It is a huge surprise to still see Alaves plying their trade in the Spanish top-flight this season, having been embroiled in a heated relegation squabble last term. Working their asses off, they managed to secure 16th-place, three points clear of the drop-zone.

This time around, the Glorious One are in no mood for beer and skittles as they set their sights on steering well-clear of the relegation places. With a game against troubled Osasuna on the horizon, Alaves are deemed slight favorites for the win.

Osasuna vs Alaves Team News

Enjoying a successful league campaign last time out, Arrasate must have been spurring his boys on to replicate the previous successes once again, prior to the start of the campaign. The Basque gaffer will feel his Osasuna side have enough to challenge for a top-half table spot.

However, instead of pushing for such massive feat, Osasuna are left floundering in the drop-zone, very deep in relegation waters. From 14 matches, these ones have managed only 12 points to occupy 19th place on the standings.

Their recent form has been very embarrassing with Los Rojillos winless in each of their previous eight games on the bounce. More worryingly, a staggering six of those eight fixtures have ended in defeats, highlighting their struggles.

If Osasuna are to stay up at the end of the campaign, they must shake things up a bit to get back on their feet. Very leaky in defense, they have ceded 23 goals so far – the second-worst record in the league. Finding the back of the net has also been something of a chore for Gorritxoak.

But they had their scoring boots on last time out to hold Elche to a 2-2 draw in unfamiliar surroundings. Garcia and Brasanac got their names on the sheet as Osasuna held on to pick up a vital point. They must deliver another strong performance to stand a chance against Alaves in this upcoming tie.

Having narrowly escaped the drop last season, Alaves are looking to play out a much more comfortable campaign this time around. With 17 points to their name, they occupy 15th place on the log, but are only three points clear of 18th-placed Valladolid.

As such, defeat in this encounter could get them sucked into the drop-zone, depending on results elsewhere. Regardless, they must do their own part to record a positive result here to move clear of the pack behind them. This fixture should make for a great spectacle.

Osasuna vs Alaves Predictions

Taking recent form into consideration, Alaves have to be considered favorites for the win. Their triumph over Eibar last time out will have them buzzing ahead of this fixture as they look to pick up from where they left off.

Surely, Osasuna will prove to be very difficult to overpower here but they haven’t shown to be strong enough to compete in the La Liga so far. This fixture should produce a couple of goals, with no less than two strikes on the scoresheet come fulltime.
