Oriol Riera (Osasuna)

Football News

After joining from Alcorocon in the Segunda Division, Riera displayed enough to leave any prospective buyers confident that the twenty-seven year-old striker is good enough to play in La Liga.

His debut season in the top flight ended with thirteen goals, nearly half of Osasuna's league total. His undoubted strength is his ability in the air, winning 5.8 aerial duals per match, and providing a handful for La Liga defences.

This is a higher average that both Athletic Bilbao's Aritz Aduriz, 5.7, and Juventus' Fernando Llorente, who are both lauded for their aerial ability. Riera's exit from Osasuna could be sped up by the overdue wages due to the players, in a grave looking situation for the club and its supporters.
