Espanyol vs Osasuna Prediction

Espanyol failed to break free from their dismal winless streak last week and were forced to share the spoils with Getafe at home after both teams scored a goal apiece. The hosts are now without a taste of success in their previous four games in the La Liga and have garnered no more than one measly point from a possible twelve in the process.

With no more than nine points to their name, Espanyol are sitting nineteenth in a table of twenty. They are also just three points shy of hitting rock bottom in the cluster at the moment.

On the other hand, the visitors were deprived of a win in their most recent matchup too and were taken down by Athletic Bilbao at home by a 2-1 scorecard. Be that as it may, Osasuna are still sporting a solid ten-point cushion over their counterparts for the weekend, and are currently eleventh on the table.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been at the losing end just twice in their past six games in the first division. Furthermore, Osasuna are unbeaten in their last two outings as well.

In sharp contrast, Espanyol are yet to pick up a win on home soil. Hence, the visiting contingent are the favorites to secure all three points in this one.

However, four out of the last six trips on the road for Osasuna have seen the latter salvage no more than a point in each. As such, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing the visiting contingent.

Additionally, Espanyol have not had their scoring boots on at the RCDE Stadium. Shockingly, they have found the back of the net just thrice in their last seven games here.

Meanwhile, Osasuna have not been keen on racking up the goals tally away from home either and have scored just five of their seventeen goals so far on the road. Taking the aforementioned into consideration, expect fewer than 2.5 goals on the scorecards come Sunday.
