The Estadio El Sadar sees Sunday action as Osasuna take on Getafe – 2:00pm GMT.

Osasuna will face Getafe with a difference of League position of 14 places. They will be fourth in the League when they welcome eighteenth placed Getafe.

It’s 12 points so far for Osasuna this season, going into this match

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Almería for Jagoba Arrasate’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

Also, Osasuna keep finding ways to win, having secured four victories in their last five games is astonishing this season, a form has placed them in clear contention for Champion’s League qualification. Their position is fourth in the League and they have 12 points, that is, 4W, 1L and 0D having won four matches and lost one game.

When Osasuna host Getafe, they will do so on the back of three victories on their own ground.

A win in this fixture, would take Osasuna’s points from 12 to 15, so far this season.

A solid defensive team

Osasuna’s defence has been rock solid so far, only conceding three goals in their previous matches. The number of goals that a team scores can sometimes give a misleading impression of performance. Osasuna have found the net seven times (4 from open play and three penalties), but their performance at times this season has been average. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Ezequiel Avila (3), Aimar Oroz (2), and Ruben Garcia (1).

Injury and illness have depleted Jagoba Arrasate’s Osasuna and they will likely be missing two key personnel for Sunday’s match.

Nervous Getafe take relegation battle to the Estadio El Sadar to face Osasuna

Getafe will be hoping to increase their row, after victories over both Real Sociedad and Valencia.

Also, when you suffer three defeats in the last five meetings, it should come as no surprise that your team is very much struggling at the bottom of the League. But that is the situation that Getafe find themselves in. Now they have 1 matches won, 3 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in eighteenth place, with a total of four points having won one game, drawn one game, and lost three games.

Playing away from home, Getafe have lost two matches.

Getafe will have 7 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Getafe may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
