Visitors Osasuna enjoyed the better of the play and created more goalscoring chances, with both Oriol Riera and Manuel Ortiz going close in the opening period.

But it was Elche who were presented with a golden opportunity to claim all three points when Manuel del Moral was brought down by Emiliano Armenteros in the penalty area on 66 minutes.

Ferran Corominas stepped up but his spot kick sailed over the bar and the spoils were shared.

The draw leaves both sides five points off the relegation zone - Elche in 12th and Osasuna in 13th - ahead of the rest of the weekend's action.
