Osasuna vs Atletico Madrid Odds
In the last championship match, Osasuna played a draw at home with Sevilla 0:0. The first half passed without many chances on both sides, while in the second there were several opportunities for both teams to take the lead. However, the result remained unchanged until the end of the match.
They currently occupy the 12th position in the table with seven points, three less than sixth-placed Valencia. Before the match with Sevilla, Osasuna experienced three defeats against Getafe (3:2), Barcelona (1:2), and Athletic Bilbao (0:2), as well as two triumphs over Celta Vigo (0:2) and Valencia (1: 2). In the qualifications for the Conference League, they were eliminated by Club Brugge, with a total score of 4:3.
Osasuna will be without the injured duo of Jon Moncayola and Darko Brasanac, while Unai Garcia is questionable and will be assessed before kick-off.
Coach Jagobo Arrasata is expected to stick with a back four of Ruben Pena, Alejandro Catena, David Garcia, and Juan Cruz, while Sergio Herrera will keep the goalkeeping gloves at the expense of Aitor Fernandez. Raul Garcia and Kike Barja will both be looking to break into the starting 11, but the attacking trio of Ezequiel Avila, Ante Budimir, and Johan Mojica could retain their places in the final third.
In the city derby of the previous round, Atletico Madrid managed to beat Real Madrid at home with 3:1. Already by the 18th minute, the home team had a doubled advantage, and the scorers were Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann, while Samuel Lino and Saul Niguez were added to the list of assists. By the end of the half, the guests scored a goal, and the final result was set by Morat with his second goal at the beginning of the second half of the match.
Atletico Madrid has a game less than the other teams, and after five played rounds, they occupy the fifth position in the table with 10 points won, seven less than the first-placed Barcelona, but also two matches less. In addition to the triumph over Real, they also managed to defeat Rayo Vallecano (0:7) and Granada (3:1), as well as record a draw with Betis (0:0) and a defeat against Valencia (3:0). In the first round of the Champions League group stage, they drew 1:1 with Lazio.
Atletico is still without Thomas Lemar, Pablo Barrios, Caglar Soyuncu, Rodrigo De Paul, Reinild, and Vitol due to injuries.
Captain Koke recovered from a hamstring injury to start and play the first 45 minutes against Real Madrid, and another start in midfield could be on the cards for the 31-year-old, although he faces competition in Axel Witsel to line up alongside Marcos Llorente and Saul. Atletico were also boosted by the return of Memphis Depay last weekend, with the Dutchman recovering from a muscle problem to come on as a second-half substitute; a start on Thursday seems unlikely, given the impressive attacking performances of Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann last time out.

Since 2016, these two teams have played ten matches against each other, and every time Atletico Madrid triumphed.
Osasuna: Unai Garcia, Darko Brašanac, Jon Moncayol
Atletico Madrid: Thomas Lemar, Pablo Barrios, Caglar Soyuncu, Rodrigo De Paul, Reinildo, Vitolo
Osasuna (4-3-3): Herrera; Pena, Catena, D. Garcia, Cruz; Munoz, Torro, Oroz; Avila, Budimir, Mojica
Atletico Madrid (3-5-2): Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Hermoso; Molina, Saul, Llorente, Koke, Lino; Griezmann, Morata
Atletico Madrid is a slight favorite in this matchup due to their better form, head-to-head matchup, and standings in the table. However, Osasuna has the home-field advantage, so we cannot bet on a “clean two” with certainty. Also, a more closed match is expected, so our suggestion for betting is a draw or a win for the guests, with a maximum of three goals scored in the entire match.
