Osasuna receives a top-tier Real Sociedad (6.30 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) at El Sadar with the idea of extending his strong start to the league in what will be the most even game in recent years between the two teams.
Those in Pamplona face a double challenge. On the one hand, they will try to leave behind the ten seasons that they did not beat those of San Sebastian, with a victory that would mean getting back on the way to victory after the defeat suffered last week at the hands of Sevilla, while on the other hand, they will not have the easy task of facing one of the fittest teams in the league.
Osasuna’s trainer, Jagoba Arrasate, indicated that he hopes to see “a great Osasuna & rdquor ;, something that passes” while downplaying the Real & rdquor; so that “they are not at ease and thus can bring shock to our earth”.
The 19 points that are added to those of Jagoba Arrasate They indicate his good start to the season, but the truth is that Osasuna hasn’t added three since he did so three weeks ago at the Estadio de la Cerámica against Villarreal (1-2).
Therefore, those of Tajonar will jump with the illusion of defeating the brand new leader. El Sadar hung the no-ticket board, so the maximum capacity recorded this year against Granada (21,128) will surely be exceeded.
“It’s another Real. He has a very marked style of what he wants and of his proposal. This course has changed designs more than once and is more complete. He plays well and defends very well, something to value & rdquor ;, txuri urdin box said.
Faced with the foreseeable possession of the ball favorable to Real, Osasuna will be forced to make the most of his main virtues, the high pressure and his quick exits in order to surprise the rear of the visitor.
In principle, Osasuna will play with a single attacker. Before Budimir, Kike Garcia and Chimy Avila these are the candidates.
Real Sociedad, already forgotten by the drawback (1-1) conceded this Thursday against Sturm Graz in the Europa League, once again defends its leadership in La Liga against an Osasuna against whom it has not lost in its ten last matches.
It is one of their favorite rivals in recent seasons and El Sadar a friendly ground for the San Sebastian team, who have beaten a red team in the previous three seasons in Pamplona who are really suffering against those in San Sebastian. .
Sheriff Imanol He will not be able to count on another day with Mikel Oyarzabal, who should return after the November break in good condition, nor with the central defender Igor zubeldia, corn Alex isak is better after almost not being able to play the European game and next to the Norwegian Sorloth make up a couple of the highest level.
Sorloth, on loan from Leipzig this season, just scored the tying goal against Sturm Graz and also scored against Atlético de Madrid in the squad’s penultimate outing, while Isak He had a glorious October in which he scored 6 goals with his national team and with Real, which proves his excellent moment.
If Alguacil decides not to play with both from the start, he also has a lot of gunpowder on the bench with Barrenetxea, already recovered from his back injury, Januzaj Where Lobete, while you have to mentally recover For your, in his grayest season as a goalscorer since arriving from Girona in 2019.
The goal will again be in the sights of the blue and white supporters, Remiro has the preference but the spectacular performance of his replacement Matthew ryan the times it took Sheriff It also opens the doors for the Australian to start at El Sadar.
