Deportivo took the lead when Joan Verdu scored from the penalty spot early on, but Recreativo equalised just after half-time through Beto, who collected his second booking for removing his shirt in the celebrations.
But Recre took the lead just three minutes later through Florent Sinama Pongolle. Riki thought he had salvaged a draw for Deportivo nine minutes from time, but the hosts bagged a winner two minutes from time when Martin Caceres headed home.
