Osasuna vs Valladolid Prediction
Osasuna tasted success in the Copa Del Rey yet again after they took down Haro Deportivo on the road last week by a 2-1 scoreline. However, the hosts have not been coping well in their La Liga campaign as of late.
At the moment, the home side are without a win in their past four fixtures in the top flight, the last of which saw them hold Celta Vigo to a 1-1 draw away from home.
Nevertheless, with twenty-four points to their name, Osasuna are currently sitting twelfth on the ladder.
On the other hand, Real Valladolid were given a run for their money in their respective Copa Del Rey clash with Marbella and managed to pick up the win only on penalties after regulation time.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors are winless in their previous seven La Liga encounters on the trot. Miserably, they have garnered no more than four measly points from a possible twenty-one.
Furthermore, the guests have not come out on top in any of their outings since their 2-0 win over Espanyol back in late September. Taking into account that the visiting contingent have also been at the losing end in each of their past three trips here, count on Osasuna to make no mistake in securing all three points this weekend.
In addition, Real Valladolid have been virtually invisible in the final third, especially in their outings lately. They have not found the back of the net in any of past three trips on the road.
Moreover, four of their previous six h2h meetings here have witnessed fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. Considering that the reverse fixture of this matchup was also a low scoring affair, count on Osasuna to seal the win with no more than a goal or two at the most.
