Osasuna started the first half well, beginning with Ante Budimir opening the scoring, 27 minutes in. Later, Osasuna scored again and increased their advantage thanks to another goal from Ante Budimir, scoring his second goal in the 39th minute, thereby seeing the first half to a 2-0.

The second half started favourably for Granada, following early goal from Luis Suarez in the 50th minute. However, Osasuna just before the final whistle increased their lead via a Jon Moncayola goal, and the game ended 3-1.
