Our football match prediction:
Estadio El Sadar will host Saturday’s football game between Osasuna and Athletic Bilbao. Los Rojillos are a rock-bottom team and they have slim chances of securing yet another La Liga survival. Osasuna recorded their last league win back in October and it is no surprise they are regarded as big underdogs in the game against Athletic Bilbao. The hosts head into the match with the lack of confidence and home win should not be considered. Athletic Bilbao aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid and a victory over Osasuna would see them move a little closer to the Europa League berth. The Lions are likely to go all guns blazing at los Rojillos and, taking everything into account, we predict that the visitors will pick up all three points from Saturday’s game. Experienced attacker Aritz Aduriz is likely to lead the line for the visitors against Petar Vasiljevic’s team.
