Osasuna made it three wins on the trot after they beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1, and they move above their regional neighbours in the table. Masoud started things off midway through the first half, intercepting a shot from Monreal which was going wide to poke the ball past Gorka. Three minutes later though Athletic were level when Aitor Ocio got above the defence to head Yeste's free kick in to the net.

Five minutes after the restart though the visitors were left with ten men when Ocio was sent off for a foul on Masoud. And with ten minutes to go Sergio got behind the defence to head home Masoud's corner and take his side five points above the drop zone. After ending the first half of the season at the bottom of the table, Camacho's team have the third best record since then, only bettered by Barcelona and Real Madrid.
