0-1. 25. Morales. Got on the end of Delporte cross to turn ball past Notario.

Third placed Sevilla were surprisingly beaten 0-1 by Osasuna on Saturday evening, a result which could leave them out of the Champions League spots by the end of the weekend. The last time the Pamplona based side won in the Sánchez Pizjuan stadium was nine years ago when TV commentator Michael Robinson was one of the scorers, but they started well and took the lead when Morales got on the end of Delporte's cross to beat Notario midway through the first half. Up to that point the only action worthy of mention was a bust up between the players after a heavy tackle by Pablo García on Baptista, sparking fears of a repeat of last season's game which ended in a near riot. Things calmed down though, and the visitors held on without too many problems to the break.

Caparrós put on an extra forward for the second half, but the first opportunity fell to Webó who tested Notario with a long shot. The local keeper almost gave away a silly goal soon afterwards when he tried to dribble round Moha in his own area, and Milosevic could have scored as well when he went close with a header. Sevilla didn't get going though until the last quarter of an hour or so, when Baptista had a first header cleared off the line by a defender and a second caught by Elía. It was too little too late though, and Javier Aguirre's side had picked up their second victory in a row to move thirteen points clear of the drop zone pending Sunday's games.
