Osasuna beat Almería comfortably (3-1) this Saturday thanks to an arreón after the break with which he knocked out the Andalusian team and begins to be excited about Europe after the runner-up in the Copa del Rey.
With the dream of the Copa del Rey already finished, El Sadar paid its particular tribute to the runners-up under the timid rain that fell in Pamplona a week after the final against Real Madrid.
The Navarrese team players bossy came out, controlling possession of the ball with Moncayola and Aimar Oroz as the main channelers of the game. Abde, close to the left flank, made his intentions clear with a house brand interned who died inside the small area. The Moroccan continued to do his thing and continually put Pozo in trouble.
Osasuna touched the goal in minute 34. aimar he gave the ball to a Budimir who let it pass to get away from Pozo inside the area and signed a cross shot that Fernando repelled with his left foot.
The pace dropped considerably over time, with an Almería that had a hard time creating chances. The domain was local.
The visitors chose to play long, a somewhat wrong decision when facing David García, one of the players who wins the most balls from above, and the end of the first part was reached with an open clash in which the two teams had things at stake.
Osasuna’s good feelings in the first half were rewarded as soon as the second 45 minutes began. Aimar took out the magic wand to put in a through pass that Budimir was not going to miss. Zenica’s ‘swan’ made it 1-0 in a one-on-one with Fernando after raising the ball slightly before the goalkeeper left.
The good start of the Navarrese team did not end there, since five minutes later Abde took advantage of a counter to go towards the center very calmly and sign a spectacular right hand with a thread that slipped through a corner. 2-0 and Osasuna put land in the middle.
A post prevented the third after a free kick by Aimar. The situation was controlled by Osasuna, but Arrasate asked from the band to close the story with the third goal.
Almería made changes in search of a comeback, but the 3-0 put an end to any hint of a visitor’s reaction in the 81st minute.
Aimar, the best in Osasuna this Saturday, he filtered a pass to Moi Gómez, who drilled the Andalusian team’s goal with his right leg.
Almería, in minute 92, made it 3-1 through Lázaro.
Osasuna added three points that keep alive the possibility of accessing Europe next year. He has four days ahead to achieve that dream.
