Osasuna draw a blank with Malaga; Valencia beat Espanyol 2-1
Osasuna 0 – Malaga 0 (La Liga, November 17, 2012) Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero salvaged a point for visiting Malaga with key saves, including stopping Osasuna forward Alvaro Cejudo one-on-one seven minutes from time.
Valencia 2 – Espanyol 1 (La Liga, November 17, 2012) The game looked set to end in a draw after Espanyol striker Samuele Longo scored in the 31st minute to cancel out Jonathan Viera’s 16th minute opener for the hosts. But Espanyol defender Hector Moreno was penalised for blocking a cross in the area with his arms, and Roberto Soldado stroked in the spot kick to give Valencia the win.
