Osasuna enjoyed a mesmerising home victory against Cádiz at the Estadio El Sadar on Tuesday. Osasuna arrived with the intention of increasing their league score after a 2-2 draw against Athletic Bilbao. Cádiz were hoping to increase their winning streak after back-to-back victories against Huesca and Granada. At the moment, Osasuna are in 11th place on the table and has 44 points while Cádiz sit in 12th with 43 points after 36 matches.

Osasuna started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, with Ante Budimir finding the net at the 38 minute mark and managed to see out the first half 1-0.

Cádiz started strong in the second half and were able to dominate, thanks to an early penalty goal from Ivan Saponjic in the 49th minute. However, each side looked hungry to win and Osasuna then found the back of the net at the 75 minute mark thanks to Ante Budimir, taking the score to 2-1. The momentum was now with Los Rojillos, who then scored again through a goal from Roberto Torres, on 86 minutes to establish a 3-1. Cádiz in turn, then responded just before the final whistle increasing their lead with an effort from Alberto Perea. When the final wisthle blew, the result was 3-2 to Osasuna.

For Osasuna, Roberto Torres, Enric Gallego, Jon Moncayola, Jony and Juan Cruz, came on for Oier, Ezequiel Avila, Javier Martinez Calvo, Ruben Garcia and Manu Sanchez.
