Competition: La Liga

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/5 @ Pribet

In what could prove to be an action-packed La Liga showdown from El Sadar on Saturday lunchtime, Osasuna will welcome Villarreal to Navarre.

Starting with the hosts, managing to make a stunning return to winning ways last weekend as they stormed their way to a famous 4-1 romp away at Atletico Madrid, Osasuna will be desperate to use that sensational display as a platform to build on. Opening their season finale sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-half, Los Rojillos will be desperate to make another statement here. However, despite drawing a line under their six-match winless run last week, Jagoba Arrasate will have a headache over his side’s extended issues on home soil. Including an action-packed 4-2 defeat at the hands of Spanish champions Real Madrid, Osasuna have collected just a sole point from any of their last four La Liga showdown at El Sadar. Facing what could be a tough challenge when they sign off the 2023/24 campaign this weekend, the Navarre-based outfit have also shown some real defensive struggles over the past couple of months. In fact, Osasuna have collected just one clean sheet from any of their previous 10 outings.

As for the visitors, while Villarreal might have suffered Europa League heartbreak back in March as they fell to a 5-3 aggregate defeat against French outfit Marseille, the Yellow Submarine are enjoying a real domestic flurry. Last seen mounting a stunning second-half comeback at home against Real Madrid as they eventually snatched a 4-4 stalemate at the Estadio de la Ceramica, Marcelino’s men have lost just one of their previous seven appearances. Including a lively 3-2 win against Sevilla earlier in the month, the former Valencia boss will be excited by his side’s recent success in the final third. Along with signing off April with a 3-0 romp against Rayo Vallecano, Saturday’s guests have recorded at least a trio of goals in four of their last five showdowns. However, it should be noted, with Villarreal seeing four of their previous five away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting what could be another enjoyable La Liga showdown at El Sadar here.
