Fourth placed Osasuna are not going to give up their Champions League spot without a fight, and the Pamplona based side increased their lead over their nearest rival to five points after beating Cádiz 1-3. It was the locals who took the lead though when Lobos struck a free kick past Ricardo on the quarter hour mark, and the new signing brought a good save out of Ricardo soon afterwards. But ten minutes before the break Milosevic headed Delporte's cross wide of Armando, and two minutes later David López curled a free kick wide of the keeper, who burst into tears on camera as a result.

The Andalusians tried to fight back, Ricardo saving again from Medina before the interval and Estoyanoff and Medina both hitting the woodwork after the restart. Víctor Espárrago brought on striker Oli for a defender, but just three minutes later Medina was sent off for a second bookable offence when he tried to kick the ball out of Ricardo's hands. That effectively ended their challenge, and Raúl García wrapped things up with a shot from outside of the area in the final minutes. The defeat leaves Cádiz on the verge of the relegation spots, just clear of the bottom three thanks to a better goal difference than two of their rivals.
