David Moyes: Real Sociedad held by struggling Deportivo

Real Sociedad v Deportivo La Coruna

David Moyes's Real Sociedad were forced to settle for a point against struggling Deportivo La Coruna despite a wonder goal by Chory Castro.

Uruguay midfielder Castro lashed home a sublime angled volley from Sergio Canales' long cross to make it 2-1.

But Sociedad were unable to hang on, Toche heading the visitors level.

Earlier, Sociedad's Xabi Prieto scored from the spot after Jose Rodriguez had handled, only for Lucas Perez to equalise with another penalty.

Sociedad are 11th in La Liga, while Deportivo climb three places to 15th.

Elsewhere, Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio suffered a serious injury during a 1-1 draw at Getafe.

The Argentine was running after the ball when his left ankle buckled and appeared to snap.

Villarreal boss Marcelino Garcia said: "What has happened to him is an authentic tragedy. The images are chilling."

Villarreal remain in sixth place, 11 points behind Sevilla in fifth.

Sergio Garcia scored as Espanyol overcame Athletic Bilbao 1-0 to leapfrog the Basque club into eighth place in the table.

Bottom club Cordoba moved a step closer to relegation after a 2-0 home defeat to Elche.

Cordoba are nine points from safety with seven games left.

On Monday, Valencia can move to within one point of third-placed Atletico Madrid with a home win over Levante.
