Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Sevilla and Osasuna face each other at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the closing match of Sunday’s program. Los Sevillanos are stuck in the middle of the table with 25 points on their account, but they produce much better displays in La Liga in comparison with the season beginning. Morocco centre-forward Youssef En Nesyri is pushing for a start, while all Karim Rekik, Dario Gomez, and Jesus Manuel Corona remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, do not seem to be at the top of their game, and given their five-match winless run in Primera Division, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Jorge Sampaoli’s troops. Both Avila and Cruz are back from suspensions, while Pena and Vidal will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. In the first half of the season Osasuna defeated Sevilla 2-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Marcos Acuña):
Marcos Acuna is an Argentina international who plays for Sporting Club de Portugal as a winger. Born in Zapala, Argentina on October 28, 1991, Acuna started his senior career at Ferro Carril Oeste. After scoring 5 goals in 117 appearances for the Argentine club from 2010 to 2014, he moved to Racing Club in the summer of 2014.
The 172-cm-tall footballer looked sharper in front of goal during his spell with la Academia, scoring 16 goals in 78 appearances for the club. In June 2017 Marcos Acuna decided to take a step forward in his career, joining Portuguese outfit Sporting CP. He made his debut with the Lions in a 2-0 win over Deportivo Aves on August 6, 2017.
Acuna plays for the Argentine national team as well, making his debut for la Albiceleste on November 15, 2016 in a World Cup qualifier against Colombia. His main position is left-back, but he is used as both left midfielder and left winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Osasuna):
Osasuna are a Basque football team that plays in Spanish La Liga. Los Rojillos are based in Pamplona and and the club were founded in 1920. Estadio El Sadar has been the home of Osasuna since 1967 and the capacity of the stadium is 19,800.
The colour of Osasuna’s home kit is red, while the team’s shorts are navy blue. Los Rojillos dropped to the Segunda Division at the end of the 2013/2014 La Liga campaign, but they did not spend too many time in the Spanish second tier. The club returned to the elite division in 2016 after beating Girona in the play-offs.
Osasuna made it to the Spanish Copa del Rey final in 2005, but they eventually lost to Real Betis after extra time in the title game. The meaning of the word Osasuna is “health” in Basque and it is used in a sense of strength.
