Osasuna is welcoming Celta Vigo to Estadio El Sadar in round 36 in Spanish LaLiga.
Osasuna has had a solid season overall, and they are far outside the relegation zone, but Osasuna hasn’t won any of their last 2 games in LaLiga. With 45 points, Osasuna is in 11th place in the standings, and they have scored decent 40 goals this season while conceding 50 goals. In their last LaLiga game against Betis on the road, Osasuna has had 44% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, and low 65% of the correct passes. Nothing was working for Osasuna in this game, and in the end, they lost this match 3-0. Avila has scored 9 goals for Osasuna, but he is injured, while Garcia added 8 goals. Torres added 7 assists. Alongside Avila, Ibanez, Garcia, Cardona, Gallego, and Garcia are also injured and none of them will be playing in this game. Osasuna still has one tough game until the end, against Barcelona, but Osasuna is playing without pressure because they have secured their LaLiga spot, and they can’t reach the Europa League. Who knows, maybe if not for all the injuries, Osasuna would have been closer to the Europa League, but I’m sure they are satisfied with their season.
Celta has been playing solid soccer since the restart, but they are still struggling in the attacking end. In their last 8 games, Celta has only 2 losses, but they have 4 draws, and 2 wins. Celta is now in 16th place with 36 points, just 4 points away from the relegation zone, and with 9 points left to be won this season, Celta might have a tricky situation on their hands if they lose in this match. With only 34 scored goals in 35 games, Celta is one of the weakest offensive teams in LaLiga, despite having the huge talent on that end, while their defense has been decent with 44 conceded goals. Aspas has scored 13 goals for Celta this season, while Rafinha and Mina have 4 goals each. Denis Suarez is Celta’s top assistant with 5 assists, but unfortunately for Celta, he is injured. Junca and Alvarez are also injured and will not be on the lineup for this match. In their latest LaLiga match against Atletico Madrid at home, Celta was solid with 50% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 84% of the correct passes. This was a match that could have easily gone either way, but it ended in a 1-1 draw. I would dare to say that the last three games of the season are on the easier side for Celta, and 1 win should be enough for them to stay in LaLiga. I know that Celta can play the fantastic soccer in the attacking end, they just need to find the way to utilize that talent Celta possesses.
The trends are on Celta’s side in this matchup, but Celta has won only 2 away games this season. Because of all the injuries in Osasuna, I will take a stab at Celta here because they are the better team in my opinion, and they need this win much more than Osasuna.
