Javi Gracia conceded that defeat to Almeria ‘hurt’ his Osasuna side after they lost to the promoted team 1-0.

Rodri scored a first half goal to give the away team their third win in a row.

“All losses hurt,” he told reporters. “But this one especially because we had real hopes of coming away with the points.

“We generated chances, but in football you have to build from the back.

“We didn’t have a shred of luck, but they came with an approach that worked.”
