Osasuna vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 22 May 2021
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET,
Venue: Estadio El Sadar (Pamplona).
Osasuna has nothing but a top-half finish to fight for, and their recent form doesn’t seem enough to trouble Real Sociedad sitting at the fifth spot on the La Liga table. On the contrary, the guest has stakes in the game and will probably come in with all guns blazing in the fixture on Saturday.
The hosts lost three of their last five matches in the campaign. Their lone win in that period came at home against a promoted team in the mix. Their previous encounter was on the road and lost to Atletico Madrid with a 2-1 scoreline in their schedule.
Real Sociedad, in the meantime, will not risk their Europa League berth as an unfavorable result here might swap their places within the promotion zone, given the teams behind them better their result in the final match. They will visit on the back of a 4-1 win at home against the likes of Valladolid.

Osasuna vs Real Sociedad Prediction
