Bookmaker: Betfair

Atletico Madrid and Osasuna will face each other in La Liga this coming weekend. The match at the Wanda Metropolitano is slated to kick off at 5:30pm UK time on Sunday.

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid have recovered their form and are back in pole position to win the La Liga title this season. Diego Simeone’s side are at the top of the standings at the most with 80 points from 36 matches, four points clear of second-placed Barcelona and five ahead of defending champions and city rivals Real Madrid, who have played 35 games.

There could still be a twist in the La Liga title race, but Atletico will know that that have their destiny in their own hands. A win against Osasuna would be massive for Los Rojiblancos, and they will head into match against them on the back of a 2-1 home win against Real Sociedad.

Team News:

Luis Suarez will lead the line as always for Atletico. Angel Correa will also start.

Osasuna

Osasuna’s season is virtually over. Jagoba Arrasate’s side are 11th in the La Liga table at the moment with 44 points from 36 matches. They are not going to get relegated and will not end up in the European places.

Los Rojillos will head into the match against Atletico in Madrid on the back of a 3-2 win against Cadiz at home. It followed a 2-2 draw with Athletic Bilbao away from home in La Liga.

Team News:

Ante Budimir, who scored twice against Cadiz, will start again.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Atletico Madrid have scored 63 goals in 36 La Liga games this season.
  • Osasuna have scored 36 goals in 36 La Liga games this season.
  • Atletico Madrid have conceded 23 goals in 36 La Liga matches this campaign.
  • Osasuna have conceded 45 goals in 36 La Liga matches this campaign.
  • Atletico Madrid won 3-1 at Osasuna in October 2020.

Conclusion

It is hard to see Osasuna be too motivated for this game, as they have nothing to play for. Atletico have a much better team, and given what’s at stake for them in this game, they should be able to pick up all three points from the encounter with ease.

Prediction: Atletico Madrid to win 3-0
