Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Sevilla will look to kick off their La Liga campaing in style when they take on Osasuna at Estadio el Sadar. Los Sevillanos were having their ups and downs in pre-season, but they did well to beat Cadiz thanks to Thomas Delaney’s goal. The Andalusian outfit are undefeated in the previous five meetings with Osasuna in Pamplona, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Friday’s clash.
New signing Marcao is likely to make his La Liga debut against los Rojillos, as well as loanees Isco and Alex Telles. Osasuna, on the other hand, will rely on new recruit Moi Gomez, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Osasuna suit Sevilla. All Kike Saverio, Aitor Fernandez, and Ante Budimir are injured for the hosts, while there are no absentees in the away side.
