Malaga 1 – Rayo Vallecano 2 (La Liga, November 3, 2012) Rayo started strong and Piti opened the scoring 11 minutes in after Leonardo Carrilho crossed for him to tap home. Malaga defender Martin Demichelis turned Joaquin Sanchez’s free kick into the net with a header to level four minutes after the restart. But the game swung back in Rayo’s favor as Piti fired in another pass from Leonardo from the edge of the box in the 60th to break his team’s run of three away losses.
