After 5 games without a defeat (4-1-0), Valladolid was defeated in Zaragoza's home and came in trouble with their participation at the promotion play-offs. Their defeat 3-2 brought them in 5th place, tied with Cadiz and Osasuna, the latter is their current opponent. They need all the 3 points in tonight's game, since even a draw will probably leave them out of play-offs. Central defender Deivid and midfielder A.Cotan stay out due to their injuries. Defender N.Martinez returns to the game after being suspended.
Although with difficulties, Osasuna overcame Lorca's hurdle (1-0) and now their participation at the promotion play-offs depends only on their results. With a win in tonight's encounter, they will climb at 67 points, which are enough to secure 5th or 6th place in the standings. First choice goalkeeper S.Herrera and left back C.Clerc, both very important players in this season, aren't playing in tonight's crucial match due to their injures.
It's a life or death matter tonight's game in 'Jose Zorrilla', since only the team who will get the three pointer continues at play offs. A draw may lead them in ties with up to 5 teams and none of them want this adventure. Valladolid scored 41 times at home, more than any other team in Segunda. Osasuna need to score too, since in any other case their chances will be minimized. BTTS seems to be the best choice here, since in this game both teams are forced to risk.
