Osasuna vs Cordoba
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Saturday, 13 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Estadio El Sadar (Pamplona).
After coming oh-so-close to securing promotion Play-offs last term, Osasuna have had an underwhelming start and now host Cordoba with just nine points to their name after eight games played. They have connected a three-game unbeaten streak since mid-September, though, and Arrasate will want his men to build on it!
Los Rojillos have indeed picked it up at the back and we’ve seen them bag a 1-0 win over Sporting Gijon and hold both Numancia and Real Zaragoza to draws, conceding just one goal in three outings. With that in mind, we now expect another strong challenge at Estadio El Sadar and Cordoba could be in trouble once again.
The visitors have only earned their first win last week as they shocked mid-table rivals Almeria in front of the home crowd, bouncing back from a more convincing 4-2 loss at Granada and coming closer to escaping the red zone early in the new season. However, Cordoba have largely struggled to perform on the road – suffering three losses in three trips this term – and this could prove costly once again.
Osasuna vs Cordoba: Head-to-head
- Osasuna have earned two wins and two draws in the sides’ last four head-to-head clashes.
- Cordoba have last beaten the rivals back 2000, snatching a 0-2 win at this ground.
- We’ve seen just four goals in four matchups over the past three years.
Osasuna vs Cordoba: Prediction
We will now back Osasuna to build on such performances against Cordoba and bounce back to the winning ways once again, where a Home win looks like more of a banker bet at 1.66. We do believe they have what it takes to outclass the rivals and start climbing the table here.
However, we should be in for another narrow contest and we’ll also go for Under 2.5 goals FT, which comes at 1.66 too and attracts many big hitters already. Both have based success on tough defensive displays and we should now be in for another such occasion at Estadio El Sadar.

Home win @ 1.66
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66.
