Osasuna vs Levante predictions, H2H and match preview for this Friday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as two bottom half sides clash in Pamplona.
Osasuna vs Levante Preview
The opening game of matchday 21 in La Liga comes from El Sadar where Osasuna and Levante meet. The visitors are currently one place and one point better off but both sides will just be starting to look over their shoulder with some of the teams at the bottom starting to show signs of life. Defeat for either side here would only add to those relegation worries.
Osasuna have hit a rough patch for pretty much the first time in the season, their first back at this level. They’ve won just 1 of their last 8 league games and are winless in 5. Significantly, their home form has just started to fade having previously set a club record for unbeaten home league games. Since reaching that mark, they’ve taken just 2 points from 4 league outings at El Sadar including a frustrating goalless draw with Real Valladolid last time out.
While Osasuna remain the division’s draw specialists, no side has drawn fewer games this term in La Liga than Levante. Just 2 of their matches have ended level with the others producing 8 wins and 10 defeats. You never know quite what you are going to get from the Valencia club who have conceded 16 goals in their last 8 league games and have lost 4 of their last 6.
Osasuna came from 2-0 down to win in the Copa del Rey in midweek which might just give them a lift heading into this. Chimy Avila remains in fine form up top and they are boosted by the return of key full-back Pervis Estupiñan who missed their last league game due to suspension. They face a Levante side who are likely to match their 4-4-2 but should be much more positive than Valladolid when they visited El Sadar last weekend.
Osasuna vs Levante Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Osasuna
Levante’s results are tough to predict and they do tend to pick up a result when you least expect it. However with Osasuna close to full strength again here, the Pamplona side look like they might have the edge against a Levante outfit that is starting to leak goals again after a slightly more encouraging start to the season in that regard.
