Osasuna and Getafe meet on Wednesday in a game which is of greater significance for the visitors than the hosts. Getafe may be on 37 points which might yet be enough but they’ll be keen to mathematically secure safety before the final weekend and they could potentially be celebrating survival by the time of their trip back to Madrid.

For Osasuna, they do still have a tiny chance of getting the final European place and the fact they are still in the running for that at such an advanced stage in the season is testament to the solid campaign they’ve had. However it would take a minor miracle and a lot of favours elsewhere for the Pamplona side to clinch 7th so realistically Jagoba Arrasate will already be looking ahead to next season and may experiment a little in this game.

They come into this following a 1-1 draw at Espanyol at the weekend and their overall form is relatively mixed in keeping with the rest of their season. One man who has really hit form for Osasuna though is Ante Budimir. The Croatian striker scored in 6 straight league games between March and May. That run was finally broken on Sunday but he put in another strong all-round display and provided the assist for Kike Barja’s goal.

Getafe meanwhile come into this one in decent form with 3 straight clean sheets in LaLiga. However they did miss a pretty good opportunity to all but clinch survival at the weekend when they could only draw their home derby against Rayo Vallecano. There will be a few nerves now in the Geta camp with other struggling teams picking up wins and also given their only remaining home game is against Barcelona, with their away record much less convincing throughout the campaign.

They did finally win on the road for the first time this term in Vigo last month. That should give them some confidence heading into this one but they may look at the table and think that picking up a third straight draw would be a very decent outcome here. That would guarantee that they finish above both Levante and Alaves and they could even be celebrating survival by the end of Wednesday night should Mallorca lose to Sevilla.

Osasuna vs Getafe Predictions

Score Prediction: Osasuna 0-0 Getafe

This isn’t likely to be a classic by any means. Getafe appear content to just keep accumulating points and won’t take any risks here while Osasuna are still found lacking at times in the creative department, particularly against solid defensive sides such as the one they will face here. An early goal could change things of course, but if it doesn’t come, don’t rule out a third straight scoreless game for Getafe.
