Osasuna melted the inconsequential Valencia of Javi Gracia in El Sadar and added the 40 points that virtually guarantee his permanence in First. The rojillo group undressed the unfortunate Valencian team, which added its thirteenth defeat in LaLiga and transmits the same coldness as its coach.
In the cold war he has had with Meriton in recent weeks, Javi Gracia continues to pull chinitas. El Sadar’s lineup was another blow. With Correia and Soler injured, Gracia lined up the young Guillem Molina, a converted center-back, on the right side, Yunus in front and Wass in midfield. The substitution of Christian Oliva was significant, signing in the winter market with Ferro and Cutrone without the knowledge of Gracia.
Valencia conceded the first goal in another critical ball exit error. Jaume hit the goal directly, but Yunus gave the ball to Calleri, who fixed the two Valencia centrals and unloaded to his right so that the often unguarded Javi Martínez could score.
The only one who gets him out of any dead end of current Valencia is Guedes. The Portuguese shot at the post with a zero draw in the first arrival of his team, and after the red goal he received from Gayà and slipped an excellent pass at mid-height, similar to that of Cádiz, on Gameiro, who scored by shooting from the boat early. Osasuna took two minutes to score again. After another mistake in Valencia’s starting zone, this time from Gayà, Javi Martínez assisted Calleri, who scored his fifth goal this season.
The answer, again, came with the stamp of Guedes. The Portuguese beats lines while driving, dodges opponents, and shoots with danger. His first driving in the second half ended in a kick that Sergio Herrera rejected and Gameiro crashed into the post. The current Valencia begins and ends in Guedes. There is no one else.
Around minute 60 came a sequence of unfortunate plays at Valencia. Diakhaby gave up a corner, took Osasuna, and Calleri headed on the arm of the kid Guillem Molina. The penalty was diverted by Jaume, who had hung from the crossbar to mislead Roberto Torres, the red-and-white pitcher. The next corner was finished off by David García but the ball hit Wass’s hand and then Diakhaby’s. Double hand. This time the penalty was transformed by Roberto Torres despite the new show from Almenara’s goal. Jaume, along with Guedes, was the best of a disappointing Valencia.
