On Saturday night, Osasuna and Real Sociedad clash at the Estadio El Sadar as two teams in contrasting form meet in La Liga.Osasuna form guide
The team from Pamplona’s poor recent form continued last time out, as a 3-1 defeat at Villarreal made it four games without a victory in La Liga. The loss was also their third in the four winless league games.
A leaky defence has played a significant role in that poor recent league form, as Arrasate’s team has conceded at least two goals in all three of their recent Liga defeats.
The poor recent run of form has seen Osasuna drop to 14th place in the table, having picked up just 14 points in the Spanish top flight this season.
Osasuna have even found home wins in short supply of late in La Liga, as they have won just one of their previous seven games at El Sadar while suffering four defeats in the poor run.Real Sociedad form guide
La Real took their recent unbeaten run to four games after a goalless midweek draw against Salzburg in the Champions League. The draw may have ended a three-game winning run, but spirits will still be high in the visitor’s camp.
The side from San Sebastian’s recent record in La Liga will give them cause for optimism, as they have won six of their previous nine matches while suffering just two defeats against Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
La Real have the definition of an inconsistent recent away record in the Spanish top-flight, winning two, drawing two and losing two of their previous six Liga games on their travels.
What has been consistent in their recent away games in the Spanish top-flight has been goals scored, as there have been over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five outings.What am I backing?
Osasuna have looked low on confidence lately, while Sociedad’s recent league form has been promising. The bet I am backing is the away victory.
