MALAGA, Spain - Malaga and Valencia failed to start the second half of the Spanish league seasons with a victory, playing to a 0-0 draw on Friday.

The teams took a total of 28 shots, including a combined 10 on goal, but couldn't score at La Rosaleda Stadium.

Malaga nearly broke through in the 66th minute but goalkeeper Diego Alves was quick to deny Roque Santa Cruz's volleyed shot.

Moments later, Valencia saw Tina Costa's effort ruled offside before only Diego Alves' quick reaction kept Pablo Perez's low shot out in the 76th.

Valencia stayed eighth, while Malaga moved five points clear of the relegation zone.

Real Madrid can provisionally join co-leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid atop the standings with a victory at last-place Real Betis on Saturday.
