Team News: Osasuna
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the Osasuna manager Jagoba Arrasate to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Darko Brasanac (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Sevilla
Sevilla boss José Mendilibar has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Tanguy Nianzou (Hamstring Injury), Marcos Acuña (Muscular problems) and Marcão (Muscle fiber tear) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re of the opinion that Sevilla and Osasuna could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
We’ll see, but this looks like it could end up all-square. That’s why we have predicted a very even match with a 1-1 score draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
