Tip Reasoning

  • Osasuna and Bilbao were involved in 38% of all 0-0 draws in this La Liga season.
  • Both sides are in the bottom three for average total goals per league game.
  • Athletic Bilbao were drawing at both HT/FT in five of their last seven away league games.
  • Osasuna failed to score in six of their last eight league games

Mediocre mid-table clash could provide little for neutrals

Here we have a clash between two sides who are separated by just two points, neither look quite so bad to go down but at the same time, neither side will be vying for European places come the end of the campaign unless one can go on a huge run.

Only three La Liga sides scored fewer goals than Osasuna and Bilbao’s identical return of 17 this term, which is fewer than one per match on average for both sides. The hosts can at least take confidence in their manager’s strong record in H2Hs with Bilbao (W3, D2, L1).

Four of Osasuna manager Jagoba Arrasate’s six prior meetings with Bilbao produced under 2.5 total goals and that is likely to become five from seven here as two thirds of Osasuna’s home league games this term produced two or fewer goals.

A typical Athletic away day

Each of Athletic Bilbao’s away league games this season saw two or fewer goals scored, which is surely a source of frustration for both travelling fans and neutrals alike. Not only this, Bilbao failed to score in three straight away league games, so they will be hoping for a turnaround in 2022.

Given both the lacklustre scoring potential that both sides possess this term and the fact that both sides have players missing in large numbers, I predict a bore draw here. Under 2.5 goals is the main prediction, but I can see this game finishing without any goals scored.
