Getafe went top of the table with that win and Jose Bordalas' men now visit Real Sociedad, whose defeat to Valencia served to confirm that they are missing the support of their home fans. The side from San Sebastian has won just one and lost four of the eight home matches since football returned to Spain in empty stadiums in the middle of June, and on Saturday it will be without the injured Adnan Januzaj.

CHENGDU, China, Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- Xinjiang put on a defensive-minded game to best Shanghai 68-53 in the Women's Chinese Basketball Association (WCBA) league here on Wednesday.
The first 45 minutes were entertaining, but after the break Barca began to look fatigued. Ronald Koeman made several changes, bringing Francisco Trincao, Pedri and Miralem Pjanic into the action, while Sergino Dest made his debut for the injured Jordi Alba. Despite Trincao having a late shot saved, Barca didn't do enough to win, while Sevilla looked happy with a point.
Although it is still very early days, the signs are much better at FC Barcelona than many expected before the season started. Ronald Koeman's team has won its first two games with ease, netting a total of seven goals without conceding and the image on the pitch has been much better than the side that looked sad and tired during Quique Setien's time in charge.
The Schalke coach promised to find a way to develop strategies to revitalize his players' confidence.
