Osasuna to Win
Despite the fact that they suffered a devastating 4-1 loss in the last round at home against Valencia, our prediction is for Osasuna to win this match. They are still in better form than Alaves who started the season with three losses and they are simply the better team of the two. On top of all this, Osasuna beat Alaves in three of the last four matches in which Alaves was the host.
Alaves and Osasuna to Draw at Half Time
Even though we expect Osasuna to win this game at the end, we don't think it will be an easy job for them. So, we expect to see a hard-fought first half that will end in a draw. After all, the last five head-to-head duels between Alaves and Osasuna have all been equal at half times, which is an impressive statistic and a great sign for our prediction.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
When these two teams meet, a low-scoring match is practically a guarantee since four of the last five h2h duels between Alaves and Osasuna have gone under 2.5 total goals. That being said, Alaves averaged 3.00 goals per game so far in La Liga, while Osasuna averaged 2.5 goals per game this season. Still, we have a strong feeling that this match will bring their averages down.

Alaves vs Osasuna preview: A very close duel
The last season was a long and stressful for Alaves, but the team ultimately secured a spot in La Liga for this season after they finished four points ahead of the relegation zone. However, Alaves started the new season poorly with three straight losses, two of which came at home. On the bright side, there are no injured players at the club at the moment.
After the first four rounds of the new La Liga season, Osasuna is sitting in the 11th place in the standings with a win and a couple of draws, and a loss. While the loss came in the last round against Valencia, Osasuna has a good chance to get back on track against Alaves. However, Osasuna will miss Barja and Budimir due to injuries, so that could affect their performance as well.
