Athletic Bilbao started off the weekend, and they move up to sixth pending Sunday's games after beating regional neighbours Osasuna 2-0. With less than a minute on the clock Yeste turned in Llorente's cross to give the locals the lead, and Llorente himself scored the second a few minutes later with a shot on the turn past Ricardo. Gurpegui and Llorente could have increased the lead after that, and with visiting strikers Pandiani and Aranda both out injured, their replacements hardly troubled keeper Iraizoz throughout the match.
