Two mid-table sides in La Liga are hoping to push into the top 10 when they meet on Monday night, March 4th, but while Osasuna have put together a great record at their own ground of late, will that be enough to see off Alaves?

  • Osasuna to win @ 11/8
  • Osasuna to win to nil @ 12/5 

Team news

Osasuna will welcome back Davis Garcia from suspension in this clash after he missed their 1-1 draw at Las Palmas.

However, Ruben Pena, Juan Cruz and Jose Arnaiz also missed that clash through injury and they’re expected to miss out on Monday.

Aleksandar Sedlar is Alaves’ only injury concern, so they’re likely to be unchanged from last weekend’s draw with Mallorca.

Match Odds

Hosts Osasuna are 11/8 to make home advantage count and claim a home win, with the draw priced at 21/10 and an Alaves victory available at 9/4.

Osasuna to win @ 11/8

These two sides are comfortably clear of danger in La Liga, but Osasuna will be hoping to kick on after making it into Europe last term.

The hosts have a fairly solid record this term outside of meeting the league’s top teams. They’ve won nine and lost only four of 19 clashes with sides placed seventh and below.

That should help the hosts in this clash with an Alaves outfit who are four points below them in the table. The visitors have been beaten on six occasions on their travels this season, winning just twice from 13 away trips.

Heading to Osasuna is a tough assignment for Alaves, having failed to win any of the last eight La Liga clashes between the pair. They’ve lost seven of those eight encounters, including the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Osasuna have won four of their last five home league games heading into this one, while Alaves have lost four of six visits to the teams ahead of them. Back the hosts to secure all three points in this one and continue their fine form at home.

Osasuna to win vs Alaves

Osasuna to win to nil @ 12/5 

Osasuna have won their last four meetings with Almeria to nil and another clean sheet looks on the cards here. The visitors have scored just 11 times across their 13 away trips, so they should struggle to get on the scoresheet in this clash.

Osasuna have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five at home and their victories this term have tended to see them edge low-scoring games.

They’ve won four meetings with sides below them in the table at their own ground, with each finishing either 1-0 or 2-0. Another win to nil appeals here.

With Osasuna holding a good record against Alaves, they can take a comfortable win on Monday night. The visitors have conceded twice in seven of their 11 defeats this term, so back Osasuna to secure a 2-0 victory at 9/1.
