Atletico Madrid vs Osasuna PredictionAtletico Madrid vs Osasuna Prediction and Preview for Saturday's La Liga fixture. Atletico Madrid have been playing catch-up with the two Spanish La Liga titans – Barcelona and Real Madrid – so far his season. However, in contrast to previous seasons, they have been bog-standard this time around.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 17
Kick-off:
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)

They currently sit seventh on the La Liga standings, a point adrift of the Champions League places and a whopping eight points behind both Barcelona and Real Madrid in first and second place respectively.

Apparently, things have not been going well for the home side this season and head coach Diego Simeone will be looking to stable the tide, as his job continues to remain on the line.

It’s never too late to turn the club’s fortunes around and the Argentine tactician will be looking to get his side right back on track, starting with a positive result against newly-promoted side Osasuna.

Atletico Madrid vs Osasuna Team News

Los Colchoneros were on the road last time out, and as we have become accustomed to this season, faltered in unfamiliar territory. They looked a shadow of the Atletico Madrid side that were crowned La Liga champions in 2014 after holding Barcelona to a draw in their last league game.

Despite hassling and harrying for most of the game, they were forced to share the spoils against a resilient Villarreal side. It was an intense encounter at the Estadio de la Ceramica and the players must have heaved a huge sigh of relief as the referee brought the game to a close.

Osasuna, on the other hand, got their supporters on cloud-9 following a one-all draw against tough customer Sevilla. Many expected Los Rojillos to relinquish all three points against this foe but against all odds, managed to snatch a well-deserved point.

At times in the game, it looked as if the visitors were going to finally find a way past the stubborn Osasuna defense but the players held their own up until the final whistle. They had to soak in so much pressure but refused to give in.

Their unwavering character was bare for everyone to see and manager Jagoba Arrasate will be spurring his players on to bring that sturdiness to the table once again when they travel to the dreaded Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Saturday evening.

This weekend, Diego Simone’s men will be desperate for nothing but a win against this foe as they look to climb further up the ladder. Sixth-place is not befitting for a club of their stature and they will be looking to rewrite the script, starting with a win against lowly Osasuna.

This Osasuna side will be hoping they do not fall victim of a backlash from this frustrated Atletico Madrid side. The latter have home advantage under their belt as well as more experience and talent within their ranks, given their opponents just got promoted to the Spanish top flight.

The home side have lost just twice in their previous twelve appearances, those two defeats coming against Real Madrid and Barcelona. Osasuna have only two away wins of note so far this season, in games against Leganes and Espanyol, the last two teams on the La Liga table.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Atletico Madrid: Sime Vrsaljko, Stefan Savic, Diego Costa, Vitolo.

Osasuna: Kike Barja, Rubén Martínez, Nacho Vidal, Marc Cardona, Oier Sanjurjo.

Atletico Madrid vs Osasuna Predictions

Every single stat points in the direction of an Atletico Madrid win here. Home advantage, h2h dominance coupled with the sheer talent within their ranks, the home side are easily overwhelming favourites for this encounter.

The visitors, however, are no pushovers. They held Sevilla to a one-all draw last time out and will not be shy of causing another major upset against Atleti. If Diego Simeone’s men thread with caution in this fixture, they should clinch maximum points on this ground, although no more than a one-goal margin - so it's sensible to back Osasuna with a +1 goal cusion.
