Osasuna win to edge away from drop
Osasuna beat Getafe 2-0 at home on Sunday to provisionally move five points from the Spanish league’s relegation zone.
Oriol Riera opened the scoring in the sixth minute when Francisco Silva spotted his run behind Getafe’s disjointed defense with a long pass that the striker expertly used one touch to lift over goalkeeper Miguel Moya.
Roberto Torres capped the win on the break with two minutes to play.
The closest Getafe came to scoring was Angel Lafita’s header off the upright in the 34th.
Getafe remained winless in eight rounds.
Later, Barcelona visit Sevilla looking for a win that would push the defending champions into a three-way tie for the league lead with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
