Our Favourite Osasuna vs Elche Predictions

If you are not sure what is the right bet for the Osasuna vs Elche duel, check our top betting tips for this game, but make sure to check our other La Liga predictions too.

Osasuna to Win

While the team from Pamplona has been in poor form in the league recently, they achieved a great success by reaching the final of Copa del Rey after eliminating Athletic Bilbao this week in a thrilling duel that required extra time.

Meanwhile, Elche remains last in the standings by a good margin and they will almost certainly play in the second rank of Spanish football next season. So, even though Osasuna might be tired after their mid-week Copa del Rey game, Elche is simply so bad this season. With that in mind, our first Osasuna vs Elche prediction is for the home team to win the game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last three duels between these two teams have all gone under 2.5 total goals, so our next Osasuna vs Elche prediction is for this game to end with fewer than three goals being scored.

Furthermore, Osasuna only averaged 1.81 goals per game in the league this season, which is the worst average of all teams in La Liga. Meanwhile, Elche averaged 2.74 goals per game so far.

Osasuna – Elche Preview: Recent Form, Team News, and Possible Lineups

This is a very interesting matchup, so let's check both teams out in more detail ahead of their meeting, including the probable Osasuna vs Elche lineups:

Osasuna

Just one win in the last six games in La Liga is hardly a good haul for Osasuna, but the team from Pamplona remains in the middle of the standings despite that poor run. More importantly, Osasuna secured a spot in Europe for next season by getting to the Copa del Rey final earlier this week, so their fans won't mind the poor form in the league too much.

Another positive for Osasuna is the fact that they don't have any injuries at the moment.

Osasuna Predicted Lineup:

Herrera – Moncayola, Aridane, D. Garcia, Cruz – Torro, M. Gomez – R. Garcia, Oroz, Ezzalzouli – Avila

Elche

With four losses in the last six games in La Liga, Elche continues to struggle and they are convincingly in the last place in the standings, which was the case for the majority of the season. Only eleven games are left in the season and Elche is fourteen points behind the first team in the relegation zone, so they will need a miracle to stay up.

Meanwhile, the team will be without injured Randy Nteka and Enzo Roco in their next match.

Elche Predicted Lineup:

Badia – Palacios, Bigas, Mascarell, Clerc – Morente, Cheikh, Gumbau, Fidel – Boye, Milla
