The two teams enter the match at San Mames Barria with two points separating them in the La Liga standings.

The sides seem to be evenly matched, but Osasuna can leapfrog Athletic Bilbao in the table with a win on Monday. They will, of course, be eager to do just that, the question is though, how will the hosts respond to the threat?

Athletic Bilbao vs Osasuna Prediction

Athletic Bilbao Form

Athletic Bilbao look good before their upcoming match, in which they seek to remain unbeaten. In their last three matches, they first beat Alzira by 0-2, before drawing 0-0 with Real Betis. They were back as winners last time out, when they took out Eldense 1-6. It has been a bit hit-and-miss for Athletic Bilbao but at least mostly hit, as they put four wins on the board in their previous six La Liga matches. They didn't draw any matches, but lost twice, scoring 11 goals while conceding four.

Not many people predicted Athletic Bilbao for medals, but if they keep producing results, they might spring a surprise on the league.

Osasuna Form

Osasuna have been a bit bleak in their last three matches, although it started with a 1-2 win against Celta Vigo. Unable to follow that up, they went down 1-2 against Barcelona, before handing over all three points in a 2-0 defeat against Real Sociedad. In their last six away matches in the La Liga, Osasuna won twice, while also recording two draws. They endured two defeats in this run, with a scoreline from these matches saying seven goals conceded and five scored.

A top half finish seem very possibe for Osasuna who have been a surprise package with a string of good performances.

With Athletic Bilbao in relatively good shape these days, we aim for the home win, when they take on Osasuna. The value lies with the former, with form a little too dubious for the visitors.

Athletic Bilbao have taken ten points from their last six games against teams from the top half of the La Liga table. They won three of these matches with a scoreline of five goals to seven. Osasuna took one win from their last seven games against teams from the top half of the La Liga table. They collected four points, scored five goals and conceded 11.
