Deportivo La Coruna moved to the top of La Liga courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Villarreal.
The majority of those draped in blue and white in the Estadio Riazor were left delighted by an accomplished Depor display.
Defender Joan Capdevila was the surprise hero as he notched both goals in Saturday's only top flight fixture.
The accomplished stopper struck after only four minutes and thereafter the home side remained very much in control.
However, chasing a slender lead, Villarreal caused the odd moment of panic before Capdevila capped a fine personal display with his second in the 68th minute.
While Depor now take pride of place at the top of the table, Villarreal have slumped to 16th having taken just one point thus far.
