BETTING PREVIEW - OSASUNA vs VALENCIA - LA LIGA

We maintained all along Osasuna would struggle in La liga, because they don’t have funds to bring in quality players. In fact, before the season started they sold 20 year old Mikel Merino to Dortmund for €3.75 million and banked the money!. The only players the Pamplona club spent money on was Sergio Leon (€1.75 m) and Fran Merida (500k), and others were free transfers.  In order to show the quality of this 27 man squad, lets say Osasuna have just one international player.

And, it doesn’t get any better knowing that Joaquin Caparros has been fired has head coach. Petar Vasiljevic is now the man in charge, and for the record the 46 year old was youth coach here between 2008-2010. From what we understand he’s not been in charge of any league team since then. In our opinion the club have clearly looked for a cheap alternative, and only given the Serbian a six months contract.

The hosts have won just one from their seventeen matches to date, and they have taken just seven points . At the El Sadar the Reds are just 0-2-6 from eight league matches, and they lost their last. On tuesday night Osasuna lost a cup match to Eibar (0-3), and it gets worse again. Afterall, coach Vasiljevic will be without eight players. They are Miguel Flano, Dijard, Riviere, Tienza, David Garcia, Fuentes, Javier Flano and Merida.

Peter Lim is a self made businessman and known for his generosity to charity. However, as the owner of a football club, he appears to be falling short. We say that because his Valencia have had six managers over three seasons, and they are clearly under-performing. Voro is again the caretaker manager, it’s the third time he finds himself in this situation.

Los Che come into this match on the back of a 1-4 defeat to Celta Vigo in last weeks cup. With regards to that match, Voro changed four from five of his back line (go lie included), and another two players up the field. It’s probably fair to assume Los Che won’t be able to turn the tie in the reverse leg, and nor will the want!

The fact is the visitors are just one place above the drop zone, and the la liga is much more important. Valencia haven’t won in the league since a 1-2 in Gijon, but they had been a tad unlucky before the break.  

Voro is without Cancelo, Gaya, Garay, Abdennour and Cartabia this evening. Nevertheless, with a squad of players that is valued at about ten times that of Osasuna, it’s easy to see a massive gulf in class.

PREDICTION

Valencia might be wavering near the relegation zone, but they have a couple of games in hand and the squad to do much better. Team news gives another advantage, and with their own fans getting on their backs playing away can be a positive. We can’t imagine anything less than an away win!

BET: VALENCIA -0.5

Odds: 1.97 (1.98 SBO - 1X2 market)
