Forward Antoine Griezmann nodded a third in the 56th minute, Gonzalo Castro finished off a sweeping break in the 82nd and substitute Haris Seferovic helped himself to a goal two minutes from time as the visitors crumbled.

San Sebastian-based Sociedad have 17 points, two behind sixth-placed Getafe, while Pamplona club Osasuna are mired in 16th spot, a point above the relegation places.

Sevilla’s erratic form continued when they lost 1-0 at home to RC Celta de Vigo after a howler by goalkeeper Beto allowed Alex Lopez to score and they remain 11th on 13 points.

Promoted UD Almeria’s 1-0 victory against visiting Real Valladolid, the south coast club’s second win of the campaign, lifted them above Rayo on goal difference with nine points.
