Osasuna vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Osasuna made light work of Lorca Deportiva in the Copa Del Rey last week, with three different players finding the back of the net to post a 3-0 scorecard. Be that as it may, the hosts are without a taste of success in their last two Laliga matchups on the trot, the most recent of which was a 2-0 defeat to Athletico Madrid on the road.
The home side are now sitting tenth on the ladder, six points adrift of their foes for the weekend.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad smashed eight unanswered goals past Becerril in their respective Copa Del Rey clash, making them unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions.
The guests have also admitted defeat just once in their past six fixtures in the first division. Which, to their defense, was against the mighty Los Blancos themselves.
It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have been adamant in their outings this season. They have stumbled just thrice on the road so far. And have picked up the win in half of their previous four as well.
Meanwhile, Osasuna are without a victory in their past two games at home. Taking into account that they have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last three clashes with this foe here either, Real Sociedad are sizing up to be the front runners to come away with all three points this weekend.
However, determined to salvage at least a point, Osasuna have shared the spoils four times at home this term. Considering that two of their previous three head to head meetings here have also ended as a tie, the safest punt to back would have to be a double chance.
In addition, Real Sociedad have failed to get their names on the scoresheet just once in their last six Laliga outings.
At the same time, Osasuna have scored eleven goals from their last five games here. Moreover, all of the last five games at this stadium have witnessed both teams find the back of the net together.
Hence, expect neither side to keep a clean sheet come Sunday.
