Sevilla has easily moved away from the bottom three in La Liga over the past couple of weeks, but they will be looking to maintain their strong recent form with a fourth win in six against Osasuna on Sunday.
La Liga Preview
Things were looking slightly awkward at stages for Sevilla in the opening half of the season, as there were fears that they may drop into the second tier in Spain. However, their class has come shining through since the restart, and they come into this fixture on Sunday sitting 12th in the standings. They could move up to eleventh this weekend with a victory at home against Osasuna.
Sevilla’s only defeat over their previous five came against Barcelona, but they have since gone two without a loss in the Spanish top flight. However, they were held in their previous fixture in La Liga, as they could only play out a 1-1 draw against Rayo Vallecano. Suso put Sevilla ahead in that fixture, but the hosts levelled the scores with just 25 minutes remaining of the 90.
Osasuna currently sits higher than Sevilla in the league standings, as they are tenth overall. They could yet have a chance of breaking into a European place in the second half of the campaign, as they are just four points off the top six. However, their recent form has been extremely concerning, as they have been without a win in their previous five matches.
Over that period, they have suffered two defeats, and they have been held to three draws. Their most recent loss was recorded last weekend, as they were easily beaten at home by Real Madrid. But, they could stand a better chance of recovering their winning fortune this weekend against Sevilla.
Sevilla vs Osasuna Head to Head
Osasuna has gone three without defeat against Sevilla in all competitions, which includes a 2-1 win in the Copa del Rey earlier in the campaign. However, they haven’t recorded an away success in Seville in over ten years. Sevilla won this exact fixture last term 2-0, which means that they have won each of their previous nine at home against Osasuna.
Sevilla vs Osasuna Prediction
Sevilla’s dominant home record against Osasuna is a clear betting angle this weekend, as the visitors haven’t picked up a point in Seville since 2009. We expect the hosts to pick up the points on Sunday, but it may only come by a cagey 1-0 scoreline.
