Hamburg test
Juanlu will hope his new club can reach the UEFA Champions League group stage, although German outfit Hamburger SV stand in their way. He has experience of the competition with Betis last season before being loaned to Segunda División side Albacete, where he scored three goals in 17 games. "I am happy because this deal is good for everyone, especially for me because I've joined a team that's in the Champions League qualifying round." Osasuna finished fourth in Spain last term.
