Osasuna vs Granada Preview
First up on Sunday in La Liga we have a match between two sides that were only promoted to this level last year. Both have equipped themselves brilliantly in their first seasons back in the top flight and neither looks to be in danger of even being dragged into the relegation scrap.
Osasuna picked up an important win last time out, as they surprised Athletic Club with a 1-0 win in a Basque derby at San Mames. They have a 10 point advantage on the relegation zone heading into this game and another win here would propel them above their opponents and into the top half. They’ve not been quite as convincing at home in recent weeks though with 4 goals conceded in 2 of their last 4 outings at El Sadar.
Granada won’t offer the same kind of threat that the teams who inflicted those defeats managed to offer though. They’ve been beaten to nil in each of their last 6 away games in La Liga and it’s 8 straight away league defeats overall. That decline has partly been the result of a host of difficult fixtures but it is becoming a problem for Diego Martinez, although not one that is likely to have severe consequences this season at least.
Enric Gallego and Jose Arnaiz are likely to lead the line for Osasuna with top scorer Chimy Avila out for the season. They should be at or very close to full strength apart from that. Granada meanwhile will be bolstered by the returns of first team regulars Roberto Soldado and Domingos Duarte from suspensions and are likely to match Osasuna’s 4-4-2.
Osasuna vs Granada Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Osasuna
Granada’s away form is so poor that it’s hard to fancy them on the road anywhere right now. They’ve not scored an away league goal since October and as a result you have to fancy Osasuna to get the job done with home advantage in this one.
