Joel Campbell contributed three goals in 13 minutes off the bench for Real Betis, while Lucas Perez and Kelechi Nwakali featured as late substitutes in their respective games.
Campbell was playing his first competitive minutes after a lengthy injury in the summer. When he came on late in the second-half, Real Betis were already 4-0 down. However, he almost inspired the most dramatic of comebacks.
Two minutes after coming on, the Costa Rica winger scored, capitalising on a lazy pass by the Valencia defence. Then, one minute later, Campbell played a perfectly-timed through ball to Sanabria, who scored to make it 4-2.
Suddenly, the comeback was on, and the Arsenal man twisted and turned on the wing before his deflected cross fell to Tello, who put away a third.
Unfortunately, Valencia finally woke up and scored two in the last five minutes to make it 6-3, but Joel Campbell’s contribution was impressive.

Meanwhile, Lucas Perez came on as a late substitute for Deportivo against Eibar, but couldn’t break the deadlock in a 0-0 draw.
Kelechi Nwakali also played 15 minutes for VVV-Venlo against PSV, but by the time he came on Venlo were 4-2 down and with 10 men. He couldn’t do anything to stop the league leaders scoring a fifth goal and winning the match emphatically.
