Gimnastic lost further ground on the leaders though after they were beaten 1-2 by Elche later in the evening. David Vidal's side move above the Catalans in the table as a result.

Cádiz also drop down the table after a 1-2 defeat against Eibar, Zurutuza scoring the winner for the Basque side in the last minute. Eibar's neighbours Alavés also won in the last minute, Aganzo's goal giving them a 2-3 victory at Salamanca. It was their first victory of the season, and they move above their opponents out of the relegation spots. Finally Tenerife and Córdoba drew 0-0 in the last game of the evening, leaving both safely in the middle of the field. (07.10.07)

Málaga's great start to the season continues, and they extended their winning run to seven games after beating Las Palmas 2-0. Baha and Iván Rosado got the goals in the second half to leave the Canary Islanders further down in the drop zone. Sporting Gijón stay in second place though after a 2-3 victory at Hércules. The Asturians twice took the lead before Canella got the winner near the end. And Real Sociedad are up to fifth pending Sunday's games after a 1-0 win over bottom club Albacete, Garitano getting the only goal after the restart.

Celta moved up into the top half of the table after beating Xerez 3-1.

The other two matches on Saturday ended all square, Sevilla Atlético coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Poli Ejido, and Granada 74 and Castellón both scoring in the last five minutes to make it 1-1 at the finish.
