Osasuna proved to be a club that has no ambitions for anything higher than the middle of the table in recent years, bearing in mind that in the previous three seasons they consistently finished between the 10th and 11th positions. As things currently stand, the club from Pamplona is well on its way to finishing the fourth consecutive season in the "golden" middle. Namely, Osasuna's impressive start to the season has faded lately, since they haven't won in three rounds, which is why they "slipped" to the 8th position in the table and currently have 24 points on their account - even though only three points "separate" them from the places that guarantee entry into one of the European competitions.

Mallorca, the club that moved from the third to the second rank in the period from 2016/17 to 2020/21, is well on its way to ties two consecutive seasons in the elite rank of Spanish football for the first time since 2013. The popular "Los Piratas" managed to secure survival last season with a lot of trouble, but now they are playing much better and their performance in LaLiga this year can be characterized as very good, so it is no wonder that they are considered one of the most pleasant surprises this season. The club from the Balearic Islands currently occupies the 10th position (out of a total of 20 teams) with 22 points won, which is only five points less than the European places.

Osasuna vs Mallorca Betting Tips: Under 2.5

These two teams are almost "equal" in the previous 10 clashes. The team from Pamplona managed to reach the triumph four times, while Mallorca achieved one less victory, and the other three duels ended with shared spoils.

Last season, both teams managed to achieve one triumph each. Goals have been a frequent occurrence between these teams lately, but we expect a slower pace now, given that both are defensively minded this season.

It is evident that Majorca lacks creation and imagination in attack, since they only "shaken" the opponent's net 14 times this season. However, their main "feature" is their defensive game, so the squad from the Balearic Islands is in last place in terms of goals. On average, we see only 1.6 goals in their games.

Throwing opponents out of rhythm is something Mallorca is very good at. They, for example, beat Atletico Madrid and Villarreal with "nil", while they barely conceded one goal each from Barcelona and Sevilla, so it's no wonder that they even ended 13 out of 16 LaLiga games with less than two goals.

The club from Pamplona also did not stand out in terms of efficiency in the so far course of the championship, since they scored 16 goals from the same number of LaLiga games, and that goalscoring performance places them in the group of the weakest "scorers" in the league.

One gets the impression that the one-month break due to the World Cup left consequences on Osasuna's goalscoring feeling, as Los Rojillos failed to score a single goal in both games in the second part of the season.

We are of the opinion that an "equal" clash awaits us at Estadio El Sadar, in Pamplona. Since both teams "cultivate" a firm and defensive style this season, everything points to the fact that very small details will decide this uncertain game. So we don't expect too much action on either side, which is why low-scoring is our pick.

Osasuna will be without the services of Nacho Vidal, who is still recovering from a muscle injury, and he should be replaced again by 21-year-old Diego Moreno in the position of right-back.

It is not yet known whether right-back Ruben Pena, who suffered a muscle injury in the match against Gimnastic in the Copa del Rey, will play, while Unai Garcia returns after serving a suspension.

Meanwhile, coach Javier Aguirre will have a fully healthy squad at his disposal, without a single injured player, which is great news. This means that they will come out in the strongest possible line-up.

The Mexican expert should choose the same line-up as against Real Valladolid last weekend. Also, 30-year-old Abdon Pratts scored the game-winning goal last time and will get more minutes this one for sure.
