Leganés and Athletic Bilbao drew 0-0 in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off, the result leaving the visitors still a point below the European spots, and their hosts just five points above the drop zone. Machís got free twice before the interval, shooting just wide the first time, and bringing a good save out of Iraizoz after that, and Raúl García got the ball in the net at the other end only to be pulled up for a previous foul. After the restart Balenziaga almost caught out Champagne with a long shot, but Mantovani headed against the upright, and Iraizoz had to save again from Adrián Marín near the end.
