Thursday at the Estadio El Sadar, as Osasuna host Espanyol in the LaLiga.

Espanyol currently sit in fourteenth place as they travel to ninth placed Osasuna.

It’s 13 points so far for Osasuna this season, going into this meeting

Osasuna come to this match on the back of a victory, having beaten Villarreal 2-0 at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia.

Also, some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and two losses for Osasuna seems very relevant. With 13 points (4W, 4L and 1D), they are established in ninth position in the League having won four meetings, drawn one game, and lost four games.

Osasuna have won three games and lost two fixtures of their five League matches at home this season.

Victory for Osasuna would take their points tally to 16 so far this season.

Jagoba Arrasate could be missing up to two of their players through injury or illness for the game on Thursday.

With the LaLiga season well into its stride, Espanyol have managed to gain nine points

With a win in their previous game, (1-0) against Real Valladolid, Espanyol will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Also, Espanyol need to get out of the losing habit, with four recorded in the last eight games. Their position is fourteenth in the League and they have nine points, that is, 2W, 4L and 3D having won two fixtures, drawn three fixtures, and lost four matches.

Espanyol will travel to Osasuna with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory, two darts, and one defeats.

A win in this fixture, would take Espanyol’s points from 9 to 12, so far this season.

Espanyol are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Diego Martinez is concerned that Thursday’s fixture could see him without four of his key players
