From Pamplona there are reactions to the semifinal tie with Athletic that generate a lot of commotion on social networks
Osasuna has received almost euphoria the semifinal tie of Cup against Athletic. A somewhat arrogant reaction, since, although they have avoided Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, Athletic is the second team with the most titles in this competition and has already played in the last 5 semifinals of the tournament.
But Osasuna goes to his own in this Copa del Rey. Betis has been charged at home and Sevilla FC at El Sadar after extensions. He has proven to compete one on one against anyone and he clings to the first leg at home in order to obtain a good result that allows him to travel to San Mamés with some ease.
Diario de Navarra warms up Osasuna Athletic in the Cup
Beyond the reactions of the fans through social networks, what has bothered the most in Bilbao is what has been read in one of the main media: the Diario de Navarra. A headline of those that stings. “Osasuna avoids a great”, alluding to the Cup matchup with Athletic.
The dislike of Athletic in Pamplona is already known. You just have to see the number of Navarrese players that Athletic has. Sancet, Berenguer, Muniain, Raúl García… Tajonar’s youth system is very recurrent when signing for Athletic and that generates a feeling of constant rejection.
The arrogant bad counselor of Osasuna
That headline of Diario de Navarra plays with that mentality of the Osasuna follower who can’t even see Athletic. The historical reality is that Athletic has a lot more experience than Osasuna in the Copa del Rey. Athletic is the only one, precisely along with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, that has never been relegated to Second.
Therefore, it can also be considered a great one for all purposes. In this type of playoffs, pride is very bad company. Osasuna could lose to an Athletic that is much more used to reaching these rounds of the Copa del Rey. What is guaranteed is the show and the color between hobbies.
