Osasuna keen on making it three straight victories
For the first time this season, Osasuna are on a run of two straight wins in the LaLiga Santander. That hard-fought 1-0 win away at Levante made sure they achieved this feat. They now welcome Sevilla looking to make it three straight for the first time since the tail end of last season when they beat Alaves, Leganes, and Eibar on their road to finish in the top half of the table.
Minor setback for Lopetegui’s troops
Before their game against Dortmund on Wednesday, Sevilla had not conceded in seven matches in all competitions. They shipped three against the German side who eventually ran out 3-2 winners in the first leg. Now they turn their attention to the LaLiga, as they look to keep up with the chasing pack.
