REASONS FOR OSASUNA VS SEVILLA BETTING TIPS
Bottom of the table Osasuna play host to a Sevilla side that go into the weekend’s fixtures lying 2nd in the table and who certainly won’t be lacking in confidence after rallying from a goal down to end Real Madrid’s 40-match unbeaten run with a 2-1 victory last weekend.
It was a victory that took Sevilla to within a point of the leaders and established them as genuine title contenders.
Osasuna went to Granada, the team immediately above them in the table, last weekend and came away with a 1-1 draw. It stretched Osasuna’s unbeaten run to three games in all competitions (three draws) under their new Serbian coach, Peter Vasiljevic, but in truth it’s long looked as though relegation was all but a formality, with Los Rojillos already being seven points short of safety (which is quite a gulf when you only have nine points at this stage of the campaign).
Osasuna have still to record a victory at El Sadar, with their one win in La Liga this term coming at Eibar over three months back. They’ve accumulated just three points from a possible 27 on home turf.
It’s difficult to see past a Sevilla win here but, at best odds of 11/20 with Betway, that’s a very short price for any team away from home in a major European league.
The Asian Handicap market could be a better option, with Sevilla -1 on offer at 9/10 with bet365. Basically, if Sevilla win by any one-goal margin, you will get your full stake refunded, but win by two goals or more and you would have a winning bet.
Another punt well worth considering is Sevilla to Win to Nil, which is available at 9/5 with Paddy Power. Osasuna have scored just seven goals in nine games at El Sadar this term and three of those were in their last home game against a woeful Valencia team that has conceded in every single game they’ve played this season.
Of Osasuna’s six home defeats, they’ve also been losing at the interval in four of them. With Sevilla being ahead at half-time in two of their four away wins, backing Sevilla/ Sevilla in the Half-time/ Full-time Double Result market at 7/5 with BetVictor appeals.
In terms of an Osasuna v Sevilla Correct Score prediction, a 2-0 win for Jorge Sampaoli’s team looks a fair shout at 15/2 with William Hill.
In the Anytime Goalscorer market, Stevan Jovetic is an 8/5 shot with 888sport to follow up his match-winning debut goal against Real Madrid with another here. Wissam Ben Yedder has eight league goals to date and can be backed at 6/4 with Paddy Power.
