Osasuna are in desperate need of win in La Liga as they host Espanyol at El Sadar languishing in 18th position in the Spanish top tier.
The visitors meanwhile have enjoyed a much more satisfactory campaign to date and reside in 10th position in the league after 17 matches.
Javi Garcia will be hoping that the winter break will have helped the home side regroup and refresh however, having won just once in the past two months.
The side will be looking towards top-scorer Oriol Riera once again in this match, as Osasuna move towards the dangerous territory of becoming a ‘one man team.’
Riera has seven goals already this term and only Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa has won more points individually than the striker.
Espanyol will be wary though having lost this tie four of the last five times, but manager Javier Aguirre will be wanting to build on a good start last year and push for European places.
The away team will be without Victor Sanchez and Juan Fuentes for this game due to suspension, whilst for the hosts Miguel Angel de la Cuevas is a doubt, but Fransico Silva and Alejandro Arribas are set to return.
