After the international break the ball rolls again in the first Spanish league. For the Granada CF there is a chance to build on the great performance of the current season so far. The Andalusians receive the tough opponent CA Osasuna from the north of Spain.
Soccer Betting Predictions and Odds Granada vs Osasuna
Despite losing to Real Madrid last matchday, Granada still plays a major role in the battle for top-table positions. The surprise team from the league was able to win victories in a row and holds behind the three big Spanish clubs Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in fourth place.
For Granada against Osasuna, the odds are logically on the side of Granada. But how justified are these assessments of bookmakers?
Osasuna faces a difficult task. Granada has been able to offer both technically strong and militantly excellent football this season. However, Osasuna can also confidently go into the game on Friday night. The guests lost only one match of the season in the current season.
If one considers the pure market value of the players of both teams, then one can assume in principle a similar quality of both teams. The tactical routes, however, differ greatly from each other.
The Andalusians act more offensive and courageous, with a lot of pull to the gate. On the other hand Osasuna lives above all from his strong defensive.
Granada – Statistics & Current Form
Since the first match of the season, coach Diego Martinez’s team has shown what it’s made of. For a climber Granada acts conspicuously brave with a lot of train to the gate. Villarreal had felt this directly on the first matchday. The offensive Granada rewarded already then with four goals against the favorite.
The expectations are high. It remains to be seen if the Andalusians will stand the pressure to win. Before the current season would probably have evaluated the odds for meeting Granada against Osasuna with other odds.
The team had to go with a long list of injured players in the start of the season. However, this has in no way harmed the results – on the contrary! Gaining so many points over eight games can not be attributed solely to luck. The team has a clear gameplay philosophy, the players seem outstandingly coordinated, the chemistry within the team is just right.
Whether the Andalusians lead or lag behind, changes little in the militant commitment behavior of the players. Whether played at home or in the distance, it also does not matter much. In a leadership is still looking for a clear goal. An example of this is the 3-0 away win over Espanyol Barcelona on Matchday 3.
After the Andalusians took the lead, the match was continued and the team from Barcelona received a second and a third goal. Coach Diego Martinez lets Granada play refreshing football, with a casualness and lightness rarely seen in competitive sports.
For Granada against Osasuna is the tip obvious that the hosts will emerge victorious with their all-round harmonic style of play. Against a defensive well-structured Osasuna, the hosts could still have a hard time breaking through, which should be backed with a draw no bet.
Expected formation of Granada:
➤ Rui Silva – Neva, Sanchez, Duarte, Diaz – Montoro – Machis, Herrera, Azeez, Diaz – Soldado

Osasuna – Statistics & Current Form
The CA Osasuna has also sold well in the current season so far. The team around coach Jagoba Arrasate is in eleventh place and could only be defeated once against a very disciplined Real Madrid on Matchday 6.
Unlike Granada, the focus is clearly on the defensive. The team lurks on mistakes of the opponent to come to the goal. In the played nine games are only seven hits to book, on the other hand, however, were only allowed seven goals.
Accordingly, one could consider for Granada against Osasuna the tip that few goals will fall. The bookmakers suggest a relatively high probability of offered odds around the 1.50. However, Granada is a goal-scoring team.
Consequently, it turns out to be quite unclear whether the game will end up poor or rich in goals. For this reason, we prefer Granada to Osasuna’s prediction that Granada will win – with protection in case the match ends in a draw.
Expected formation of Osasuna:
➤ Ruben – Nacho Vidal, Adriane, Roncaglia, Estupinian – Roberto Torres, Oier, Fran Merida, R. Garcia – Adrian, Avila

Granada vs Osasuna Our Best Betting Predictions and Odds
Finally, for Granada against Osasuna, the prediction can be put on a tactical game. Osasuna will be defensive little, however, Granada will strive to force the gate to the gate with a lot of train. It remains exciting to see if Granada manage to score an early first goal or if the Andalusians will bounce off the walls of Osasuna.
A scoring Osasuna is considered much less likely, although the striker from Osasuna with character Chimy Avila will probably give everything as before. The very defensive-oriented basic structure of the team will be hardly changed, especially abroad. In the role of an offensive solo entertainer, Chimy Avila just has a damn hard time.
