On 14 August 2021, Osasuna vs Espanyol will play their first match in “La Liga” at the EI Sadar. I hope the match will be competitive. Two Team will take the field :hoping for their first win.
Competition: La Liga 2021/2022
Kick Off: 21:00
Venue: Estadio El Sadar(Pamplona)
Osasuna have lost 4 of their last 5 matches in La Liga. The exception was an impressive derby win at San Mames but they have struggled at El Sadar in recent months, pretty much ever since their record breaking unbeaten home run ended. Indeed it’s just 1 victory in 7 home league outings and only 5 points from those matches for Osasuna and that should offer plenty of encouragement to the visitors here.
Espanyol’s bid to really kick-start a dramatic escape act heads to Pamplona this weekend as they take on mid-table Osasuna. Jagoba Arrasate’s side have an 11 point advantage on Espanyol heading into this match but they probably still need a couple more victories to absolutely secure their top flight status heading into next season.

Martinez – Estupinan, Garcia, Hernandez, Vidal – Garcia, Sanjurjo, Brasanac, Torres – Arnaiz, Gallego (4-4-2)
Lopez – Didac, Cabrera, Espinosa, Javi Lopez – Darder, Sanchez, Lopez, Embarba – De Tomas, Wu (4-4-2)
Espanyol are playing considerably better now and on paper they will be able to name a stronger starting XI than Osasuna despite being so far below them in the standings. El Sadar is no longer the fortress it was earlier this term and throughout last season. Espanyol look capable of breaching it and coming away with a vital win that could be a real platform for them to build from.
