    • 90+6' FULL TIME: Osasuna 1-0 Valencia. A great win for the team from Pamplona who move out of the relegation zone. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+5' Time is up and the home fans are ready to celebrate.
    • 90+4' Ricardo becomes booking number nine for timewasting.
    • 90+4' Joaquin goes into the book - the eighth player cautioned.
    • 90+3' Mata loses his head and is lucky he doesn't connect with a kick. The free-kick goes in his favour but Mathieu is then pulled up for a handball.
    • 90+2' Osasuna are bidding to run down the clock near the corner flag.
    • 90+1' Four minutes of stoppage time to be played.
    • 90' One last change as Sola is off for Josetxo.
    • 89' Mata is furious when he's denied a free-kick and he's booked for dissent.
    • 88' The home fans are simply desperate for this game to end and Camunas manages to break. He's had a good game tonight.
    • 85' Ricardo Costa is the latest name in the referee's notebook.
    • 84' Soriano has already picked up a yellow card for an untidy challenge.
    • 83' Camunas encroaches on goal and forces a save out of Guaita.
    • 83' Camunas hammers a cross behind the goal - at least the ball is at the right end of the field for them.
    • 82' Fernando Soriano comes on to replace for Cejudo.
    • 81' Stankevicius is booked for a poorly-timed challenge.
    • 80' Pablo Hernandes is on for Miguel.
    • 79' Mata belts over the top after a poor clearance by Nelson. A chance for the forward.
    • 77' Aduriz is brought down and Nekounam is rightly shown the yellow card.
    • 76' Miguel overhits a cross which is a waste of a promising situation.
    • 74' Camunas gets in a challenge and lashes the ball into the crowd. Backs against the wall for the final 15 minutes.
    • 73' It looks like Osasuna are going to be defending for much of the remainder of the match. This would be a big three points for them.
    • 72' Valencia have the ball to the shrill of whistles from the fans. Their build-up has been very lethargic for much of the encounter.
    • 69' Aduriz is on for Jonas, who gave the ball away in the lead-up to the goal.
    • 68' Javad Nekounam tussles with Miguel inside the area but there's no question of a spot-kick.
    • 67' Cejudo tries his luck again but is less effective this time.
    • 66' A substitution for the hosts as the burly Damia comes on for Calleja.
    • 64' A change for Valencia - Albelda is off for Ever Banega.
    • 62' A hopeful penalty shout for a push by Mathieu inside the box is rightly turned down by the referee.
    • 60' Cejudo, who ran to the TV camera, will claim it and certainly enjoyed the moment.
    • 59' GOAL! The deadlock is finally broken and it's an own goal by Marius Stankevicius - the ball deflects off the defender following a long-range strike by Cejudo. It comes off his back and leaves Guaita with no chance.
    • 58' The visitors have suddenly sprung into life as Mathieu crosses from the left but there's nobody there to apply the finishing touch.
    • 57' Joaquin latches onto a pass by Soldado, by making up loads of ground to get inside the box but can only screw his finish wide. Good effort from the skipper.
    • 56' And now Guaita is yellow carded for time wasting!
    • 55' Calleja's free-kick swerves towards goal but dips well wide.
    • 55' Calleja quickly follows him into the book for taking the free-kick too quickly!
    • 54' Albelda picks up the first yellow card of the game for a foul on Sola.
    • 53' A point wouldn't be a disaster for the hosts but they need to up their game if they're going to break this experienced Valencia side down.
    • 52' Guaita catches another aimless centre - Osasuna must do better.
    • 50' Sergio defends a long ball by Mata impressively, still very low-key here.
    • 49' Monreal hits a woeful cross straight into the grateful arms of Guaita.
    • 47' The team from Pamplona haven't started the second period with the same zest as the first.
    • 46' The second half is underway with Valencia kicking us off.
    • 45+3' HALF TIME: Osasuna 0-0 Valencia. Please join us for the second half.
    • 45+2' Nelson fires in his second dreadful attempt of the half.
    • 45+2' Yet another corner for the hosts is forced by Sola.
    • 45+1' Into first half stoppage time, there will be two extra minutes.
    • 44' Ricardo shows no ill effects by smashing away a risky back-pass by Francisco Punal with Soldado lurking.
    • 42' Valencia are trying to end the half on a high. Miguel is getting forward to link up with the attack.
    • 41' The former Manchester United keeper is back on his feet and able to continue.
    • 40' Juan Mata's cross leads to Soldado sliding in to trip Ricardo, who is crunched against a post. The keeper needs treatment.
    • 39' A clear-cut offside call goes against Osasuna - can they rediscover some of their early vigour?
    • 37' Sola is just unable to meet a cross from the right - another half-chance.
    • 34' The corner falls to Monreal on the edge of the box and in the centre of goal but he snatches at his shot and it deflects wide for a throw-in.
    • 33' Miguel clears when Alvaro Cejudo is poised to get a shot in. Corner.
    • 32' A weak shot from Roberto Soldado goes straight through to Ricardo.
    • 29' A decision goes against the strugglers and provokes fury from the terraces. Sola can't believe he's been penalised and replays show he's right.
    • 27' Valencia play keep-ball and end up going all the way back to Guaita, to whistles from the crowd.
    • 25' Miguel mops up from the other full-back slot as his team start to come into things a little more.
    • 23' Jeremy Mathieu gets in a good defensive header and Valencia build a counter-attack.
    • 21' Albelda is punished for a heavy challenge in midfield but there's no yellow card issued.
    • 20' Nelson tries a ridiculously optimistic shot following another corner. Wasteful to say the least.
    • 20' The visitors have weathered the early storm but the crowd are still trying to gee up the men in red shirts.
    • 18' David Albelda has a shot in anger but it flies well over the bar.
    • 17' Valencia manage a bit of possession in the opposition half but they've been second best so far.
    • 15' From the flag-kick, Sergio dives to get in a header but it deflects wide.
    • 15' Osasuna win another corner to keep the pressure on.
    • 14' It's been a fast and furious start from the relegation-threatened hosts but they need to keep it up.
    • 12' Guaita makes another important stop to frustrate Javier Camunas, who had cut through the defence with ease and should've scored.
    • 11' A dangerous-looking raid from los Che comes to nothing in the end but shows they will be a threat.
    • 10' The sell-out crowd are getting behind their team and this promises to be a tough night for Valencia.
    • 9' Javier Calleja is unable to reach the ball at the far post with Guaita all at sea when trying to deal with a cross.
    • 8' Osasuna have dominated the early proceedings, another corner has failed to yield the goal they need to reward their fine start.
    • 7' Joaquin has a snap shot that fails to trouble Ricardo's goal.
    • 5' Lolo Toribio gets up well to head goalwards and force an astounding, flying save from Vicente Guaita.
    • 4' Valencia have been sluggish since the start but are starting to find their feet.
    • 2' Miguel picks up a knock but is back on his feet for Valencia.
    • 2' Kike Sola gets in a header from a Monreal cross and diverts it wide. An early chance for the home side.
    • 1' Underway and Osasuna are desperate for a win in their bid to beat the drop.
