Malaga have held Valencia to a 0-0 draw at the Estadio La Rosaleda in the Primera Division tonight.
Both teams enjoyed good chances in the early stages, with Ignacio Camacho heading Duda's whipped cross wide of the mark before Pablo Piatti's low effort whistled past the far post for the visitors.
Los Boquerones had goalkeeper Willy Caballero to thank for maintaining parity after the 32-year-old produced a double save on the half-hour mark to deny Juan Antonio Pizzi's men the lead.
Firstly Cabellero had to be alert to parry a fiercely-struck free kick away, before reacting swiftly to keep out Jonas's rebound moments later.
The Argentine replicated his heroics once again early in the second half by putting his face on the line to deny Dani Parejo's goal-bound effort.
At the other end, Los Che shot-stopper Diego Alves proved similarly impervious between the sticks, as the Brazilian denied Pablo Perez a dream Liga debut by tipping his header past the post on 76 minutes.
Ultimately both coaches settled for a share of the spoils as the two goalkeepers did enough to earn their respective team a point in Andalusia.
