Our football match prediction:
Estadio El Sadar will host Saturday’s football match between Osasuna and Las Palmas. Los Rojillos have been slipping down the standings week by week and they have collected no more than two points from possible 18 in La Liga. The newcomers are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Las Palmas and considering that los Amarillos played out a 2-2 draw with star-studded Real Madrid at the weekend, away win appears on the horizon. Las Palmas have been producing scintillating displays in the 2016/2017 La Liga campaign and we predict that they are going to record their second away win of the season on Saturday evening. In their last meeting at Estadio el Sadar Las Palmas emerged triumphant and there is every chance history will repeat itself. Tana scored in the 2-2 draw with Real Madrid and the team’s top scorer will be the man to watch in the away team.
Highligted Player (Roberto Torres):
After scoring 23 goals in 132 appearances for Osasuna B, Roberto Torres made his first-team debut on 11 December 2011. He came as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Malaga, but he played no more than two league games for los Rojillos in the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign.
