Atletico Madrid is welcoming Osasuna to Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in round 14 of the Spanish LaLiga. Atletico is struggling defensively this season, and it has already cost them a lot of points, hopefully, they can bounce back fast. Osasuna was in a nice form, but they are now without a win in their last 4 games, while they lost their last 2 games in a row.
Atletico is still close to the top in LaLiga, in 4th place with 23 points, but they have already conceded 13 goals, which is just not like them. Offensively, Atletico has been doing a great job with 21 scored goals. Atletico is undefeated in their last 4 LaLiga games, but they have won only 1 of those 4 games. I the Champions League, Atletico is now on a 2-game losing streak, and their chance to advance is in serious jeopardy. Atletico was playing against Valencia on the road in their last game, and they have had 52% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Atletico has had a 3-1 lead in the 60th minute, but they managed to gamble it away, and the final score was 3-3. Suarez is the leading goalscorer for Atletico with 7 goals, while Correa added 3 goals and 3 assists. Llorente and Saponjic are injured, and they will most likely miss this game. Same as for many other teams, the next Champions League will be crucial for Atletico, and with a win, they will put themselves back in the game to advance, but it will be tough.
Osasuna has been a nice surprise in this early season, but all the injuries they have had really ruined their form and their game, but hopefully they will bounce back now that the international break is over. Offensively, Osasuna is averaging just over 1 scored goal per game, but they will need a lot more because their defense has declined. Torres, Garcia, Avila, and David Garcia are the leading goalscorers for Osasuna with 2 goals each. Torres and Sanchez have each added 2 assists. In their latest LaLiga game against Real Sociedad at home, Osasuna has had 43 % of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 81% of the correct passes. Overall, not a bad game for Osasuna against one of the best in the league, but they still lost 0-2. The good news for Osasuna is they are playing only in LaLiga, and that could give them the advantage in this game.
Atletico is the better team here, they have more quality and more depth, but they are struggling. Osasuna can be a tough nut to crack, and I think that will happen in this game. With their Champions League game ahead, Atletico will not be focused on this game, and for that reason, I think Osasuna will be able to snatch a point here.
