Osasuna are still winless at home this season, but since there's coach Petar Vasiljevic they actually put some good performances, especially at El Sadar. On last Sunday several important players (Roberto Torres, Berenguer, Sergio Leon, Riera) were rested against Espanyol and now they should be fresh. Oier was sent off in last game with a red card, but it was cancelled and he can feature today. Javier Flano, Digard, Manuel Flano, Tano are long-term injuries. Villarreal had not much time to prepare as they had a difficult match against Real Madrid on Sunday evening. Their chairman Roig complained a lot about refereeing, making some weird suggestions, and I believe that it won't help them in near future. Quality goalkeeper Asenjo suffered from major injury and he'll be out for the rest of the season. Jose Angel, Adrian, Sansone are also injured, Bruno is suspended. Coach Fran Escriba may rest more first-choice players as Villarreal face Espanyol at home on Saturday and that is an important match in race for European places. In my opinion hosts are favourites.
