Osasuna vs Elche
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Monday, 29 November 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Sadar.

Osasuna had a strong start to their season, but currently they are going through a rather dull streak. They are in desperate need for a huge win, and will be counting on this upcoming encounter at home a lot.

The reason being, they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the competition. Not only are Elche placed third to last in the table (in the relegation zone), but they also have a worrying h2h record against this rival.

As things stand, expect a win for Osasuna this Monday at the Estadio El Sadar.

Osasuna vs Elche Prediction & Analysis

Osasuna lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day. But it was a close encounter against the defending champions Atleti, and importantly, the winning goal had come in the 87th minute.

Going on, they were unbeaten in 17 of their past 23 overall fixtures, and in the process they had even gone on separate four-match, and six-game winning streaks.

On the other hand, Elche lost 0-3 at home against Betis. They are also on a six-fixture winless run, and had remained so in 14 of their past 16 games. Note that they had also conceded two or more goals in five of the past six matches.

Considering these observations, expect a win for Osasuna this Monday.
