Valencia are now two points off the European spots after they won 0-1 at Osasuna in the last game of Saturday evening, a great start for new coach Ernesto Valverde in his first match in charge after taking over this week from Pellegrino. The Ches had not won away from home all season in the league, and their track record in Pamplona was also poor, with only one win in their last eight visits. The locals were looking to build on their run of four matches without defeat after a shaky start to the season, and Raoul Loe went close early on. The visitors replied with efforts from Soldado, Tino Costa and Feghouli shortly before the break, but soon after the restart make-shift left back Guardado did well to clear an Arribas header off the line with the keeper beaten. A few minutes later Soldado volleyed home what was to prove the winner after Piatti's cross came back off the far post, and although Oier put a good chance over the top and Lamah brought a good save out of Diego Alves, local keeper Andrés had to be on his toes to prevent the Spanish international striker from adding to the lead near the end.
