Osasuna are gearing up for what their boss Jagoba Arrasate calls a “special week”.
Los Rojillos – the ‘Little Reds’ – have reached the Copa del Rey final for only the second time in the history, giving the Navarre club another opportunity to win the first major trophy of their 102-year history.
Diario de Navarra – Pamplona’s largest newspaper – is already focusing on the big game, with their Copa del Rey stories at the top of their homepage.
But, as Arraste is quick to remind everyone, there is another important match to focus on before attention can be switched to the weekend.
“We’re excited because it’s a special week, but we have to think about Barcelona first,” he said.
“Of course there is a lot of noise and that’s normal, because it’s the week of the Copa final.
“We still have a lot to play for ahead of the final on Saturday.”
