CA Osasuna and Celta signed a goalless draw this Monday at the El Sadar Stadium, a result that is worth a little more to the locals for continuing to add towards their primary objective of permanence than to the visitors, who do not stray too far from danger .

The ‘rojillo’ team could not give continuity to their last two victories, at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in LaLiga Santander and against Athletic Club in the Copa del Rey, and the point continues to allow them to climb towards tranquility and without taking them away from the European zone, which has three points.

For its part, the team from Vigo managed to scratch something positive for the third consecutive outing to stay with 28 points, although they are still a narrow margin over the relegation places, of which only three separate them.

It was a disputed game, in which Osasuna was the one who tried the most and had the most control, greater in the first part where he enjoyed the best chances, especially at the beginning with a good cross shot from Ante Budimir and a header from Aimar Oroz who found the safety of Iván Villar. Carlos Carvalhal’s men could not create too much danger and only threatened in some transition in the final stretch, although without worrying too much.

On the other hand, the second 45 minutes were more open and that favored Celta more, who had a very clear chance through Gabri Veiga after a good run by Argentine Franco Cervi. However, the youth squad player did not connect his shot well with everything in his favor against Aitor Fernández.

The visitors gave another warning later with a shot from outside the box by Iago Aspas, but that woke up Osasuna, reinvigorated with the changes of Jagoba Arrasate. The ‘rojillos’, who saw a goal by Abde disallowed for offside by ‘Chimy’ Ávila, pressed in search of the goal and Pablo Ibáñez grazed him with a great header that ran into a successful Villar again.
