Gracia content with Elche point

Osasuna Coach Javi Gracia is satisfied with taking a point from Friday’s match against Elche.

The game finished goalless and leaves Osasuna in 13th place with 26 points from 24 games, five points clear of the bottom three.

Elche are 12th with the same number of points and Gracia felt his side by and large had the better of the encounter.

“We had a good first 45 minutes,” Escriba told his post-match Press conference.

“Our opponents attack directly but we defended well. We were comfortable with the ball, had good possession and got forward.

“It was a shame we couldn’t take our chances.”

Gracia added that Coro’s missed penalty was the kind his side never seem to get.

“Keep in mind we could have lost with that penalty.

“Without saying whether it was fairly given or not it’s the kind of penalty we never receive.

“But we got a point against a direct rival.”
