Athletic Bilbao to Win

The season has been a bit disappointing for Bilbao since they’ve lost both 2020 and 2021 Copa del Rey finals in a matter of weeks. Things in the league have been average, although the team still has a theoretical chance of securing a spot in the Europa League. That, along with the fact that Bilbao hasn’t lost in eight games in a row and the fact that they are the home team, leads us to believe that they can beat Osasuna.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Our prediction here can be considered a stretch since both teams rarely go over 2.5 total goals. For example, Athletic Bilbao has done it only twice in their last eight matches, while Osasuna is a bit better by going over 2.5 total goals in three of their last eight La Liga games. Furthermore, three of their last five h2h duels have gone under 2.5 total goals. But we expect this match to be different since both teams will be relaxed and without a huge competitive motive, which can lead to goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect to see at least three goals in this game, we also expect both teams to score in this match. This is not unusual for Athletic Bilbao and Osasuna matches since three of their last five duels have ended with both teams scoring. Furthermore, both teams have scored in 56% of Athletic Bilbao matches and 41% of Osasuna games.

Athletic Bilbao vs Osasuna preview: A stress-free duel for both teams

Both teams enter this game without any worries, although Athletic Bilbao still has a slim, theoretical chance of getting a spot for European competitions. So, let’s check these teams out in more detail.

Athletic Bilbao

After failing to win two Copa del Rey finals in the same season, the Basque team will have reasons to feel bad about this season. However, the team has been playing well lately, with eight games in La Liga without a loss. And even though just two of them have been wins, it’s still a good run for a team in 8th place in the standings. That being said, Bilbao is struggling with injuries at the moment since six of their first-team players are unavailable for the Osasuna game.

Osasuna

The team from Pamplona can be pleased with their 2021 La Liga season since they are safely tucked in the middle of the table with four games left to go. Although the team has lost their last two games in the league, they have been in good form lately with three wins and three draws to go with those two losses in their last eight La Liga games. Furthermore, the team is almost fully healthy since only Ruben is under question due to injury at the moment.
