Osasuna vs Real Betis
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 21st October 2016,
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Estadio El Sadar, Pamplona.
Osasuna have finally managed to earn their first win of the season when they eventually came on top in the 5 goal thriller at Eibar last weekend. Sergio Leon was the star of the show who struck twice in the first half and was a constant menace to the Eibar defense throughout the night. Osasuna have drawn 3 and lost 4 of their previous 7 game and are currently 19th in the league table.
Real Betis were thrashed 6-1 by Real Madrid on the weekend which is an understatement of their poor form so far this season. There is only one point that separates them from the relegation zone at the moment. The positives are that they have already played the heavyweights Real Madrid and Barcelona. And it’s time for them to accumulate some valuable points and look for a safe place on the top half of the table.

Osasuna vs Real Betis: Prediction
Both teams are in some similar kind of form at the moment, but the recent results favor Osasuna as they have finally ended their win-less run in the league. They will be confident when they take on a Betis side who have plenty of problems on their own.
While Gus Poyet managed Betis side have already lost in 3 of their 4 away games this season. And they have a poor record against Osasuna while playing away from home. Their defense is also a big let-down as they already shipped in 18 goals so far this season.
This once again makes the home side favourites for a win here and we believe Osasuna will profit from their new found confidence and belief.
