MADRID, 12 Ago. (EUROPA PRESS) –

CA Osasuna beat Sevilla FC (2-1) at the start of LaLiga Santander 2022/23 held this Friday at the El Sadar Stadium, a prize for the dedication and atmosphere that the team and the stands exchanged with the winning goal for Aimar Oroz.

The 20-year-old from Pamplona, ​​​​in his first game as a starter in the First Division, became head of the midfield and received the go-ahead from Chimy Ávila to take the penalty in the 74th minute that left the three points in the ‘rojilla’ house against a Champions rival.

Jagoba Arrasate’s team came out with everything and in their pressure they bothered a Sevilla that didn’t bring everything with them from the preseason. The 1-0 was not long in coming, after nine minutes with a tremendous center by Rubén Peña that Chimy finished off on goal.

All in all, the Andalusian team had an immediate response after two minutes with Rafa Mir’s 1-1, but that visiting strike stopped there. Julen Lopetegui’s men came out of the overwhelm with good actions from Papu Gómez, Tecatito Corona and Ocampos, but they had no more goals, with Mir in some good situation.

Hostilities returned in the form of posts, Moi Gómez for the locals and Delaney, for the visitors. The game was even, but the intention seemed greater in an Osasuna that was activated again after the break. The defenses grew to avoid so many occasions and in the second act the emotion in the areas decreased.


The ‘Papu’ had it from the front but shortly after he was the unfortunate protagonist of the penalty that made it 1-1. The Andalusian team complained bitterly, thinking about those ‘little penalties’ that were not going to be called this season. There was contact, and Oroz rounded off his great game with his first goal, also in a bursting Sadar.

Sevilla later protested an action in the other area, but with the local Unai García bleeding they couldn’t raise their voices much. The ‘rojillo’ team tied the first at home, where last year they missed more than they wanted, knowing that the next one is also at home against Cádiz. Sevilla leaves with doubts while the club is still working in search of possible reinforcements.
