Osasuna vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
Second trip to Northern Spain in a row for Atletico Madrid. On the weekend it was Athletic Bilbao in the Basque Country, where the Rojiblancos could not get past a disappointing 1-1 draw, just a few days later the trip to the province of Navarre to Pamplona, a good 150 kilometers east – if Atletico at CA Osasuna can run.
Atletico will hope that the new away trip to the north will find a better end this time – because the men of coach Diego Simeone are aiming for three important points in the fight for the Champions League qualification, which they had missed when they played in Bilbao .
Due to the draw Atletico remained in sixth place and threatens to miss the premier class. So at Osasuna there is an urgent need to win this time if you want to keep up with the targeted fourth place.
A look at the bookmakers shows us at the game Osasuna against Atletico Madrid that Atleti is considered an easy favorite in the odds, but the game will be anything but a sure-fire success.
The Rojiblancos present themselves too capricious and not dangerous to score, too often they share the points – especially abroad – this is also reflected in the betting odds in the duel Osasuna vs Atletico Madrid, especially those on a draw in three-way. An overview of the best odds increases can be found in the betting base odds comparison.
Not only Atletico Madrid, but also CA Osasuna started the re-start in La Liga with a guest appearance in the Basque Country, namely at Real Sociedad – and pulled out of the affair here, also played a 1-1 draw, just like Atletico did Athletic Bilbao did.
However, Osasuna took the point division differently: While it was a setback for Atletico in the battle for the premier class, Osasuna will certainly be more than satisfied with the most hidden point in San Sebastian, after all, Osasuna was the clear outsider in this duel.
In addition, Osasuna has done Atletico a favor, as Real Sociedad is fourth, but the direct rival of the Colchoneros in the duel for the Champions League qualification. So Real Sociedad stays within easy reach and is only one point ahead of Atleti.
Osasuna meanwhile ranks 11th – eliminating (almost) all worries: a Europa League spot is eleven points behind, and you have a ten point advantage from the relegation zone. Osasuna has a good cushion up and down, so there is a quiet remaining season in Pamplona, and that as a climber – commendable anyway.
As a result, coach Jagoba Arrasate was also satisfied with the draw in San Sebastian: “It is a point win against a strong opponent in a difficult away game. I have seen a very complete team effort, both football and physical. The point brings us closer to relegation. ”
Despite the comfortable distance to the relegation ranks, Arrasate wants to maintain focus and prevent the comfort of his team: “We are ten points ahead of the relegation – we would have signed it in advance. But 35 points are not enough, we want more. ”
For Osasuna and Arrasate, it is up to Atletico Madrid: “If we continue like this, we will achieve the goal of staying in class.”
So Osasuna is satisfied with his result in the first game after the compulsory break, the feeling of the guests from the Spanish capital is different: Atletico Madrid certainly imagined the start of the remaining season La Ligas very differently, instead there was the old song again : a tie.
Not only Osasuna knows about a draw, Atletico Madrid has even more experience: Because Atleti is the leader in the division of points in La Liga with 13 draws in 28 games – followed by, exactly: Osasuna with 11 draws.
So there is a duel between the draw kings, which is why in Osasuna vs Atletico a forecast on X seems anything but unrealistic.
For Atletico this would of course be the next setback – so slowly the Simeone team has to score three points again. This has rarely been successful lately: four of Atletico’s five games ended in draws, three of which were already in one go (1-1 at Espanyol, 2-2 against Sevilla, 1-1 in Bilbao).
Atletico coach Simeone spoke of “a final in every game” after the point division in Bilbao, looking at the table in Spain’s La Liga. The Rojiblancos can no longer afford many slips, otherwise there is a risk of a super meltdown – missing the premier class.
Atletico can’t really think about losing points in Bilbao, because in La Liga things go very quickly, every team plays on average every three days. “These ten match days will be a huge challenge,” Simeone predicts, but of course that applies “to all teams”, since the schedule for all La Liga teams is so tight.
So there are no excuses. It is important to focus directly on the next game – a win must come from the guest performance in Pamplona this time. Captain Koke agrees, saying: “We have to win because we want to qualify for the Champions League.”
