Osasuna restored some pride after their 8-0 humiliation in the Nou Camp, a 0-0 draw against Sevilla on Tuesday night taking them back up to tenth pending the rest of the midweek games. The Pamplona based side wanted to give their fans something to cheer, and visiting keeper Javi Varas was the busiest man on the park early on, with saves from Cejudo, Rubén, and a dangerous Lamah free kick which he pushed over the bar. Andrés kept his place in the Osasuna goal despite the hammering at the weekend, and he did well to save from Jesús Navas, Cáceres and Spahic before the break. Navas shot wide when he should have scored after the restart, and the two keepers made first class saves from Nino and Manu later on. The locals felt themselves unlucky not to have a penalty when Perotti handled in the area, and Lamah and Cejudo went close near the end. A good result for Mendilibar even so, and his team stay three points behind the Andalusians, who are now third in the table.
