The second match on Saturday between regional neighbours Betis and Málaga ended 0-0, the only consolation for the two sides being that the locals had finally put an end to a run of six defeats in a row, and the visitors had picked up another point to defend their sixth place. Betis had the better of the first half without creating any clear cut chances, with Rubén Castro, Beñat and Pozuelo all trying their luck from long range. Málaga's first shots at goal didn't come until after the restart, Rondón heading straight at Castro after getting on the end of a Monreal cross, and the keeper turning a long effort from ex Betis winger Joaquín round the post. Pozuelo and Castro replied for Pepe Mel's side later on, but this one was always a banker's favourite for a no-score draw.
