Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Osasuna did not make a flying start to the new La Liga campaign, but los Rojillos have been raising their form week by week and they have found their goal-scoring touch of late. The newcomers dropped a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw with Las Palmas in their last home fixture in the national championship, but they did remarkably well to beat Eibar at Estadio El Sadar in Monday’s football match. Osasuna recorded their first win of the season against los Armeros, but the team need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure the top flight survival. Osasuna welcome Real Betis at their Estadio El Sadar on day 9 and considering that the Andalusian outfit have been struggling at the back of late, we predict that Enrique Monreal’s men are going to record their first home win of the season on Friday.
