Osasuna vs Sevilla Prediction
A single point is all Osasuna can show for their efforts in the past three matches. They managed a 1-1 draw with Getafe, before getting trounced 2-0 against Athletic Bilbao while Mallorca won 0-2.Osasuna won three of their previous six matches at Estadio El Sadar in the La Liga. They drew one and suffered two defeats, scoring seven goals to seven against.
A top half finish is the dream for Osasuna, but neutral spectators have them down for a season in the lower end of the La Liga.
Sevilla managed to win just once in their past six away games in the La Liga. On top of winning once they also drew four as well as losing one, while scoring six time and letting in six.
While a title race is perhaps a too optimistic a longthrow, a podium finish does not look beyong Sevilla, should they manage to catch a strong momentum.
