Osasuna and Valladolid drew 1-1 in the El Sadar stadium, a result which did neither of them much good in their fight to climb away from the lower reaches of the table. The match was dominated by the home side, who thought they should have had penalty early on when the referee ruled that a foul on Moha was outside of the area. However the visitors were playing a waiting game, and Aganzo opened the scoring five minutes before the break after a long pass by Colsa beat the offside trap, the young striker running on to score his fifth of the season despite being tripped by Yanguas.

Iván Rosado shot just wide after the break as Aguirre's men continued to push forward, but Aganzo should probably have scored his second of the night after Fernando Sales set him up on a rapid counter attack. The local manager brought on his young striker Brit to try and change things, and a couple of minutes later he won a free kick on the edge of the area which Mateo struck under the defensive wall to level the scores.

Visiting keepr Bizzarri had to save from Brit and Gancedo later on, but Valladolid substitute Pachón could have snatched a win in the closing minutes. In the end though they had to settle for a point each, leaving the Pamplona based side in seventeenth spot, a point above the relegation zone. Moré's team are only two points above them, but with several sides grouped together in mid-table they currently occupy twelfth position.
