Will Osasuna’s excellent start to the season continue?
Last Sunday, los Rojillos got back to winning ways, beating Rayo Vallecano 2-1 at El Sadar.
Aimar Oroz broke the deadlock, but they still needed a stoppage time winner from substitute Rubén García to snatch the points.
Before this, Jagoba Arrasate’s side had began with back-to-back wins over Sevilla and Cádiz, before a narrow 1-0 defeat to Real Betis.
So Osasuna, who’ve finished either tenth or 11th since promotion in 2019, are going from strength-to-strength.
Current Segunda División champions Almería will, in the long-term, be hoping for a similarly lengthy and comfortable stay in the top-flight.
Rojiblancos impressed in their first three games, narrowly losing to Real Madrid, drawing with Elche and then beating Sevilla.
However, on Monday night, Rubi’s team endured their first sub-par display of the season, beaten 1-0 by Real Valladolid.
In fairness, the night’s only goal at Estadio José Zorrilla did come three minutes into injury time.
They’re in Monday action again, but will Almería bounce back at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos?
