A last minute headed goal from Sergio García gave Zaragoza a 2-2 draw at Osasuna, not quite enough though to take the Mañés back to fourth place after losing out to Valencia the day before.

The home side had not won in their Reyno de Navarra stadium since the halfway stage of the season, but with UEFA Cup semi-final matches against Sevilla either side of this game, Cuco Ziganda put out a much changed line-up. Even so they started well, Webó bringing a good save out of César before Juanlu volleyed them in to the lead after Sergio could only head back Valdo's cross.

A few minutes later though Zaragoza equalised after Aimar's free kick took a slight deflection off a defender to creep inside Ricardo's near post. The keeper pushed out a shot from Piqué and saved another Aimar free kick, and D'Alessandro shot over the top a few minutes later. But the best chance of the rest of the first half fell to Juanlu, who fired another shot just over the crossbar shortly before the break.

The locals came out again strongly after the restart, Valdo testing César a couple of times before beating the keeper with an angled shot from the edge of the area. Juanlu and Nekounam could have increased the lead, but with the game already in injury time substitute Sergio García got on the end of Zapater's long free kick to head the ball back over Ricardo and in to the net.
