Osasuna moved off the bottom of the table after a 2-1 victory over Elche on Friday evening! The Pamplona based side had lost all their first four games, but with a quarter of an hour on the clock Armenteros put them ahead with a shot in off the far post after a loose ball fell to him on the edge of the area. Andrés had to keep out shots from Carlos Sánchez and Boakye and a free kick from Edu Albácar before the break as the visitors fought back, but three minutes after the restart Oriol Riera made it two, beating Manu at the second attempt after the keeper saved his first shot. After that Javi Gracia's team contained their rivals until two minutes from the end, when Albácar got a late consolation from the penalty spot after Marc Bertrán blocked a cross with his arm inside the area. There was no time for the visitors to do any more however, and they ended the day level with their hosts in the table, still looking for that elusive first win.
