Atletico Madrid vs Osasuna Soccer Betting Prediction
Atlético Madrid are not doing this this season. Often considered as title contenders in recent seasons, the Colchoneros are not at the rendezvous this season and only point to a disappointing 7th place with 8 points behind the leaders. Besides, they’ve won only one of their last 6 La Liga games. It was against Espanyol more than a month ago (3-1). Since then, Diego Simeone’s men shared the points with Granada (1-1) before losing to Barça (0-1) and being again held in check last Friday (0-0). By cons, Wednesday evening, they won against Lokomotiv Moscow (2-0) in the Champions League.
For its part, Osasuna has a good season for his return to La Liga. Ruben Garcia’s partners are in 10th place with 23 points and already 10 points ahead of the first relegation. Recently, the promoted had lost to Bilbao (1-2) before recovering against Espanyol (2-4) and keeping in check Sevilla FC last week (1-1).
The staff for Atletico Madrid vs Osasuna
The Atlético are still orphans of their long-standing absent defenders Gimenez and Savic as well as the rough striker Diego Costa. On the other hand, the important Correa will return from suspension.
Osasuna will play with his third goalkeeper because he is deprived of the main candidate for the position Ruben and his usual replacement Sergio Herrera. In addition, the titular defenders Roncaglia, Aridane and Nacho Vidal, and the substitute Kike Barja will also be absent for this trip to the capital just like the titular in the middle Oier.
Atlético played this week while Osasuna was able to breathe.
