Malaga beat Osasuna 1-0 in La Liga this evening thanks to Julio Baptista's strike in the 93rd minute.

Malaga left it left to overcome Osasuna 1-0 at La Rosaleda in La Liga this evening.

Julio Baptista's stoppage-time winner was enough to give the home side the three points their play deserved against their stubborn opponents.

The Andalusian outfit were looking to bounce back following their Champions League exit at the hands of Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, but they were unable to breach the Osasuna defence until Baptista stuck in the 93rd minute.

The home side started brightly and had a clear sight of goal early in the game but Baptista sliced at fresh air with the goal at his mercy after six minutes.

Javier Saviola nearly gave Manuel Pellegrini's side the lead on 38 minutes when he beat the offside trap, but his side-footed finish could only find the foot of the post.

Malaga struggled to create anything clear-cut after the break, with the visitors seemingly content to keep the point they started with.

Baptista and Joaquin tried to grab the winner late on, but both efforts were straight at Los Rojillos keeper Andres Fernandez.

The game looked to be petering out for a frustrating draw for Pellegrini's men until Baptista pounced on a loose ball to fire beyond Fernandez in the dying seconds.
