The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action this weekend as Granada take on Osasuna at El Sadar Stadium in an important clash on Sunday. The two sides have experienced varying degrees of success this season and will want to do well in this fixture.
Osasuna are currently in 19th place in the La Liga standings and are in danger of being relegated this season. The Pamplona-based outfit held Valencia to a 1-1 draw last weekend and will face a stern test on Sunday.
Granada, on the other hand, have exceeded expectations this season and find themselves in the top half of the table. The away side played out a 2-2 draw against Villarreal in its previous game and will be confident ahead of this weekend's fixture.
