Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao
Date: Saturday, 24 October 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Sadar (Pamplona).
Osasuna’s mixed form in the campaign this season will hold them back in the upcoming match. The host is just one point ahead of the visitor in the table after five league appearances so far this term.
Los Rojillos has been unbeaten in the past two fixtures in the league, following a goalless draw on the road with Eibar last time out in the schedule.
Bilbao had a hard time at the start of the season with three losses within the five clashes. However, the 2-0 win at home against Levante after the double loss will improve the morale of the visitors.
Gaizka Garitano and his men had opened this season with an away defeat, and have only one win in their three fixtures on the road this term.
