Osasuna ended the weekend back in the relegation spots, three points away from safety after losing 1-2 to Sporting Gijón. The defeat ended a run of six games without a loss for the Pamplona based team.

A victory would have taken Camacho's team above their opponents in the table, but two spectacular goals from Barral and Diego Castro gave the Asturians a two goal lead with less than twenty minutes gone.

Nekounam reduced the gap from the penalty spot a few minutes later after Barral blocked a free kick with his arm whilst standing in the defensive wall. But Barral had a goal disallowed for a previous foul after the restart, and Roberto had to make a couple of good saves to prevent a bigger scoreline.

The win ends Sporting's negative run of four defeats in a row, and they are heading for the record books after reaching this stage of the competition without a single draw.
