OSN vs GRD Dream11 : Granada look to hammer down their top 4 spot come today’s encounter when they clash heads with a lopsided Osasuna outfit.
Back after a hiatus of two weeks as the international set of fixtures take a backseat for now, the ongoing edition of La Liga begins its ninth gameweek with Granada and Osasuna going at loggerheads in the first clash of the latest round of fixtures. It’s a match which has at stake immense consequences for the hosts, a fixture which would see them nail down their spot in the annuls of the league if they are able to emerge unscathed today.
Currently in fourth place, Granada have enjoyed a solid start to life in La Liga 2019-20. An upbeat side, they have managed to win four matches to amass 14 points which see them currently occupying fourth position, a spot which the side will be extremely pleased to find themselves in.
However, after blowing apart sides and cutting their work short with diminutive displays, the side have regressed in form during the course of the foregone three gameweeks, managing to get just 4 points from the 9 available ones. They were defeated 4-2 by Real Madrid in the previous match, a result which massively hampered their chances of making further ascendancy in the points tally.
Come Osasuna today and Granada will be looking to use this as a clash to not only make amends for their previous routing but cater a yearned for win for their supporters. Having won just the two matches, Osasuna look a bleak side, an outfit which finds itself struggling in 11th position with adverse and atrocious displays pegging them back in their quest of moving up the ranks.
However, the side will come into this encounter buoyed by what was only their second win in the last match, one which saw them break free and wrench out of a disruptive impasse. The 2-1 win over Villarreal saw them move out of a four match winless run, seeing them amass three vital points which they’ll be looking to add to come today.

OSN vs GRD Dream11 Goal-Keeper
The one area where Granada have managed to put in good displays despite their waning and wavering form is the defensive setup. They have let in just the 7 goals till now, a figure which epitomises how strong and sturdy the backline has been, refusing to budge and blatantly collapse.
And they have had to thank their goal-keeper, Ruben Martinez for that with the shot stopper being vindictive of their resilient showings. He’s snared a slew of saves for his side, leaving oppositions flummoxed and exasperated on how to move past him, seeing him become our choice for this slot.
OSN vs GRD Dream11 Defenders
The aforementioned narrative sees us opt for fullback Pervis Estupinan from the side whilst from the home side we have gone in with the two defenders. They ended up conceding four to Real Madrid in their last match but apart from that display, the side have been comparatively safeguarded by custodians in their defensive setup, names who have risen to the occasion for the side.
Also, with Osasuna managing to score just 7 goals in 8 matches, Granada will be quietly confident of pulling off a cleansheet today, seeing us go in with both their fullbacks, Carlos Neva and Victor Diaz for today’s impending clash.
OSN vs GRD Dream11 Midfielders
We begin with Antonio Puertas from the home side, the side’s leading goal scorer wit the three goals. He’s accompanied by Darwin Machis who ended up scoring for his side against Real Madrid, seeing him move just behind Puertas in the pile of top goal scorers for the side to take his tally upto two.
Ramon Azeez and Yangel Herrera come in as well for the side with Granada set to thrust all their resources in piling on a bagful of goals, seeing all four of these players heavily involved for them up the park. Elsewhere with the two goals, we have Roberto Torres becomes our singular pick from Osasuna with the player being the side’s top goal scorer as of now.
OSN vs GRD Dream11 Strikers
We have gotten in both the strikers from Osasuna for this clash with Granada showing they have be exploited defensively if put under unnerving pressure. With a goal in the side’s 2-1 win in the last clash, Ezequiel Avila was an instant pick for us along with Adrian Lopez to bring an end to proceedings for us in this encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Puertas will be our captain for this encounter while we are moving in with Machis as the vice-captain.
