Our Prediction:

Osasuna will win

Osasuna – Betis Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 15:00

They were an unstoppable force at home in the Segunda Division last season and they will be hungry to get that first win of the season at El Sadar and this match certainly offers them a chance. Theyve since held Eibar, Valladolid and Barcelona to draws with plenty to encourage their boss Jagoba Arrasate. Osasunas solitary victory came on the opening day in not entirely deserved fashion against Leganes.

He started the season in fine form with new signing Borja Iglesias still struggling with a knock. They will take on an Osasuna side that should feature few if any changes following their bright start. The suspension of Moron may actually be something of a blessing in disguise. That presented Rubi with something of a selection dilemma but he can now focus on fielding what he would have always perceived to be his strongest attacking unit.

Osasuna vs Betis Correct Score Prediction

It is well known that Osasuna are tough to beat at home and given los Beticos poor start to the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Jagoba Arrasates troops. The newcomers have been producing fine performances at the start of the 2019/2020 La Liga season and, as a result, they sit in the top half of the standings ahead of the visit of Real Betis. Thanks to Roberto Ibanezs late goal Osasuna managed to hold Real Valladolid to a draw at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorilla on Matchday 4.

However, their last head to head match was played 2 years ago, and a lot has changed since then. Moreover, in those 23 matches, they kept a clean sheet on 17 occasions. Given also the visitors poor form I believe that its easy to see that the hosts will ultimately come out on top and grab all three points. Osasuna have improved their form drastically, and it looks like its extremely hard to beat them at home, they are undefeated in the 23 consecutive matches played at their home ground. In their last 5 H2H matches we saw different results, the host won 3 and the visitors 3 out of those 5 games.

Betis are starting to find their feet under Rubi though with 4 points from their last 2 matches. They did well to get a point out of their game with Getafe last time out given that they finished the game with only nine players as Loren Moron and William Carvalho saw red. Thats all theyve managed for the season so far but theyve really not been helped by being reduced to 10 men in the opening half hour of each of their home matches to date.

How we calculate our stats

Theyve struggled defensively and this has proven costly, which will be a worry for the travelling fans. Real Betis have seen a tense 1-1 draw against Getafe over the weekend in a game theyve finished with nine men, as William Carvalho got set off in the first half and Loren Moron followed in the footsteps in the final minutes of the game.

This has the makings of an intriguing game with Osasuna unbeaten at home in the league in 17 months taking on the title favourites Barcelona. Clearly the Pamplona outfit havent come up against anyone on Barcas level during that long unbeaten home streak but they will be encouraged by the number of key players their opponents will have to leave behind here.

Osasuna vs Betis prediction comes ahead of the Spanish La Liga round 5 game. This match will be played at the Estadio El Sadar in Pamplona.

I expect to see a close-contested affair where the hosts ultimately get the best of the visitors.

Osasuna vs Betis PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 20/09/2019

After scoring 23 goals in 132 appearances for Osasuna B, Roberto Torres made his first-team debut on 11 December 2011. He came as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Malaga, but he played no more than two league games for los Rojillos in the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign. However, he was making progress year by year and he made 42 appearances for Osasuna in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign.

Osasuna actually come into this game a point above Barcelona in the table. There has only been one goal scored in their two matches so far, netted by Chimy Avila in the win at Leganes. They did though see their 17 match home winning streak ended last time out with a draw against Eibar but coach Jagoba Arrasate will be delighted that his team is yet to concede.

Victory over Los Verdiblancos at El Sadar would temporarily lift Jagoba Arrasates men into 2nd place ahead of the remaining weekend fixtures and that will undoubtedly spur on the hosts to get another positive result. As a result, Osasuna go into this Fridays encounter against Betis 9th in the La Liga table with six points on the board, following a win and three draws so far.

Osasuna vs Real Betis Best Bet

Their current form and results make me believe that they wont manage to upset the hosts too much. Despite their good form during the last season, and finishing it in the 10th place, Betis had a significant drop in the quality of their performances. They obviously need to improve their game a lot if they dont want to get any closer to the relegation zone. In their most recent 5 clashes, they recorded 3 losses, 1 win and 1 draw, with 6 goals scored and 10 allowed. They didnt have a good start this season and are currently placed 15th with 4 points and a goal difference of 6:9.

This could be a good game. Osasuna have proved they are no slouches though and with the Pamplona outfit unbeaten in 25 home league games, they will fancy they can get a result but they may have to settle for a draw again. Betis have real quality in attack with Fekir and Iglesias up top and they will come looking for three points which should open things up a bit.

The newcomers have been producing fine performances at the start of the 2019/2020 La Liga season and, as a result, they sit in the top half of the standings ahead of the visit of Real Betis. Thanks to Roberto Ibanezs late goal Osasuna managed to hold Real Valladolid to a draw at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorilla on Matchday 4. It is well known that Osasuna are tough to beat at home and given los Beticos poor start to the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Jagoba Arrasates troops.
