MADRID (AP) — Arnaut Danjuma scored five minutes into stoppage time as Villarreal salvaged a 3-3 draw against Cádiz in the Spanish league on Tuesday.
Danjuma got the equalizer with a shot from inside the area to keep Unai Emery’s team from losing its third league match in a row.
Anthony “Choco” Lozano scored a hat trick for Cádiz, whose winless streak reached six matches.
Lozano scored twice in the first half and once after halftime to give Cádiz a two-goal lead until Boulaye Dia pulled the hosts closer in the 80th minute. Pau Torres had evened the match for Villarreal in the first half.
Alavés edged Elche 1-0 at home to win its second consecutive match and leave the relegation zone.
Mamadou Loum scored the winner early in the second half.
Alavés had lost five in a row to start the season before beating defending champion Atlético Madrid and picking up some momentum. It moved to 16th place with Tuesday’s victory, two points from the relegation zone.
It was the second loss in three matches for Elche, which sits 15th in the standings.
On Wednesday, Barcelona will try to rebound from the home loss to Real Madrid in the “clásico” when it visits Radamel Falcão’s Rayo Vallecano, which has won all of its four matches at home this season. Madrid can take the league lead from Sociedad with a home win against Osasuna.
