Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Levante and Osasuna go head to head at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia in the La Liga round 23. Levante have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating Real Madrid on the road, while sharing the spoils with Granada at home, and, no doubt, they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Osasuna. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Morales, who scored a brace at the weekend.
It has to be noted that boss Paco Lopez can count on key players for Sunday’s clash. Los Rojillos, on the other hand, did well to beat Eibar at home on Matchday 23, but seeing that they are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on los Levantinos. The likes of Brasanac, Chimy Avila, Jony, and Roncaglia have all been struggling with injuries of late.
Highlighted Player (José Campaña):
Jose Campana is a Spanish footballer who plays for Levante in La Liga as a midfielder. Born in Seville on May 31, 1993, Campana began his youth career in his home-town club Sevilla and he eventually played 20 games in La Liga for the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan outfit.
In 2013 he moved to England, signing a contract with Crystal Palace, but he made no more than six appearances in the league for the capital club. After ending his loan spell with Nurnberg in 2014, Jose Campana joined Serie A side Sampdoria, but he was immediately sent on loan to Porto. The Spanish midfielder played no more than two games for Porto in Primeira Liga and in 2015 he signed a loan deal with Spanish Segunda Division side Alcorcon.
In the summer of 2016 Campana moved to Levante and he has been playing for los Levantinos ever since. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both defensive midfielder and attacking midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Osasuna):
Osasuna are a Basque football team that plays in Spanish La Liga. Los Rojillos are based in Pamplona and and the club were founded in 1920. Estadio El Sadar has been the home of Osasuna since 1967 and the capacity of the stadium is 19,800.
The colour of Osasuna’s home kit is red, while the team’s shorts are navy blue. Los Rojillos dropped to the Segunda Division at the end of the 2013/2014 La Liga campaign, but they did not spend too many time in the Spanish second tier. The club returned to the elite division in 2016 after beating Girona in the play-offs.
Osasuna made it to the Spanish Copa del Rey final in 2005, but they eventually lost to Real Betis after extra time in the title game. The meaning of the word Osasuna is “health” in Basque and it is used in a sense of strength.
