Osasuna consolidated seventh spot with a 2-1 victory over Betis on Sunday, a result which leaves Pepe Mel's job hanging by a thread. After only picking up one point from their last nine games, Mel lined up with five at the back, but his side could have gone ahead early on when Salva Sevilla rattled the woodwork from a free kick. Lamah saw his header deflected round the post though, and six minutes before the break Miguel Flaño got behind the defence to head Cejudo's corner past Casto. Mel replaced a defender with striker Rubén Castro at half time, and local keeper Andrés had to be at his best to save from Cañas, Santa Cruz and Castro before the substitute got on the end of a Jonathan Pereira cross to equalise with ten minutes to go. But even though Castro hit the bar and Pereira, Beñat and Santa Cruz brought further saves out of Andrés after that, it was the home side who came away with the spoils when Nekounam fired home a free kick in the third minute of time added on.
