Osasuna vs Malaga

Osasuna Malaga is a encounter between a team that appear to be climbing out of a rut and a team falling head first into one.

Osasuna stunned relegation rivals Espanyol with a 3-0 away win last weekend but are still bottom of La Liga with just eight points.

“We know it was an important step for our mood and belief,” commented Rojillos defender Miguel Flano. “At the moment the table is not relevant, we only think of getting three points in our next game.”

Malaga have perhaps allowed theirselves to be distracted by the Champions League, and the result has been back to back home defeats against fairly meagre opposition and a slip to 5th place.

“We want to take things game by game and show what we can do on the pitch, which is to play the ball and not fear anyone,” said gifted prodigy Isco.
