Fifth placed Espanyol kept up the pressure on the Valencia and Villarreal after they beat struggling Zaragoza 4-0. Osvaldo headed the Catalans in to an early lead, but then had to be stretchered off minutes later with what looked like a serious groin injury. With half an hour on the clock Luis García made it two from the penalty spot after Diogo brought down Callejón in the area, and just three minutes later it was all over when young substitute Alvaro Vázquez ran on to score a third after Luis García intercepted the ball in midfield to set him up. Sinama-Pongolle, Gabi and Paredes all tried their luck for the visitors, but Alvaro hit the post before Luis García took advantage of another defensive mistake to gift a fourth goal to his namesake Sergio García.
