Two newly promoted sides in Spanish La Liga will face each other in 12th round, Leganes are welcoming Osasuna and their streak of five consecutive defeats doesn't sounds good before this game, in last four rounds they conceded 12 goals while scored only two, it's true that they had pretty difficult schedule and faced with pretty good teams recently, like Real Madrid, Sevilla... They are now at 17th spot at the table with 10 points collected in 11 rounds, only one point are above relegation zone and must give their best to achieve positive result here and secure position in safe zone. So far managed to celebrate only three times and all of those victories were with one goal margin, attacking skills must be improved since nine goals in 11 matches isn't great while defense was terrible and conceded 22 goals. Main target for them in this season is to stay above relegation zone, so far managed to achieve that but they can't afford failures anymore, now it won't be easy against Osasuna, in last meeting with them in February at this field managed to achieve routine victory but it won't be easy to repeat for sure. Hosts must show much more than in past rounds to avoid dropping into relegation zone, they for sure were exhausted from previous games and international break was good to consolidate their squad and rest, now must give their best to celebrate but i doubt that will manage to achieve victory in the end. Offensive midfielder Omar Ramos (9/0) won't be available for this match while appearance of defender Bustinza (5/0) is in doubt due to slight injury.
Osasuna meanwhile failed to stay above relegation zone after 11 rounds in strongest Spanish league and victory tonight could lead them into safe zone, so far they achieved only one victory in Primera and now it's right time for second, during this recent break they played one friendly match with Eibar and celebrated with convincing result, that was for sure significant for them, in previous round were defeated by another newcomer Alaves at home with narrow result, now must go for a victory at all costs and at this moment i believe that can celebrate and reach safe zone. Visitors were slight better in attack than guests while conceded one goal less so far, here should be able to break not so great defense and score some goals. After two seasons in Segunda guests finally managed to return, now must show improving to keep their Primera status for the next season, in previous rounds they didn't showed some great performances, however they had their moments, in duel with Bilbao managed to avoid defeat and earn one point, here have a chance. Hosts aren't some team which will be easy to overcome but i believe that Osasuna can confront to them and achieve victory or at least avoid defeat. Defender Javier Flano (2/0), midfielder Didier Digard (3/0) and forward Jaime Romera (9/0) are all injured and will remain sidelined for this match.
Last game of 12th round in Spanish La Liga will be played between two teams which will fight for surviving, hosts are still in safe zone with three points more than guests and here can't afford defeat but guests are highly motivated for this game, here they see their chance for getting out of relegation zone and will go for a victory at all costs, despite that hosts are marked as clear favorites i believe that Osasuna can surprise here and take some points.
