Osasuna moved to the top of the table after a last minute 3-2 win over neighbours Athletic Bilbao. The visitors had not won in seven games, but they hadn't lost in the Sadar stadium in their last eight visits either, and they took the lead when a header from Urzaiz came back off both posts to fall to Gurpegui for him to roll the ball back in to the net. Debutant Dañobeitia came close to heading a second, but a minute before the break a long shot from Raúl García caught Aranzubia off his line to level the scores.

An unhappy Aguirre made two changes at the break, and within a quarter of an hour his side were in front when Raúl García produced an excellent run down the right wing to set up Milosevic. Llorente came on for the visitors and soon afterwards headed against the woodwork, and his side equalised minutes later in a comedy of errors, Ricardo failing to clear a long punt from Iraola and Clavero only succeeding in kicking the ball up into his own net, referee Turienzo Alvarez deciding that it had crossed the line before the defence finally got it away.

But with the game already in injury time Aranzubia could only palm away Valdo's effort, and Webó followed up to find the net and keep up his side's 100% home record. The defeat leaves Athletic at the foot of the table after their worst ever start to a season, and Mendilibar is already looking like the first managerial casualty of the season.
