Osasuna vs Getafe Preview
Getafe’s European push will face a stern test at El Sadar this Sunday as they take on an in-form Osasuna side. The Pamplona outfit are no longer in any danger of relegation and that’s a fantastic achievement in their first season back at this level.
Their form over the past week or so has been all the more remarkable given they resumed the season with more injuries than any other team in LaLiga. Full credit must go to Jagoba Arrasate and his team who have reeled off 3 straight wins heading into this game – seeing off Alaves, Leganes and Eibar. Enric Gallego and Ruben Garcia have chipped in with some important strikes to help cure their recent goalscoring problems and they will head into this match full of confidence.
As for Getafe, they’ve only managed to win one of their six games since the resumption. Their Champions League qualification hopes now look slim but they are still very well placed to clinch Europa League football for the second season running. That would still be a fine achievement for Pepe Bordalas and his side but it would be tinged with disappointment having put themselves in a strong position to secure a top four finish.
In terms of team news, Osasuna are weakened by the suspension of Enric Gallego which should leave Ruben Garcia operating just off lone striker Marc Cardona in attack. Getafe should return to their usual 4-4-2 having played with a five man midfield against Real Madrid in midweek but personnel changes should be relatively limited.
Osasuna vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
A draw looks the most likely outcome here. Osasuna take great form into the game but the absence of fans will hit them hard at El Sadar and we probably shouldn’t read too much into their solitary home win since the restart – against Segunda-bound Leganes. Getafe are tough to beat but aren’t playing well enough to suggest they are in the kind of shape that will allow them to leave Pamplona with maximum points.
