Osasuna vs Real Sociedad Odds
Osasuna experienced a remarkable 2022-23 season, securing a seventh-place finish in La Liga and appearing in the Copa del Rey final. However, the current season has proven challenging for the club. To be specific, their record of four victories, two draws, and eight defeats in 14 matches places them in 14th position in the standings with 14 points, trailing even by 10 points behind the seventh-placed Betis.
Despite a promising phase with two wins in three games between October 1 and 20, Osasuna has garnered only one point in their last four matches, suffering losses to Real Betis, Girona, and Villarreal. Jagoba Arrasate’s team has encountered difficulties in finding the back of the net this season, registering just 16 goals in 14 games, coupled with one of the weaker defensive performances in the league, conceding 24 goals. Only the bottom two teams, Granada and Almeria, have experienced more defeats in La Liga during the 2023-24 season. Furthermore, Osasuna has secured just one home victory so far, defeating struggling Granada in October.
Although the team did not incur new injuries in their recent match against Villarreal, adjustments may be made for the upcoming game, with Ezequiel Avila and Raul Garcia potentially joining the lineup. Ante Budimir leads the team as the top scorer in the league this season with seven goals and will continue to play a pivotal role in the attack.
Darko Brasanac will remain sidelined for Osasuna due to a muscle problem, and Kike Barja’s availability for the home team is uncertain as he strives to overcome his muscle issue.
Real Sociedad heads into this match following a draw with Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League on Wednesday night. The Basque club had already secured qualification for the knockout stages before their encounter with the Austrian side and is set to compete with Inter next month for the top spot in Group D.
Additionally, Real Sociedad has clinched two league victories since their defeat to Barcelona earlier this month, overcoming Almeria and Sevilla, accumulating 25 points from 14 games and currently occupying the sixth position. The Basque side faces a six-point gap behind fourth-placed Barcelona, presenting a challenging task in the race for the top four, with Girona currently holding a Champions League spot alongside reigning champions Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
Coach Imanol Alguacil will have to navigate the absence of strikers Carlos Fernandez and Martin Mercelanza, both sidelined due to knee injuries. Mikel Oyarzabal, who returned to the squad against Salzburg after recovering from a recent injury, is expected to feature in the attack again this weekend.
Nevertheless, alterations are anticipated in the squad compared to the Champions League fixture. Hamari Traore, Takefusa Kubo, Umar Sadiq, Mikel Merino, and Robin Le Normand are set to rejoin the starting eleven.

Real Sociedad holds a slight advantage in this contest owing to their superior form, head-to-head record, and league position. Nevertheless, Osasuna enjoys the benefit of playing at home, introducing an element of uncertainty regarding a decisive victory for Real Sociedad. We anticipate a closely contested match with a limited number of goals. As such, our recommended betting option is either a draw or a victory for Real Sociedad, with a maximum of three goals scored throughout the entire match.
