Osasuna vs Huesca
Estadio El Sadar, Pamplona-Irunea
Friday, 20-11-2020 @11pm
Two consecutive losses in the league have pulled Osasuna down to the 13th spot in the table.
The host is on a two-game losing streak in the campaign, following a 1-0 loss on the road against Sevilla last time out in the schedule.
They have picked up 10 points from 3 wins and a draw in their eight league appearances in the campaign.
Winless in the league so far, SD Huesca is at the ultimate bottom of the table this season as it stands. The visitor has lost only three of their nine league clashes in the campaign.
Having lost two of their recent three fixtures in La Liga, they will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home with Eibar in their previous encounter.
Osasuna’s Jagoba Arrasante has a lengthy injury list to deal with. Strikers Jonathan Calleri and Chimy Avila are still recuperating on the sidelines, along with keeper Juan Perez, centre-back Aridane Hernandez and midfielders Lucas Torro and Darko Brasanac. Midfielder Jon Moncayola and striker Ante Budimir are still carrying out international commitments, which may see them given a rest. Inigo Perez is likely to join captain Oier in the middle of the park. Adrian Lopez should replace Budimir alongside Enric Gallego up-front.
Idrissa Doumbia and Gaston Silva picked up injuries prior to the international break, but were not amongst the starting XI anyway. Huesca boss Michel is likely to stick with the same team that dominated Eibar, although Javi Ontiveros and Shinji Okazki may get a look in.
The visitor has recorded two of the last three overall wins. Their previous encounter gave a 1-0 home win for Huesca. Both teams have scored in two of their recent three clashes. Only one of their overall four meetings has ended in a draw. The host has been winless at home for the past two fixtures.
