Tip Reasoning

Between them these sides have picked up just one point from their last 10 league games so neither are in good form. Of the two though, it is Las Palmas who boost much greater quality and on home soil should get back to winning ways with relative ease.

They were involved in an incredible game on Wednesday night when they drew 3-3 away to Real Madrid. They could easily have had more than three goals and would have been gutted not to hold on for the win, having been 3-1 up against 10 men going into the final five minutes. That highlighted their defensive frailty to some extent and they have only kept clean sheets in 16% of their matches this term, so an away goal certainly can’t be ruled out here.

However, Las Palmas play with real quality at times, with Jonathan Viera frequently running the show from midfield. They’ve struggled to find a prolific number nine and have moved Kevin-Prince Boateng into the central forward role in recent games. He is their top scorer with 7 league goals and against weak opposition, backing Boateng to score anytime at 13/8 looks like great value.

Put simply, Osasuna are one of the worst teams to have played in La Liga, certainly since the turn of the century. They come into this game with just one win and only 10 points and they’ve conceded 2.36 goals per game on average and 2.42 away. No side in La Liga has conceded more goals than them but both teams have scored in 64% of their matches so they aren’t completely toothless in attack. While they have got more points on the road, it’s still a 67% defeat ratio away from home for them and they’ve taken only 3 points from their last 15 league games.

Therefore, this looks like an absolute home banker with Las Palmas averaging a solid 1.77 points per game at home. They’re an attacking team, well equipped to exploit Osasuna’s weak defence and backing Las Palmas & Over 2.5 Match Goals at 7/5 looks to offer value.
