Who will win La Liga?
The Spanish football elite is increasingly beginning to look like a tennis match.
In tennis, the winner is not the player who does more so-called. "Winners", the equivalent of goals scored in football.
And the one who makes fewer mistakes.
Here, Barcelona scores the most in La Liga. However, the Catalans are in 3rd place.
And Atletico Madrid, who are only in 6th place in the standings by created goal positions, are leaders.
Because the Mattresses have conceded the fewest goals of all other teams.
Real Madrid has not lost for a long time
It is clear to Real Madrid that they must not make more mistakes.
But I took the trouble to check how they performed after matches for Euro tournaments. Which is exactly the current case.
Well 6 wins and 4 wrong steps with 2 draws and 2 losses. One victory was 1-0 due to an own goal by Sevilla.
Only 4 days after this match should be in London. And with a negative result 1-1 from the first meeting with Chelsea.
What level of motivation will Whites have for this meeting? And do you think they will not be more to the English capital?
Will there be many rotations?
However, more than once I have said in my predictions that Real Madrid are one of the top teams that has no equal changes.
I can't be sure of the answer to all these questions.
That is why I cannot vote of confidence in the Royal Club. Even more on the odds offered by bookmakers.
However, it is correct to note that Real Madrid are the second team in the best shape.
And they are unbeaten in their last 13 La Liga matches.
In addition, they have created the most goal positions of all in the last 9 championship matches since March 1.
But probably due to some personnel problems they are only in 10th position in terms of goals scored for the period.
Osasuna relies on his defense
Osasuna are already with the coveted 40 points. And they can be sure of the status reserved for La Liga next season.
The team performed equally well as a host and as a guest. But the great weakness was the inability to mark.
Osasuna have the 6th weakest attack in La Liga.
And obviously the problem is in the qualities of the attackers themselves. Because otherwise the team creates enough goals.
The compensation, however, comes from the surprisingly strong defense.
As they have the 8th strongest defense, right after those of the top teams.
We can say that with 8 goals scored and 4 goals conceded from their last 8 matches, the trend from the beginning of the season is maintained.
And we can expect its continuation in this meeting as well.
Prediction for Real Madrid - Osasuna
In general, my conclusion is that in this meeting it is not appropriate to look for a final solution.
But in the market for the number of goals they are much more likely to be few.
Real Madrid can save energy. And to have rotations in the composition. While Osasuna are not strong in attack.
In defense, both teams perform well.
I don't think there will be 3 or more goals. Slightly above average bet for this prediction.
