Due to rescheduling earlier on in the campaign, just two weeks have passed since these two sides last met in the league, an encounter that saw Granada emerge victorious in Andalusia.
In a campaign that has seen Granada build on a fantastic first season back in the top flight, Diego Martinez's side come into this game on the brink of breaking into the division's Europa League spots.
Los Nazaries are currently seventh in the standings and three points on Sunday afternoon could propel them above Real Sociedad into sixth place.
Martinez's men have established themselves as a robust outfit in La Liga this season, displaying some of the best attacking football in the division.
Granada's resilience was perfectly reflected in their 2-2 draw with Villarreal last time out in the league.
Instead of losing their nerve after Moi Gomez converted a 65th-minute penalty, The Andalusians took the Yellow Submarine by the scruff of the neck and fought hard for an equaliser, which eventually came in the form of a wonder goal courtesy of Kenedy.
Still, successes aside, Granada's campaign has had its hitches too. The team's away form has been particularly poor, with Martinez's men only picking up eight points on their travels so far this season.
If Granada are to come away from Pamplona with all three points, the team will have to push Osasuna hard at El Sadar.
Aside from their loss to Granada earlier this month, Osasuna have just about managed to stop the rot in recent weeks, drawing five out of their last six league games after a run of six defeats in seven prior to that.
Still, when you are down and out at the foot of the table, draws are not even as remotely significant as wins, and wins are proving particularly hard to come by for Jagoba Arrasate's team.
Last time out against fellow strugglers Valencia in the league, Osasuna came close to picking up their first win since October, but were eventually undone by an Unai Garcia own goal.
Currently 19th in the standings, a crucial win on Sunday could see Arrasate's men haul themselves out of the bottom three, but it could be asking too much of a side that has only scored 16 goals so far this season.
Osasuna La Liga form: DDDDLD

Defender David Garcia will be available once again after serving his suspension.
In comparison, Martinez will be without Yan Brice, who was sent off against Villarreal.
Osasuna possible starting lineup:
Herrera; Nacho Vidal, U Garcia, Roncaglia, Cruz; Torres, Moncayola, Lucas Torro, Calvo, R Garcia; Calleri
Granada possible starting lineup:
Silva; Foulquier, Duarte, Sanchez, Neva; Machis, Angel Montoro, Milla, Herrera, Kenedy; Suarez
We say: Osasuna 1-3 Granada
Osasuna are a tough team to break down, just ask Zinedine Zidane. However, Granada do not mess around and with the likes of Kenedy, Suarez and Soldado all likely to play a part, it seems unlikely that Arrasate's men will be able to keep the Andalusians at bay.
