Our football match prediction:
Celta Vigo were on the verge of beating star-studded Atletico Madrid at Estadio Vicente Calderon at the weekend, but los Rojiblancos eventually scored two late goals and picked up all three points from the game. Os Celeste, though, proved their worth in the game against Diego Simeone’s troops and it is no surprised they are regarded as hot favourites to emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football game against Osasuna. The Galicians have been impressive at home ground this season and we predict that they will record a routine win over the rock-bottom team. Los Rojillos were not capable of matching Real Madrid at their Estadio el Sadar at the weekend and seeing that they head into the game with the lack of confidence, the visitors are unlikely to spoil Celta’ party at Estadio de Balaidos. The two teams played out a goalless draw at Estadio El Sadar in the reverse fixture, but it is well known that Osasuna’s displays on the road leave a lot to be desired.
Highlighted Player (Guidetti):
John Guidetti is one of Sweden’s most talented forwards and the man tipped to replace superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the national team. The highly rated footballer left Brommapojkarna soon after being promoted to the first team set-up, joining Premier League giants Manchester City. And while he never got a chance to shine at Etihad Stadium, Guidetti proved a great deal of potential during loan spells with Feyenoord and Celtic, and eventually earned a permanent contract with La Liga high flyers Celta Vigo. The talented striker has yet to nail down a regular starting berth at Balaidos, but he has been using the time spent on the pitch wisely, and continued his goalscoring form in Spain’s top flight. Playing alongside Nolito and Iago Aspas at club level as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Berg on international stage is bound to further aid the player’s development, and many believe he will go on to become one of Sweden’s best ever strikers. Guidetti has so far only made a handful of appearances for Blagult, but that is bound to change in years to come.
Highlighted Team (Osasuna):
Osasuna are a Basque football team that plays in Spanish La Liga. Los Rojillos are based in Pamplona and and the club were founded in 1920. Estadio El Sadar has been the home of Osasuna since 1967 and the capacity of the stadium is 19,800. The colour of Osasuna’s home kit is red, while the team’s shorts are navy blue. Los Rojillos dropped to the Segunda Division at the end of the 2013/2014 La Liga campaign, but they did not spend too many time in the Spanish second tier. The club returned to the elite division in 2016 after beating Girona in the play-offs. Osasuna made it to the Spanish Copa del Rey final in 2005, but they eventually lost to Real Betis after extra time in the title game. The meaning of the word Osasuna is “health” in Basque and it is used in a sense of strength.
