Osasuna clocked up their best win of the season, beating Málaga 3-0 to climb out of the relegation spots and up seven places to eleventh. The result was never in doubt as from the second minute when Nekounam fired in a penalty after Manu Torres brought down Juanfran. Soon afterwards Galatto had to save from Juanfran, and later in the first half Nekounam's fellow Iranian countryman Masoud turned in the second after Juanfran laid back Monreal's cross. Aranda made it three early in the second half after Masoud headed a Soriano corner goalwards, and it was already over.
