Osasuna vs Sevilla Match Preview
Sevilla will look to keep their title challenge going when they visit the El Sadar to play Osasuna on Sunday.
Sevilla Match Form
After playing 15 games, Sevilla are third in the table. Only Barcelona and Real Madrid are above them, and both those teams are a point above Sevilla. Julen Lopetegui has enjoyed his first season in charge at the club. Under his management, Sevilla have won nine games so far in La Liga. Their last defeat came against Barcelona in the first week of October. Since then, they have avoided defeat in the next ten games in all competitions.
They hosted Leganes last Sunday and claimed a 1-0 win. Defender Diego Carlos scored the only goal of the game to hand his side the win. Sevilla dominated the game, and they were unlucky to score only once. Just like against Leganes, Sevilla have won many games by a close margin. Their goal difference is only +5, which fall short by a large margin compared to Barcelona and Real Madrid. They have scored 19 league goals, which is a department in which they can improve.
Lucas Ocampos has been their leading scorer in the La Liga with five goals to his name. The Argentine has significantly impressed and has become a key part of this Sevilla side. Striker Luuk de Jong has scored only twice in the league, and the summer signing needs to step up. Sevilla are going strong in the Europa League as well, and they have won all five group stage games so far.
Osasuna Form in recent matches
Osasuna have also impressed this season after promotion. They are currently in ninth place, which is not what was expected. Osasuna won the Segunda Division last season and gained promotion to the top flight. A slight chance of European places is also there, as Atletico Madrid in sixth place are just three points adrift. Osasuna have lost just once in their last six league games.
Espanyol were the opponents last time and Osasuna claimed a 4-2 victory. Even though Facundo Roncaglia was sent off for them, they won with relative ease in the end. Espanyol were leading at half-time, but Osasuna made it 3-1 and put the game to bed. Ruben Garcia scored in the game for Osasuna, which took his tally to five for the season. Chimy Avila has also scored five times this season.
Sevilla have had the upper hand in the fixture for the past couple of years. They have rattled off four straight victories against Osasuna. Their last head to head encounter ended in a 5-0 victory for Sevilla. That game was two years ago, and a lot has changed since then for both clubs.
Osasuna vs Sevilla Betting Tips
Osasuna will provide tougher competition this time, but Sevilla will still be favourites for the win. The total goals in this game should be less than 2.5, and Sevilla will have their eyes on another clean sheet. They will hope to claim top spot if other results go their way.
