With eight games to go, the three relegation places look like being between five teams, although Osasuna are still not clear of danger after they were beaten 0-2 by Espanyol on Sunday. The Catalans had the better of the first half, with Andrés deflecting a Sergio García shot against the bar and Stuani heading just wide, although Kike Sola wasted a good opportunity to put the home side in front when he turned a De las Cuevas cross past the post with the goal at his mercy. Soon after the restart though Stuani steered another header just wide of the mark, and soon afterwards Javier Aguirre's side took the lead, Moreno's header from a Wakaso corner hitting Gato Silva before entering the net. Osasuna finally reacted, Casilla doing well to keep out De las Cuevas and Nino having a headed goal ruled out for a borderline offside and then firing a shot just wide of the upright. But with the game in time added on Petrov put Wakaso away down the left wing, and the Ghanaian winger rounded the advancing keeper to score a second which takes his side on to a fairly comfortable 39 points.
