Our Prediction:

Osasuna will win

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

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.

Betis made it a bit too easy for Barcelona at times last weekend but it will be a very different kind of task here for the Catalans against a side that will be more content to defend deep and scrap for every ball. There were some encouraging signs for Ernesto Valverde last weekend with some of his younger players catching the eye while Sergi Roberto was assured in midfield. Messi will be missed of course but it will be difficult for Osasuna to keep it tight for ninety minutes and the visitors should scrape a win.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rafinha and youngster Carles Perez should keep their places on the flanks for this one with Antoine Griezmann expected to lead the line following his brace last time out. However that didnt stop Barca putting five past a sluggish Betis side last weekend. The Catalans will be hungry to avoid another early season slip-up having been defeated in the Basque Country already this season by Athletic. For the second week running, Leo Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele are all likely to be missing.

Osasuna vs Betis H2H

Right now they are on a five-game undefeated streak, with 2 wins and 3 draws. They are continuing with the great results this season, and after 4 matches they are in 9th spot in the standings with 6 points and 4:3 goal difference. Their defence is tight, so I believe that they wont concede any goals, and considering the fact that they are in a better form than their opponents, I also believe that theyll score. In those last 5 matches, they scored 5 goals and allowed 3. Osasuna has spent 2 seasons in La Liga 2 and then made a spectacular comeback to the top flight of Spanish football.

They would rise all the way up to 2nd place were they to win this match while Betis would climb at least seven places should they emerge victorious. This weekends opening game should be a pretty even one as a talented Betis side makes the long trip to Pamplona to take on unbeaten Osasuna. The newly promoted side have made an assured start to life at this level with one victory and three draws to their name.

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.
