Result: Osasuna relegated despite victory

Osasuna are relegated from La Liga despite beating basement outfit Real Betis 2-1 in an incident-filled clash in Pamplona.

Osasuna have been relegated from La Liga despite beating basement outfit Real Betis 2-1 in Pamplona.

An end-to-end opening five minutes produced chances for both sides, with Alvaro Cejudo and Oriol Riera both coming close for Osasuna, before Cedrick Mabwati fired one over the crossbar for Betis.

It was the home side that opened the scoring after 12 minutes when Riera converted a low cross from Cejudo.

Play was interrupted for a significant period following the goal, however, when a stand at El Sadar collapsed, leaving a host of spectators on the field. However, it is understood that no serious injuries were suffered during the incident.

The match eventually resumed following a 30-minute break and Osasuna had their second after 14 minutes when Javier Acuna converted from close range.

Roberto Torres came close to making it 3-0 moments later, but his effort was blocked on the line.

Betis had the first real chance of the second period when Ruben Castro broke into the box, but his effort was straight into the arms of Andres Fernandez as the match continued to flow from end to end.

Javier Chica was next to come close for Betis after 55 minutes, but his effort once more brought the best out of Osasuna goalkeeper Fernandez.

Betis cut the deficit to 2-1 after 70 minutes, however, when Chica found the back of the net from distance.

It was so nearly 2-2 when Castro found space inside the Osasuna box moments later, but once more Fernandez was across to make a fine save and keep his side ahead.

Despite picking up the three points, it was not enough for the home side to survive as Getafe won at Rayo Vallecano.

Meanwhile, Betis' Segunda status has been confirmed for the last few weeks.

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)

· 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)
