Osasuna play host to Atletico Madrid in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio El Sadar on Wednesday afternoon.
Osasuna come into this match sitting in 11th place with 35 points and a record of 8 wins, 11 draws and 9 losses after a 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad in their last match. In the draw with Sociedad, Adrian gave Osasuna the lead in the 29th minute from the penalty spot, and Osasuna would hold onto the lead until Real Sociedad would tie the game at one just after the hour mark of the match. Sociedad had 65% possession and a 4-1 advantage in terms of shots on goal, but neither side would be able to produce a game-winning goal the rest of the way, leading the two sides to share the points at the final whistle. Chimy Avila leads Osasuna in scoring with 9 goals while Roberto Torres and Ruben Garcia each had 6 goals with Torres adding a team-high 7 assists this season.
Atletico Madrid on the other hand, sit in 6th place with a record of 11 wins, 13 draws and 4 losses, picking up where they left off pre-break with what would be a third consecutive draw after a 1-1 tie with Athletic Bilbao in their last match. In the tie with Bilbao, Atleti fell behind in the 37th minute but Diego Costa would tie the game at one just two minutes later. The two sides would trade blows the rest of the way, but neither side would end up finding the game-winner down the stretch, leading to a sharing of the spoils at full time. Alvaro Morata leads Atletico Madrid in scoring with 8 goals while Angel Correa has 5 goals and a team-high 6 assists and Koke has 5 assists as well this season. Jan Oblak is the top goalkeeper for Atletico Madrid, conceding 0.72 goals per 90 minutes with 11 clean sheets in 28 league appearances this season.
The draw is kind of tempting considering it’s been a reoccurring theme for Atletico as of late with a league-high 13 draws this season and 8 draws on the road. Osasuna’s also not the strongest home team in the league and there’s no home field advantage without fans in the stands. However, Atletico’s simply the better team here, despite their scoring woes, and they’ve owned Osasuna over the last couple of seasons, winning the last three meetings by a combined score of 8-0, so I’ll side with Atletico Madrid with the -1 handicap for some pretty decent plus money as well as Atletico to win with both teams to score – no for plus money as well.
