Osasuna vs Valencia
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 27 October 2019
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Sadar (Pamplona).
Osasuna was expected to struggle in the top division, considering their status as the new entrants into the league. But the squad responded to their doubters in fantastic manner, as they easily integrated into the La Liga within the first few match-days itself. While it does not mean that the squad has been dominating the competition, they surely are proving a little hard to beat.
This Sunday, equipped with the home advantage, the cavalry will present a tough fight for Valencia, who’s in the hunt for some points to improve their position in the table.

Osasuna vs Valencia Prediction
Celades’s men showed grit the last day as they took the fight to the Wanda Metropolitano and returned with a point. Take note that they did it despite going a man down due to a red card, and with an 82nd-minute equalizer.
Meanwhile, Los Rojillos lost on the road the previous day, against Granada. The former did try a rough approach for the win but had to settle for the loss, with an additional five yellow cards.
It once again underlined their need for the comforts of home in order to perform well. In fact, the cavalry has returned just two wins from their preceding ten fixtures and had even failed to score in four of their past six.
On the other hand, their counterparts lost just once from their last eight overall games and had remained unbeaten in ten of their previous thirteen road trips too.
Most importantly, Los Ches have dominated this opponent in recent meetings, and this further magnifies their chances for this fixture.
However, as said earlier, Los Rojillos are a different beast once in front of the home crowd, and with them currently on a 22-game unbeaten run here, it would be unwise for the visitors to expect a clean sheet.
