Result: Ten-man Malaga ease past Osasuna

Malaga give their survival hopes a timely boost with a 2-0 win away to Osasuna despite being reduced to 10 men early in the second half.

Malaga have given their La Liga survival hopes a massive boost with a 2-0 win over Osasuna this evening, despite being reduced to 10 men early in the second half.

The hosts almost took the lead within seven minutes when Damia's downward header was well stopped by Wilfredo Caballero, who then recovered in time to make an even more impressive second save to deny Alvaro Cejudo's rebound.

Malaga were ahead in the 14th minute when Garcia Samuel received the ball in the box before hitting a first-time strike past the keeper to break the deadlock.

The visitors almost doubled their lead 10 minutes later as Duda picked up the ball just outside the box before fizzing an effort towards goal that drew a good save from Andres Fernandez.

Osasuna responded with a chance of their own just a minute later as Roberto Torres's effort was saved by Caballero before Jordan Loties fired the rebound against the post.

Malaga's task of holding on to their lead was made even harder just seven minutes after the restart when Jesus Gamez was dismissed having picked up a second yellow card.

However, the visitors went on to score another in the 66th minute as Nordin Amrabat found space inside the box to pick out the bottom left corner and give his side some breathing space.

The hosts almost pulled a goal back with 10 minutes remaining as a scramble inside the box resulted in Torres firing an effort towards the bottom corner, but once again Caballero was on hand to save his side.

Malaga held on to claim three valuable points that lift them all the way up to 13th in the table.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
