the pitch to score just after halftime. Malaga lost defender Sergio Sanchez to a red card near the end but Francisco Portillo made sure of the points with a volley in time added on.
Valencia earned their first La Liga victory at the fourth time of asking after easing past newly-promoted Celta Vigo 2-1 at the Mestalla. Sofiane Feghouli gave Valencia an early lead and although Celta equalised soon after through Michael Krohn-Delhi, the hosts claimed the points thanks to Aly Cissokho's 50th-minute winner.
Espanyol had stormed ahead in the first half with goals from Javi Lopez and Joan Verdu. Bilbao started their fightback when Aritz Aduriz headed home in the 56th but, after Llorente levelled, Samuele Longo sprinted clear to net a third for the hosts with 10 minutes remaining. Longo was sent off for a second bookable offence as he celebrated with Espanyol fans in the stands, and Aduriz bagged his second goal with a spectacular volley soon after to earn a point for Bilbao.
