Our football match prediction:
Following a routine 2-0 win over PSV in the Champions League Atletico Madrid will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Osasuna at Estadio el Sadar on Sunday evening. Los Rojiblancos suffered a heartbreaking loss to Real Madrid at the weekend and they are desperate to start a new winning run in La Liga. Atletico Madrid are nine points behind Zinedine Zidane’s troops in the standings, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the visitors. Osasuna are on a four-match winless run in the league ahead of Sunday’s football game and they are eager to escape the relegation zone. However, seeing that los Rojillos failed to score in previous two league fixtures, we predict that Atletico Madrid will return to winning ways on Matchday 13. Antoine Griezmann scored against PSV and, no doubt, the opposition defenders should have their work cut out for them when facing the French attacker.
Highligted Player (Miguel Flano):
Miguel Flano is a centre back who plays for La Liga side Osasuna. Flano was born in Pamplona on 19 August, 1984 and he is a product of Osasuna’s youth academy. The defender made 70 appearances for Osasuna B and he made his debut for the first team on 18 September, 2004, in a 3-2 win over Real Betis. Miguel Flano played for Spain U16, U17, U19 and U23 team in the past, but he has yet to make his debut for the first team. The Spanish footballer scored his first professional goal in a 5-0 win over Real Betis on 9 June, 2007. Flano extended his contract with Osasuna on 7 June 2012 and the contract expires in 2017. It has to be noted that he won the 2005 Mediterranean Games with Spain and the 2001 European Championship with Spain U16. His twin brother Javier is a footballer as well. Miguel Flano wears number 4 on his shirt.
Highlighted Team (Atletico Madrid):
Atletico Madrid are a Spanish team that plays in Primera Division (La Liga). Los Rojiblancos or los Colchoneros play their home matches at Estadio Vicente Calderon, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. Atletico Madrid have won 10 La Liga titles, but they have yet to lift the European Cup (Champions League) trophy. Los Rojblancos have won 10 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) trophies and it has to be noted that they defeated their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 Spanish Cup final. The rivalry between the two capital clubs is pretty big and El Madrileno is regarded as one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Atletico Madrid played two Champions League finals under Diego Simeone, but they failed to beat Real Madrid in the title games (2013/2014 and 2015/2016). However, the Argentine tactician helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga trophy in 2014 and, no doubt, he is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the capital club.
