Atletico Madrid – Osasuna
After winning a point against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, now Atletico Madrid continue to chase a qualification for the next season of the Champions League. Diego Simeone’s team is currently 3rd in the standings, having a point advantage over Sevilla. The could hardly beat Real and Barcelona for the first two positions, but they could still winning the 3rd, granting a direct qualification for the Champions League. This weekend Atletico hosts Osasuna and here are our soccer betting tips for this clash.
This isn’t a difficult game to predict as Atletico are one of the strongest teams in the country, while Osasuna are the weakest side in La Liga this season. The club from Pamplona won just 17 points from the start of the season and most surely they are going to relegate back to Segunda very soon.
The difference in terms of quality between the two teams is really great. If we also mention that Atletico will have the home ground advantage, then the chances of Osasuna taking something from the Calderon look even slimmer.
This week Atletico have a game against Leicester City in the Champions League, so most probably Cholo Simeone will make some rotations in his squad for this game. But he has enough options to choose from, so the rotations probably won’t affect Atletico’s performance against Osasuna.
Simeone can’t use the suspended midfielder Koke, while Kevin Gameiro, Nicolas Gaitan, Tiago and Sime Vrsaljko are doubtful for the game. Bernabé and Augusto Fernandez are ready to come back after a successful recovery.
Osasuna will be without Tano Bonnin, Miguel Flano and Didier Digard, who are still unavaliable. Imanol Garcia, Raoul Loe and Romero Gomez Jaime are doubtfu, while Javier Flano is ready to come back for the away team.
In our soccer betting tips for the clash between Atletico and Osasuna we advice you to trust Atletico in this one. Osasuna already gave up in the league and they can’t challenge a team with Atletico’s quality in any way.
