Espanyol vs Osasuna Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Espanyol are once again experiencing a downturn in form after a 2-0 loss against Real Madrid. This was the second consecutive defeat for Quique Flores’ men. Goals from Alvaro Morata in the first half and Gareth Bale in the second half condemned Espanyol to this defeat. Osasuna fell to yet another defeat in the league after a 3-0 loss against Celta de Vigo. Pione Sisto scored the opening goal after 27 minutes, and Celta de Vigo were able to capitalise on Osasuna pushing forward in the latter stages throughout late goals from Jozabed and Iago Aspas.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Espanyol had a brilliant record against Osasuna at the RCDE Stadium. However, their last victory against this opponent at home was back in the 2010 season. Since then, Osasuna have been unbeaten, a run that includes two wins. Osasuna, with just one win this season, have lost three of their last five away games. The upcoming game may be the occasion when the balance once again swings in favour of Espanyol, who possess a strong home record.

Four out of the last five home matches for Espanyol have seen over 2.5 goals. Osasuna’s last five matches in the league have produced 2.5 goals. Hence, I see a strong value in backing over 2.5 goals in the game.

Espanyol win – 4/6

Total goals over 2.5 – 43/40

Espanyol Preview

The three consecutive wins towards the end of January and early February gave Espanyol hope of finishing in the Europa League qualification spots. Yet, they have truly evaporated in recent weeks following back-to-back losses. Much of the success for Espanyol this season has been built on their form at the RCDE Stadium. However, the recent loss against Real Sociedad brought an end to an eight-match unbeaten run at home. The rosy period with regards to the away form was during the months of October and November, as the team has managed just one win in the last five away games.

Osasuna Preview

Osasuna’s slim hopes of avoiding relegation may have evaporated completely following the loss against Celta de Vigo last weekend. The club are still waiting for the first win at the El Sadar. The solitary win this season came away from home against Eibar. Sergio Leon happens to be the only bright spot for Osasuna. The 28-year-old has been in sparkling form over the last few weeks, although he failed to shine in the recent game against Celta de Vigo. After conceding 14 goals in the last five league matches, Osasuna have taken the mantle as the worst defence in the La Liga.
