Football / First.- (Previous) Osasuna seeks to stop the bad streak against the needy Elche


Osasuna seeks this Monday in El Sadar (9:00 p.m.) to end his bad run of results in the last game of the fifteenth day of LaLiga Santander, in which Elche, already without the dismissed Fran Escribá on the bench, aspires to leave of the descent positions.

Those from Jagoba Arrasate have not won since they assaulted La Cerámica on October 17 (1-2); Since then, they have drawn with Granada (1-1) and Real Madrid (0-0), in a meritorious match at the Santiago Bernabéu, and subsequently lost to Sevilla (2-0), Real Sociedad (0-2) and Atlético de Madrid (1-0).

However, it will be the club’s technical secretary, Sergio Mantecón, who sits on the bench at El Sadar, who, unlike the Argentine, does have the necessary UEFA license to lead the team as a starting coach in matches of LaLiga Santander.
