Osasuna has always been characterized as a team that makes a fort out of its fiefdom. Phrases like ‘permanence is at home’ have been pronounced countless times throughout the history of the club. Any team has always known that fishing in El Sadar was not easy.
Things this season have been very different for the rojillos. The first victory at home did not come until matchday eight, when they beat Rayo, by the minimum, with a goal from Manu Sánchez in added time. However, away from their stadium they became the only team in LaLiga that had scored all the possible points. The tables seemed to have turned. In fact, at this point they have accumulated more wins away, seven, than at home, five.
Despite all this, in recent days Osasuna has once again been the team that is very difficult to beat at home. In fact, they have won the last three games played at El Sadar, against Villarreal, Levante and Alavés. Seen in this way, it seems that there could be no better time to welcome Real Madrid. Hopefully it will be to prolong the sweet moment that those from Jagoba Arrasate are experiencing at home, supported by his fans.
