Osasuna vs Atletico Madrid Prediction: La Liga Match on 17.06.2020
Atletico Madrid will travel to Osasuna this week as they look for their first win since the La Liga season resumed, while Osasuna will be looking to continue their recent good form that has pulled them away from the relegation zone.
La Liga Preview
Osasuna may have had fears over their La Liga status over the winter, but any fears of that that have now been removed as they are ten points above the drop zone. Their form since the break saw them win two in four games, and a run of victories could leave them in a good position to finish in the top half of the table.
They restarted the season with a battling performance against Real Sociedad. Adrian Lopez gave Osasuna the lead in that game before Mikel Oyarzabal equalised with half an hour remaining. Osasuna defended excellently in that clash, as they only had 35% of the possession. This fixture against Atletico Madrid will also likely be a testing clash where they don’t have much of the ball.
It has been a disappointing season to this point for Atletico Madrid as they may have had hopes of finishing closer towards the title. However, they find themselves locked in a fight to secure a place in the Champions League. Atletico have a fight on their hands to achieve that as they are currently in sixth, and trail fourth-placed Real Sociedad by one point.
However, their form has been disappointing over their last five games as they have won just once. Their draw last time out against Athletic Bilbao was their third straight draw and highlighted the problems that Atletico have this season. They have won the joint-fewest games in the top nine of La Liga, and have drawn the highest number of games in the division. Diego Simeone will need to find a way to turn these draws into wins in order to achieve a Champions League finish.
