On the 38th day of LaLiga, a clash of titans is set to unfold. The seventh-placed Osasuna, with their eyes set on the Conference League, will be hosting Girona, the ninth-placed team with their own European dreams. The stakes are high, the tension palpable, and the prediction? Let’s dive in.
A Tight Race to the Top
Osasuna, the Gorritxoak, are teetering on the edge of glory. They’re a hair’s breadth above Athletic Bilbao, and a mere point clear of Girona. The battle is so tight that even the 12th placed Mallorca, just three points behind, could upset the apple cart. But a win here, and Osasuna secures their ticket to the Conference League.
Their recent form, however, has been a mixed bag. Their last outing saw them take an early lead against Getafe, only to lose 2-1. This marked their fourth loss in six league games, with three of those defeats coming against top-form sides. But their home form tells a different story. They’ve won ten league games at home, including four of the last five.
Girona’s Struggle for Consistency
Girona, on the other hand, has been grappling with inconsistency. Their recent form has been less than stellar, with only two points earned from their last four league matches. Their last match against Real Betis saw them take the lead, only to lose 2-1. This marked their second consecutive home league defeat.
Their away form has been equally unpredictable. Out of 18 games, they’ve only managed to win three, draw seven, and lose eight. Their last seven away league fixtures have seen just one victory.
The Final Verdict
Osasuna’s Conference League qualification hangs in the balance. A loss to Girona could spell the end of their European dreams. Girona, however, is not in the best of forms with no wins in their last four league fixtures. Based on current form and home advantage, our prediction is a home win for Osasuna.
