Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero will host Tuesday’s La Liga game between Elche and Osasuna. Los Franjiverdes aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Atletico Madrid, with the team eyeing their only second home win of the season. The newcomers do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the visit of Osasuna, but the midweek clash could be the turning point for them.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, continue to struggle in the 2020/21 season, with the team sitting in the ultimate position in the table ahead of Matchday 15. Osasuna are desperate to grab something from Tuesday’s clash, and seeing that both sides are likely to go for a win, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Carrillo is sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Perez, Torro, Avilla, and Hernandez (suspension) are out of contention for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Victor Rodriguez):
Victor Rodriguez is a professional player who began his senior career at Vilajuiga, playing 36 matches for the club and scoring 11 goals. After spending three years at Badalona the pacey winger joined Zaragoza and it has to be noted that he scored six goals in 72 appearances for the Estadio La Romareda outfit in La Liga.
On 7 August, 2014 Victor Rodriguez signed a three-year deal with Elche, but in August 2015 he was sent to Getafe on loan. Rodriguez scored two goals in 33 appearances for los Azulones in the 2015/2016 Primera Division campaign, but following Getafe’s relegation to Segunda Division, he signed a four-year deal with Sporting Gijon in the 2016 summer transfer window.
Victor Rodriguez has yet to make his Spain debut, but he played for Catalonia in a friendly game. The Sporting Gijon winger is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well. Rodriguez was born in Barcelona on 23 July, 1989.
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.
