Venezuelan forward Solomon Rondon scored twice as Malaga beat Rayo Vallecano 4-2 on Thursday to move into fifth position in La Liga, level on 44 points with Levante and just three behind third-placed Valencia.
However, Rondon got a goal in either half, first with a header and then with a great piece of finishing to put the home side ahead.
Enzo Maresca made it 3-1 on 70 minutes with his first touch, scoring a header from a pinpoint Jesus Gamez cross.
However, two minutes later, another Malaga subsitute, Duda, scored when he hit a left footed shot from 30 yards to round of a deserved win for the side from the Costa del Sol.
Spanish international Jesus Navas got the opener in the first-half for the visitors before Manu del Moral hit a second-half double.
