Osasuna virtually made sure of another season in the top flight after a 1-4 victory over Levante, their first win in eight games. The match turned in their favour in only the fifth minute when local keeper Molina was sent off for handling a shot from Soldado outside of the area. Cavallero came on for the sacrificed Zé María, but he could do nothing to stop Soldado from heading a David López free kick into the far corner of the net soon afterwards. And Soldado got his second of the night on the half hour mark, controlling a long ball from Puñal before firing an angled shot past the keeper.

Reggi was unlucky to have a penalty appeal turned down at the other end, but with the first half coming to an end Descarga pulled one back when he headed Riga's long free kick past Ricardo. However before the half time whistle the visitors were two up again, Raúl García volleying a David López cross past Cavallero, who deflected the ball in to his own net in the end after getting a hand to the shot.

Ricardo had to be at his best to keep out Reggi after the restart, but Soldado completed his hat-trick with a spectacular shot from inside his own half which caught Cavallero off his line. Levante were beaten, and it could have been worse had Valdo and Juanfran not failed to convert chances late on. The Valencia based side ended the weekend just three points clear of the drop zone, and they are still not safe.
