Osasuna vs Malaga Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Osasuna remained at the bottom of the table after a 4-3 loss against Sevilla in their last La Liga match. Despite a defeat, interim boss Petar Vasiljevic will take a lot of positives, as they lead twice against a title chasing outfit. Osasuna’s first lead came through an early goal from Sergio Leon while an own goal by Iborra in the second half once again put the team ahead. Kenan’s injury time goal, though, was only a consolation. Marcela Romero remains winless as Malaga coach, but the team only suffered a narrow 2-1 loss against Real Madrid. Malaga could have easily caused an upset if they had been more clinical.

Osasuna Preview

Vasiljevic suffered his first defeat as the interim boss, but his Osasuna team came close to causing an upset against a title chasing team. Vasiljevic has seen his team go close to a win on a couple of occasions, but inability to shutout the opposition has cost them dear. Conceding four goals against Sevilla once again made the club the worst defensive team in the division – a record shared with Granada. Osasuna, though, have the best scoring record (20 goals) amongst teams in and around the relegation zone. Vasiljevic will be aware that any team with a good scoring touch is not far away from a win.

Malaga Preview

Malaga extended their losing streak to four consecutive La Liga games, and the latest loss against Real Madrid saw the club slide down to 14th place in the table – a steep drop as Malaga were pushing for a top 10 place only at the start of December. Home form has been the only saviour, as Malaga still remain without an away win even though the season is at its midway point. The arrival of former Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis on a free transfer could shore up in defence, which has conceded two goals on an average in the away matches.

Osasuna Team News

Fausto is suspended for the match. Didier Digard (cruciate ligament) and Miguel Flano (meniscus) remain on the sidelines as long-term injury concerns.

Malaga Team News

Zdravko Kuzmanovic (Achilles tendon) and Sandro (hamstring) are certainly out with injuries. Youssef En-Nesyri and Bakary Kone are at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. Juan Carlos (collateral ligament), Miguel Torres (thigh), and Federico Ricca (calf) are doubtful for participation.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Malaga have been extremely poor on the road this season, but the team performed well enough to get at least a point against Real Madrid in the last match. Osasuna have managed to just one win over Malaga in the last six games at the El Sadar. In fact, four of the last six meetings between the two teams at this ground have finished as a draw. I would back this game to end as a stalemate.

The last four home games for Osasuna and the last four away matches for Malaga have each produced more than 2.5 goals. I see a lot of value in backing over 2.5 goals in total.

Draw – 23/10

Total goals over 2.5 – 21/20
