Although the Segunda division still rumbles on for another two matchdays, as Osasuna boast a six-point lead at the top of the able and a ten-point advantage over third-place Albacete, it is safe to say the minnows from Pamplona will be contesting La Liga next season.
But are they? And what will they bring to the division?
The club with the nickname Gorritxoak are no strangers to Spain’s top-flight.
In fact, from 2000 to 2014 the side contested every La Liga season and even finished fourth at the end of the 2005/06 campaign.
However, relegation followed at the end of the 2013/14 season and although promotion was achieved two-seasons later, it was a one-season spell back in the top-flight before relegation ensued.
That is how it has been for the last two seasons after finishing eighth in the Segunda division last year before going on to claim the title this season from Granada.
Have they won anything?
Four-times Osasuna have claimed Spain’s second-tier title.
However, when it comes to major trophies, the cupboard is bare.
The club did reach the final of the Copa Del Rey in 2005 and even made the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup in 2007 before losing to fellow Spaniards Sevilla.
Who’s the gaffer?
Former Real Sociedad manager Jagoba Arrasate is the man responsible for guiding Osasuna back to the big time.
The Spaniard only took over in June last year after stepping down as Numancia boss after failing to guide the club back into La Liga after a 4-1 aggregate play-off loss to Real Valladolid.
Although at the time the agreed contract with Osasuna was for a single season, it is expected the club’s hierarchy will make an extended offer to Arrasate to stay on for at least another year.
Osasuna may have earned promotion and much of that comes down to the club’s joint top scorers Juan Villar and Roberto Torres.
Both have netted 12 times this season which may not sound a great deal, but is only six behind the overall top scorer Alvaro for UD Almeria.
To put that into contrast, Osasuna are the only side to currently have two players inside the top six for goals scored this season.
Prediction for the club?
Safety is naturally the priority and the club will feel back at home in the top-flight where they have spent much of their history.
With the club’s infrastructure and experienced manager, expect Osauna to retain their status for another season.
