Match preview

Will Villarreal’s resurgence continue?

Last weekend, el Submarino Amarillo won again, this time hammering RCD Espanyol 5-1 at Estadio de la Cerámica.

This means Unai Emery’s men have now won four of their last five fixtures, amassing 26 points from the last 33 available.

In this period, Villarreal have risen from 13th all the way up to sixth so currently sit just three points outside the Champions League places.

Will they leapfrog both Atlético Madrid and Barcelona, even if only temporarily, with a victory in Pamplona?

Osasuna meanwhile, since winning the Segunda División in 2019, have finished tenth and then 11th and are enjoying more mid-table mediocrity just now.

Los Rojillos though have actually lost back-to-back games, 3-0 to Atleti and then 1-0 at Real Sociedad last Sunday.

Nevertheless, before this, Jagoba Arrasate’s side had taken ten points from five games so are comfortably in 11th place, a whopping 11 clear of danger.

Can they stop in form Villarreal at El Sadar?

Osasuna team news

Osasuna are without defenders Aridane Hernández and Jesús Areso due to injury so Juan Cruz will continue as David García’s partner.

The midfield trio of Lucas Torró, Darko Brašanac and Jon Moncayola will continue to be key to their success.

Ante Budimir will continue to lead the line, supported by Chimy Ávila.

Villarreal team news

Unai Emery meanwhile has no reason to change anything after a free week with another one coming up.

Giovani Lo Celso has slotted in nicely since joining on loan from Tottenham in the winter.

He’ll support Arnaut Danjuma, last weekend’s four-goal hero Yeremy and Samu Chukwueze who could return to the XI.

Boulaye Dia scored off the bench against Espanyol so might also feel he deserves a start in attack.

Even with Paco Alcácer injured, Villarreal have good options in attacking areas.
