Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao predictions and tips by Punditfeed

A win for Osasuna in the season opener against Celta away from home means the second game of the season against Athletic Bilbao and the first at home this season is another crucial fixture. Here are our top Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao predictions:

Osasuna to Win

A win for Osasuna is our first Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao prediction. They won their season opener away from home and now face Bilbao that lost their season opener. Notably, Osasuna defeated Bilbao in the last meeting and have not lost to the visitors in the last four encounters. Moreover, Osasuna won their last two home games against Athletic Bilbao.

Under 2.5 goals

Our next Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao prediction is on the total match goals. Thus, we are tipping under 2.5 goals in the overs/unders betting market. Bilbao will attempt to win their first game of the season, so solid defending will be crucial in that quest. Thus, while we have settled on the hosts to win, it is likely to be a narrow victory with fewer than 3 goals at full-time.

Both teams to score – No

In our final Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao prediction, our tip is on the team to score in this second game of the 2023/24 La Liga season. Four of the last five meetings had BTTS-No outcomes, with one game yielding a barren draw. Bilbao could not score in their season opener at home, so there are likely to struggle in this trip.

Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao Fixture Preview

A win in the last two home games against Celta Vigo gives Osasuna the leverage they need in this game. The fact that they also defeated Bilbao in the last duel means Osasuna are likely to get a surprise win here even though Bilbao have a narrow edge based on most odds across different betting sites.

Osasuna did not lose to Bilbao in the last four meetings, so a strong start to the new season means this game is likely to sway in their favour.

For odds of 2.39, Osasuna’s implied win probability is 34% while Athletic Bilbao have a win probability of 38% with odds of 2.60.
