Nabil El Zhar set the turnaround in motion with a thumping back-post header and it was Oscar Rodriguez who capitalised on Gerard Pique's awful error before Barca had been given time to take stock.

LaLiga champions FC Barcelona suffered their first defeat of the season, after going down 2-1 to Leganes on Wednesday evening.

Brazil superstar Philippe Coutinho opened scoring for the Catalans in the 12th minute of the encounter after being assisted by Lionel Messi. Coutinho stopped the ball and flicked it straight up. He used his right boot to rip a volley into the far post netting, beating Leganes goalie Ivan Cuellar.

Barcelona held the advantage through the half before the home squad came roaring back.

Sevilla were relentless throughout the first half and after Franco Vazquez hit the bar, striker Wissam Ben Yedder scored in the 39th minute for his sixth goal in a week to stun Real, who suffered their first loss under manager Julen Lopetegu.

The first installment of a planned three-part series, Vader Immortal: Episode I was written and executive produced by David S. Goyer , the writer behind Batman Begins , Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , and the upcoming Masters of the Universe .

Nabil El Zhar set the turnaround in motion with a thumping back-post header soon after half-time and it was Rodriguez who capitalised on Gerard Pique's awful error before Barca had been given time to take stock. Jonathan Silva dribbled down the right flank before sending a cross through the Barcelona Box.

Three minutes later, the turnaround was complete through Rodriguez, who profited from a defensive error from Pique to slot past Ter Stegen to put the hosts ahead. Pique attempted to clear the cross but, off balance, succeeded only in slicing it to Oscar, who slammed it into the net.

"It's not a result that can be explained", Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde told reporters.

"Sometimes it's hard to explain what happens in a game".

Barcelona face Athletic Bilbao on Saturday and then Tottenham at Wembley in the Champions League four days later but one point from two of La Liga's lesser opponents is a worry.
