CA Osasuna will test out the good run of form that UD Almería currently find themselves experiencing when they host the Andalusian side in the 13th round of Liga BBVA.
The home side will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Almería, having lost last week to Real Sociedad de Fútbol. Javi Gracia has included 16 year-old José García as a surprise name in his squad for the encounter. "It's a match against a direct rival, at home, in front of our home crowd, before two away matches and the visit of Real Madrid CF. Of course, the match has a great significance", said the home side's manager.
For his part, the visitor's boss, Francisco, will be without central midfielders Suso and Verza, and in their absence has called up Kiu and Rafita. "The demands are the same everyday, and every training session, but it's true that in El Sadar it's more intense. We're ready", said the Andalusian side's boss.
