Current season

Founded in 1920, it currently plays in Segunda División, holding home games at the 19,800-capacity El Sadar Stadium.[3] The team tends to play in a red shirt with navy blue shorts, whereas the away kit differs from season to season.

"Los Rojillos" is the nickname of the club, meaning "The Reds". The word "osasuna" means "health" in Basque, used in a sense of "strength" or "vigour". For different reasons, rivalries exist between Osasuna and Real Zaragoza,[4][5] Real Madrid,[6][7][8] and other Basque clubs, particularly Athletic Bilbao.[9][10][11]

HistoryEdit

Founded in 1920, Osasuna first reached Segunda División in 1932. It made it to La Liga three seasons later.

The club achieved its first ever UEFA Cup qualification in 1985–86 after finishing sixth, eventually reaching the third round in the 1990–91 edition. Finishing last in 1993–94, the side spent six years in the second level. In 2005, it reached the Copa del Rey final for the first time, losing after extra time to Real Betis.[12][13][14]

On 27 November 2005, Osasuna played its 1,000th game in La Liga. After a stellar 2005–06 domestic campaign, Osasuna made history by finishing in fourth place – equalling its best ever finish – synonymous with the chance of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League in the following season through play-off matches. This achievement was made more dramatic by the suspense that was maintained until the last day of the championship in which Osasuna and Sevilla were both vying for the fourth place – both teams eventually ended the season with the same number of points but Osasuna got through due to their head-to-head record. Osasuna, however, did not make it to the Champions League group phase, as they were eliminated by Hamburger SV in the third qualifying round, leaving the Navarrese to vie in the UEFA Cup for the fifth time in its history.

Osasuna were drawn in Group D of the 2006–07 UEFA Cup along with Parma, Lens, Odense and Heerenveen. The club qualified for the knock-out stage, finishing second in its group, and were drawn against Bordeaux, which had dropped into the UEFA Cup following an unsuccessful Champions League campaign. The Spaniards progressed 1–0 on aggregate, drawing 0–0 away before winning 1–0 in Pamplona through an extra time winner by Javad Nekounam.

Next up were Rangers, and Osasuna again progressed following a 1–1 draw in Scotland and a 1–0 win at home. The club was drawn against German side Bayer Leverkusen in the quarter-finals. Regarded as severe underdogs, Osasuna not only progressed to the semi-finals but did so in style (a 3–0 away win had virtually sealed the tie, but the Rojillos also won the second leg, 1–0). In the semi-finals, the club was drawn against holders and fellow Spanish side Sevilla, eventually losing 1–2 on aggregate after a 1–0 home win.

In the following two seasons, Osasuna struggled heavily in the league. In 2008–09, it only avoided relegation in the final day; being in 18th place and entering the final matchday at home to Real Madrid, the club fell behind 0–1 but came back with two goals (the decider courtesy of Juanfran, a Merengue youth graduate) to remain in the top flight.[15]

Osasuna had varied success following those seasons, but struggled again from 2012 to 2014, being relegated to the second division after an 18th-place finish in 2013–14. A managerial change resulted in substantial improvement, and Osasuna won the final match of the regular 2015–16 season away to Oviedo 0–5, qualifying for promotion playoffs and finishing sixth in the table. It subsequently won all its playoff games – against Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the semi-final stage and Girona in the final stage – to achieve promotion once again to La Liga.

Osasuna season on 2016–17 ended with the club being relegated again.
