Deportivo midfielder Paulo Assuncao as conceded that his side's match against Osasuna this weekend is 'like a cup final'.
The Turcos, who sit in in 19th place, travel to the bottom-placed club on Sunday, and the Brazilian anchor-man has admitted that the match is a real six-pointer.
“On Sunday, we will play a cup final against Osasuna,” he told reporters. “Our team is a very good one, so I know we will improve.
“We are confident that we can win at El Sadar, but we realise it will be a tough game.”
The Brazilian joined the club this month on a free from Sao Paulo.
