Osasuna came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Valladolid and stay three points above their opponents in the table. Both sides had chances early on, Ricardo saving from Jonathan Sesma and Pandiani putting an effort over the top. But ten minutes before half time Alvaro Rubio headed the visitors into the lead from Kome's cross, and Jonathan Sesma put them two up soon after the restart after Llorente set him up.

Local coach Ziganda was up in the stands serving out a ban, but he give orders to bring on Dady, Héctor Font and then Carlos Vela. And it couldn't have worked out better, the Portuguese striker scoring twice in five minutes to save a point for his side, the first after Vela crossed in and the second after an assist from Font. The visitors dropped their defences, but in the end they were saved from a worse fate after Corrales was sent off for insulting the referee following a booking. The point was not enough though to take them out of the drop zone.
