Osasuna - Sevilla

PICK: Sevilla AH -1,00 @1,89 PINNACLE 5/10

Match between 20th placed Osasuna and 2nd placed Sevilla will be played on El Sadar in Pamplona and it will start at 12:00.

Osasuna is having a rough time in La Liga and if they will continue performing like this, then I think that they have really poor chances to avoid relegation this season. It's true that they played draw in last two matches, but for example against Valencia, they were 1 goal behind (2-3) and Parejo missed penalty for 2-4 in last minutes and Osasuna scored luckily for 3-3 in last seconds of the game. In last match they drawed in Granada, which is also not enough as Granada is one of clubs also in relegation zone. They will miss suspended Garcia, they are still without first goalkeeper Nauzet, while also De las Cuevas is not prepared for whole 90 minutes. 

Sevilla showed their strenght in last round, beating Real Madrid at home. That things are even better for them, the winning goal was scored by new star of the club - Jovetić, who will be great reinforcement for Andalusians in my opinion. Sevilla started season solid, but their main problem were away matches where they are traditionally poor. Looks that things started changing with Sampaoli. Looks that he added "fire" in his players and they looks crazily motivated also away from Sanchez Pizjuan. They have some injured players, but main players are here and except maybe pushing Jovetic in first eleven, no bigger changes are expected. 

In my opinion, Osasuna will need to search points otherwhere. Sevilla proved against Real Madrid that they are serious contenders for the title and with good form of Barcelona recently, they could not afford loosing points against the poorest team in the league. Osasuna is one of the poorest teams in finishing chances in team. Sevilla will be in possession, product of that will be more created chances and I believe that also difference on the score sheet.

FT: 3-4 void
