Villarreal defender Gonzalo Rodriguez expects a major battle against Osasuna.

Osasuna have lost Juanfran to Atletico Madrid this week, but Rodriguez still expects a stiff test.

"Osasuna always do well at El Madrigal, but every year is different. We will try to continue doing things well at home so we can get the three points," Gonzalo said.

"They are strong in the air and we will have to be very focused to get the win."
