Osasuna vs Villarreal Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Osasuna come into the game on the back of a poor form, as they suffered a fourth consecutive league defeat, following the 3-0 loss against Espanyol. Espanyol capitalised on Oier’s 17th minute red card to secure a comfortable win. Felipe Caicedo, Jose Juardo, and Gerard Marino scored the goals for Espanyol. Caicedo missed a penalty which could have enhanced the score even further. Villarreal’s resurgence was halted with a dramatic 3-2 loss against Real Madrid. Villarreal scored through Trigueros and Cedric Bakambu early in the first half. Gareth Bale’s goal pulled one back for Real Madrid, who equalised through a controversial penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo. Alvaro Morata scored late and secured a controversial win for Madrid.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Villarreal are unbeaten in the last five league encounters played away from home. Even though the club has struggled to score goals, it has alternatively lead to an incredible defensive strength. Villarreal have managed three wins and a draw in the games against Osasuna since 2011. I would back the Yellow Submarines for a win.

Osasuna have conceded three or more goals in four out of the last five home matches. However, they are up against a Villarreal team who are more than happy with a 1-0 win. I see a lot of value in backing over 1.5 goals.

Villarreal to win – 11/10

Total goals over 1.5 – 4/11

Osasuna Preview

Osasuna might start to accept relegation from the La Liga after falling nine points behind safety. Still waiting for their second win of the season, Osasuna have already been cut adrift from the position of safety. It would take an astronomical turnaround in fortunes for the club to stay in the league. It is a matter of pride for Osasuna from now till the end of season. The key for interim coach Petar Vasiljevic would be to arrest the poor defensive form. Osasuna have conceded three or more goals in their last four league matches.

Villarreal Preview

Villarreal have shown signs of returning to their best in recent weeks. After back-to-back 1-0 wins against Real Sociedad and Roma, the club came within touching distance of creating a shock upset against Real Madrid. Despite the loss against the table leaders, Villarreal will not be too disappointed considering their impressive performance against Zinedine Zidane’s team. The club once again seem to have achieved their defensive superiority, which has seen them concede the fewest goals (18) in La Liga. Injuries to key players like Nicola Sansone has certainly played a role in the club’s dip in form.
