The Gers escaped with a barely-deserved 1-1 draw in the first meeting at Ibrox last week thanks to Brahim Hemdani's last-gasp equaliser.
Walter Smith's side were well below-par and now have a huge mountain to climb if they are to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
The Spanish outfit have been in good form of late and were only denied maximum points by a late equaliser in Sunday's 1-1 La Liga draw with Valencia.
Influential captain Barry Ferguson misses the game through suspension, while Andy Webster (knee), Steven Smith (groin) and Thomas Buffel (knee) are all out injured.
But keeper Alan McGregor returns after having his two-match ban following his dismissal against Hapoel Tel Aviv reduced to one.
Osasuna coach Jose Angel Ziganda has something of a selection headache ahead of the crunch clash at the Reyno de Navarra with no major injury concerns.
Only four of the players who began Sunday's game against Valencia figured in Glasgow.
Striker Bernardo Romeo is hoping to get the nod having started both the first leg and the Valencia match on the bench.
