Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 30
Venue: Mestalla (Valencia)
Los Murcelagos seem to be paying the price for their slow start to the campaign as they continue their struggle to break into the top-six mix. Four points adrift off sixth-placed Real Sociedad, it goes without saying that Valencia still have a great shot at a Europa League place finish.

However, to achieve that, Albert Celades’ charges will have to improve performance levels over the coming games. Notably, they have struggled with inconsistency all season, alternating between wins, draws and losses every game-week.

Good news for Los Murcelagos is that there are still nine games left till the end of the season. A good run of form over this period could see Valencia rise up to standings, perhaps clinching a top-six finish come the end of the campaign. They will need to take each game one at a time, starting with victory over Osasuna.

Valencia vs Osasuna Team News

With a spot in Europe out there for the taking, Valencia set out on a trip to the famed Santiago Bernabeu to take on league leaders Real Madrid, hoping to grab some much-needed points. Headed into the game in high-spirits, you could tell the sky was their limit as they squared-off against Los Blancos.

Following a goalless first-half, head coach Albert Celades must have had some kind words for his players for their grit and resilience. They worked their asses off to keep Real Madrid’s deadly attacking frontline quiet for the first forty-five.

However, following the restart, Karim Benzema broke the deadlock, ultimately opening the floodgates. Another effort from Benzema and Asensio ensured that Los Murcelagos were comprehensively beaten. The visitors will feel hard done-by by the final result given their impressive displays.

Following the league restart, Osasuna were greeted by a terrific run of fixtures, with their first three games against top-half outfits. After managing a surprise one-all draw against Real Sociedad, Los Rojillos were brought down to bare bones against Atletico Madrid last time out.

Arrasate’s charges will have no complaints about the defeat given they were completely outclassed by their high-flying opposition. With Morata, Felix and a host of other players getting on the scoresheet, Atleti knocked Osasuna for six, posting a massive 5-0 win on the board.

Impressively, Valencia are one of the three La Liga sides to have remained unbeaten at home this season. They are currently spotting an imperious home record of eight wins and seven draws over fifteen appearances. They have registered a whopping 24 goals in these games.

Given that Osasuna are a newly-promoted side, they deserve some plaudits for their exploits in the La Liga so far. As good as they have been on the overall, their away form has been very worrisome. With three wins from their 14 excursions, they are easily one of the worst away sides in the league.

Injured or Suspended Players

Valencia: Jose Gaya, Lee Kangin, Ezequiel Garay and Eliaquim Mangala.

Osasuna: Chimy Avila, Kike Barja and Robert Ibanez.

Valencia vs Osasuna Predictions

On paper, Valencia seem overwhelming favorites for the win in this fixture. They are sporting an eight-point lead over this weekend’s opposition and are one of the best home sides in the league. Also, they are desperate for points to break into the Europa League places.

However, Osasuna are not a side to be treated with a wave of the hand. They are capable of giving the best La Liga teams a run for their money with everyone in their side ticking. As such, we cannot go for an outright Valencia win. The safest punt will be a Draw no Bet backing the home side for the win.
