Osasuna vs. Sevilla Tips, Preview and Predictions

Osasuna vs. Sevilla, La Liga

Second-placed Sevilla travel to Pamplona where they face Osasuna in their first clash after the mini-winter break in La Liga. Jagoba Arrasate’s men are having a solid campaign and are currently closer to the European places than to the danger zone, but they lost eight of their last nine games against the Andalusians, who are just four points behind league leaders Real Madrid.

Osasuna v Sevilla Predictions and Preview

Sevilla have the chance to extend their unbeaten run in La Liga to nine games on Saturday evening when Julen Lopetegui’s men face Osasuna at Estadio El Sadar. However, the Andalusians have only two wins in their last five games, after drawing the other three, so it is a bit surprising that they are still only four points behind Real Madrid in the title race.

Lopetegui’s side only managed a 2-2 draw at home against Celta Vigo in their last game, as they needed two late strikes from Alejandro Gomez and Olivier Torres to salvage a point. As things stand, Sevilla have the worst attacking record in the top four with o34 goals scored, but at the same time have the best defence in the league with only 16 conceded.

Osasuna, meanwhile, beat Granada 2-0 away from home in their last game and currently sit in 11th place. Arrasate’s men have been unspectacular but solid this term, so they definitely have the means to upset a Sevilla side that often struggled for goals in the first half of the campaign.

Osasuna vs. Sevilla full time result odds

Sevilla brought in two attacking players in January with Anthony Martial and Tecatito Corona joining from Manchester United and Porto. While both players are not the most prolific ones, they should help Lopetegui’s cause and should further boast Sevilla’s chances for victory this wekeend.. The Andalusians are unbeaten (W8,D1) in their last nine games against Osasuna, so we are going with a win for the visitors in our Osasuna vs. Sevilla tips at 6/5.

Osasuna vs. Sevilla under 2.5 goals odds

The last three meetings between those teams saw under 2.5 goals being scored with Osasuna failing to find the back of the net in each of them. Considering that both sides are stronger in defence than they are in attack, a similar scenario can be expected this time, so go with under 2.5 goals at 8/15, while you can also combine this with NO in the Both Teams to Score market for combined odds of 33/20.  

Osasuna vs. Sevilla correct score odds

Osasuna vs. Sevilla first goalscorer odds

Rafa Mir failed to find the back of the net in his last three games for Sevilla, but the Spanish striker remains his side’s top scorer with six goals. The competition in the Andalusians attack is now becoming even more serious, so the 24-year-old would be eager to keep his place in the starting XI and is 6/1 to break the deadlock against Osasuna.
