Osasuna and Real Valladolid face each other at the Estadio El Sadar on Saturday in a game from the 20th round of La Liga. Stay with us and our La Liga predictions for this fixture.
Osasuna are doing solid for a newcomer this season. The Pamplonians are playing to secure their survival and to avoid a possible return to Segunda. So far they have success in this because they are 12th in the league with 24 points won. Their record in La Liga goes like this: 5 wins, 9 draws and 5 losses.
Osasuna are not in their best shape lately, though. In their last four matches Arrasate’s boys won just two points. One of these two points was won in the previous round when they visited Celta in Vigo and went home with a 1-1 draw. Ezequiel Avila won the point for the Pamplonians with a late equaliser in the 83th minute.
Real Valladolid on the other hand are 14th in the league with 21 points won and a record of 4 wins, 9 draws and 6 losses. Valladolid’s current form is interesting, because in their last five games they made four draws. Sergio’s team have difficulties to win, but it’s also very hard for Valladolid’s opponents to beat them, too.
Last week Valladolid hosted Leganes at home, but the game ended without a winner – 2-2. The Turkish striker Enes Unal was the big hero for the hosts, scoring twice in Pichu Cuellar’s net.
On Saturday Real Valladolid will have to do without the services of Nacho Martinez and Javier Sanchez, who are recovering from injuries.
That’s our La Liga predictions for the fixture between Osasuna and Real Valladolid in Pamplona this Saturday. Osasuna are playing at home here, but have it in mind that the visitors have lost just one of their last five matches in La Liga.
