While Osasuna frustrated RCD Espanyol in their last away match in La Liga as they drew 1-1 in a game which was played on May 8.

“There’s a feeling of sadness as we didn’t get the win, but we can’t berate ourselves about the performance,” Bilbao manager Marcelino said after their clash with Valencia.
"The only thing we can be sad about is the result. We gave our all and outplayed our opponents. They didn’t even have half a chance at goal. When you draw at home, you’re halfway to what you want.
"Today I think the team played very well. We had more chances than when we did against Atlético Madrid, but that’s football," he continued.
“Whenever you get a point it’s not bad. What we wanted was to win, but we are still in the fight for Europe. It’s not as upsetting as what a loss would’ve been.”
