Deportivo stay in sixth spot in the table after a 0-0 draw at Málaga on Sunday. The home side dominated the first half, with Aranzubia having to save from Fernando, Benachour and Duda, and Depor's only real reply came when Iván González almost put through his own net, Stepanov clearing the ball off the line with the keeper beaten. The Galicians were left with ten men shortly before the break after Pablo Alvarez picked up two rigorous bookings, but although Duda hit the post after the restart, the visitors held on for a valuable point.
