Osasuna vs Valencia
Spanish La Liga
Date: Monday, 9th January 2017
Kick-off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Estadio El Sadar, Pamplona.
Osasuna and Valencia will close the 17th round of Primeira Division in a super important match for both sides on Monday evening at El Sadar. The hosts just cannot allow a defeat which would significantly complicate their difficult situation since they are currently rock-bottomed being five points behind Valencia, who are just on the brink of the red zone. Osasuna made the change on the bench hiring Petar Vasiljevic as the new manager. The Serbian will try to forget his debut since the team suffered a disaster losing 0 – 3 to Eibar on home court on Tuesday evening.
Voro can’t be any happier with his start of the New Year since Valencia are already out of Copa del Rey after losing the first leg with 1 – 4 to Celta Vigo at Mestalla. The Spanish manager will be without three very important players in the visit to Pamplona since Nani and Garay are injured, while Joao Cancelo serves the suspension for being sent off in the last Primeira game.
Osasuna vs Valencia: Head-to-Head Stats
Valencia have been much more successful in head to head clashes, but they are miles away from where they were a couple of years ago. The Bats will be looking to keep the tradition since they are undefeated in last 12 matches with Osasuna, winning most of them. This will be easier said than done looking at their poor form at the back as they have conceded at least a single goal in each of the 18 matches in all competitions since the start of the season.
Osasuna vs Valencia: Prediction
