OSA vs ATH Dream11 Prediction for Osasuna vs Athletic Bilbao La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

OSA vs ATH Dream11: This match could be viewed as a Basque derby – although quite a few Osasuna fans won’t like that tag. Regardless, it is an evenly matched encounter between two of Spain’s middle-of-the-table sides. Osasuna have been exceptional on the road this season but their conservative and stubborn approach has failed to consistently be enough for points at home, whereas Marcelino’s Athletic have stagnated this season after he took charge in January 2021. The former Valencia manager has created a side with the ability to be elite in attack – but that is far too often a rarity – and stodginess often takes over. A low-scoring draw would appear a likely outcome for this one.

Who will win today’s OSA vs ATH match?

  • Athletic Club come into this one having suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid despite a goal from Oihan Sancet. The Basque side lost to Real Madrid twice in the space of three weeks and should have secured at least a point on both occasions.
  • Prior to the Real Madrid defeat, Athletic Club had beaten Real Betis, lost to Sevilla and drawn with strugglers Getafe. They head into this one in 10th position, four points off the top-seven despite having played a game more.
  • Marcelino’s men will be desperate to get back to winning ways here, and they should manage it against an Osasuna side in very poor form.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Athletic Bilbao in this clash is 2.50 as per bet365.
