Our football match prediction:
Osasuna and Eibar face each other in the Copa del Rey last 16. Los Rojillos have been playing below expectations in the La Liga this season and, as a result, they sit at the rock bottom in the standings. Osasuna, though, did well to eliminated Granada in the Copa del Rey last 32 and they will be looking to build on the victory when they host Eibar at their Estadio El Sadar on Tuesday. Los Armeros, on the other hand, rolled over Sporting Gijon in the two-legged tie and they are enjoying a very successful season. Eibar occupy 8th place in the La Liga standings ahead of Tuesday’s football game against Osasuna, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. The hosts want this win more than the visitors and that is the main reason why we predict that los Rojillos will grab something from the game.
