Real Madrid vs Osasuna
2016/17 Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 10 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid.
Real Madrid got out of jail as Toni Kroos struck home in the 81st minute to give them a 2-1 win over Celta Vigo on match day 2 of the 2016/17 La Liga season. However, the win gave them 6 points from the opening two games and also registered their 14 consecutive La Liga wins.
While the newly promotes Osasuna failed to win in their opening two games of the season. They started with a promising 1-1 draw away at Malaga, but succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at home to Real Sociedad on the match day 2. They shouldn’t bother this as their main priority will be to stay as far as possible from the relegation zone.

Real Madrid vs Osasuna: Prediction
There are no doubts that Real Madrid will get a win here and will score at least 2 goals. But to pick a bet is quite hard as the bookmakers have made Real Madrid heavy favourites and odds for most markets are pretty low.
However the best bets I can recommend for this match is over 1.5 goals in first half, which is priced at 1.66. An alternate option is handicap Real Madrid (-1) for the first half at 1.95. However the second bet involves high risk.
