Team News: Osasuna
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Osasuna gaffer Jagoba Arrasate to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Chimy Ávila (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Granada
Owing to an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Granada gaffer Diego Martínez to be concerned with. Neyder Lozano (Tibia Fracture) won’t be playing here.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Granada have enough to break down this Osasuna team, although that probably won’t quite be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re tipping a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for Osasuna at full-time. Could easily see this go either way.
