Club Atlético Osasuna, usually known as Osasuna, is a Spanishmarker first division football club based in Pamplonamarker, Navarremarker, founded in 1920.

The team's home kit is red shirt, navy blue shorts, black socks with red back, whilst the away one is navy blue shirt, orange shorts and navy blue socks. Osasuna, which plays its home games at the Estadio Reyno de Navarramarker, means "health" in Basque.

History

Founded in 1920, Osasuna first reached Segunda División in 1932, making it to La Liga three seasons later.

They achieved their first ever UEFA Cup qualification in 1985-86, after finishing sixth, eventually reaching the third round in the 1990-91 edition. Finishing last in 1993-94, the side spent six years in the second level.

After a stellar 2005-06 domestic campaign, Osasuna made history by finishing in fourth place, synonymous with the chance of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League in the following season through play-off matches. This achievement was made all the more dramatic by the suspense that was maintained until the last day of the championship in which Osasuna and Sevilla were both vying for the fourth place. Both teams eventually ended the season with the same number of points but Osasuna got through due to their head-to-head record. However, Osasuna didn't make it to the Champions League group phase, as they were eliminated by Hamburg in the third qualifying round, leaving them to vie in the UEFA Cup for the fifth time in their history.

Osasuna were drawn in Group D of the UEFA Cup 2006-07 along with Parma, Lens, Odense and Heerenveen. They successfully qualified to the knock-out stage, finishing second in their group, and were drawn against Girondins Bordeaux, who had dropped into the UEFA Cup following an unsuccessful Champions League campaign. Osasuna progressed 1-0 on aggregate, drawing 0-0 away before winning 1-0 in Pamplona through an extra-time winner by Javad Nekounam.

Next up were Scottishmarker side Rangers, and the Spanish side again progressed, following a 1-1 draw in Scotland and a 1-0 win at home. They were drawn against Germanmarker giants Bayer Leverkusen in the quarter-finals. Regarded as severe underdogs, Osasuna not only progressed to the semifinals but did so in style. A 3-0 win in Germany had virtually sealed the tie, but Osasuna also won the second leg, 1-0.

In the last-four round, Osasuna was drawn against UEFA Cup 2006-07 current holders and fellow Spanish side Sevilla. Osasuna were 1-0 victors in the 1st leg at home, however the dream ended in the return leg. Sevilla recorded a 2-0 win, and returned to the final of the competition where they played another Spanish side - Espanyol - becoming winners on penalties.

In the following two seasons, Osasuna struggled mightily in the league. In 2008–09, it only avoided relegation in the final day: being in 18th place and going into the final matchday, home to Real Madrid, they fell behind 1–0, but came back with two goals (the decider courtesy of Juanfran, a merengue youth graduate) to remain in La Liga.
