Osasuna are flying in the La Liga 2 and could move into top spot with a victory today against struggling Albacete. Hosts have four wins, three draws and a defeat from opening eight games of the season and currently sit in 3rd place with 15 points and having a game in hand over top two teams. They also have the league meanest defense conceding just five goals in eight games keeping a clean sheet in four of their last six games. The aim for the season is to at least make the play-off spots and they even have a chance of making the top two spaces if recent performances are anything to go by. They remain unbeaten at home with two wins and two draws.
Albacete have just two wins, a draw and five defeats in eight games. They sit in the 21st position on the log with just seven points and although they could climb out of the relegation spot with a victory today, it seems highly unlikely given the form their opponents are in. They have been equally dismal playing away from home having three losses and a draw. The visitors seems to be scoring lately as they have found the back of the net in five of their last six games in all competitions, including their last three away games which has all ended in defeats.
This game sure looks like a straight forward home win and Osasuna are heavily favoured to win this game at a decent prize of 1.53 with bet365, but this games can be tricky at times and both teams played together a month ago in the Copa del rey which ended in a 3-2 victory for the hosts. While a home wins looks guaranteed for this game, I choose the rather tasty offer on the both to score market which is priced at over evens. This bet would have paid out in 4 of 5 Osasuna home games in all competition and in the last two duels between both clubs.
