Osasuna Keen On Winning Against Granada

Osasuna vs Granada

Online bookies like 12BET, chooses CA Osasuna as favorites against Granada CF when they meet on 18 August 2013. The choice is a bit ironic, knowing that Granada fared a little bit better in the last season’s rankings.
Despite of avoiding relegation, Los Rojillos were aware of their “converting” dilemmas. They are having a hard time making a strong finish. Perhaps this explains why it trailed behind Granada by three (3) points. The only thing they needed was a single win.
Responding to this need and with the attempt to get even against El Granà, the club signed the Paraguayan striker, José Ariel Núñez to fill the missing piece. Since they are known for their ability to protect the lead, Núñez’s entry will definitely give a boost to their scoring and vindicate themselves from a humiliating 3-0 loss against Granada during the last season.
In as far as team form is concerned, Los Rojillos had only lost once in their past friendlies—and that was against league giants, Real Madrid. The rest of its exhibition matches ended in a draw, which were fair enough to prepare them for the real battle on the pitch.
Meanwhile, although they are pegged as heavy favorites, ending a draw is very much possible. After all, Granada is not just an ordinary club. Given that they have a higher rank, proves that they have no plans of taking things lightly during their first match. Unless the Los Rojillos man up, they will always be in danger of losing.
