Espanyol vs Osasuna Preview: Recent Form, Team News, and Predicted Lineups

This can be a very close and exciting duel, so let's take a better look at both teams before they meet on Saturday

Espanyol

With two wins in the last three La Liga matches, Espanyol managed to get out of the relegation zone, but they remain just one point ahead of the first team in it. Still, there is a plethora of teams within a couple of points in the lower part of the standings, so Espanyol doesn't have to panic yet, especially with so many games left to play.

When it comes to team news, Keidi Bare and Adria Pedrosa are the only two players currently out with injuries at Espanyol.

Espanyol Predicted Lineup:

Fernandez – Gil, Montes, Cabrera, Olivan – Vidal, Vinicius, Darder, Puado – Braithwaite, Joselu

Osasuna

After a good start and first half of the season, Osasuna slowed down a bit in La Liga. After all, the team has just one win in the last six matches in the league, along with two draws and three losses. Still, the team from Pamplona remains in the top half of the standings and on top of that, they managed to reach Copa del Rey semi-finals, so their fans are certainly pleased by the season so far.

Meanwhile, Ruben Pena and Nacho Vidal are out with injuries, but the rest of the team is in good shape ahead of the next game.

Osasuna Predicted Lineup:

Fernandez – Moreno, Aridane, D. Garcia, Sanchez – Brasanac, Torro, Gomez – R. Garcia, Avila, Ezzalzouli

La Liga Standings

Player to Watch: David Garcia

We already said that we expect a close game and not many goals, so our choice as a player to watch is David Garcia, Osasuna's centre back who's job is to keep Espanyol forwards at bay in this game.

The Spanish defender has plenty of experience despite still being 28 years old and he started in seventeen games for Osasuna this season. In addition to his defensive responsibilities, he also managed to score one goal this season in La Liga.
