Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Osasuna will be looking to build on a splendid 3-2 win over Sevilla when they face Celta Vigo on Matchday 24. Los Rojillos are sitting just below the Conference League berth, and a win over Os Celeste should see them climb to top six in the standings. Barring any fresh injury worries, head coach Jagoba Arrasate is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated los Sevillanos.
The Galicians, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Real Valladolid. Osasuna and Celta Vigo seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Both Oscar Mingueza and Agustin Marchesin are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team. In the first half of the season Osasuna defeated Celta Vigo 2-1.
