Athletic Bilbao vs Osasuna Match Preview
Athletic Bilbao’s main focus now this season has to be the Copa del Rey, for which they can keep their momentum bubbling by beating Osasuna in La Liga on Sunday.
It could be said that the King’s Cup competition in Spain this term has fallen apart with none of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Sevilla having made it through to the semi-finals. That leaves the four remaining teams with a great chance of clinching Champions League football for 2020-21 by lifting the trophy.
At present, the final looks like being a Basque derby between Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad, both of whom will take one-goal leads into the second leg of their semi-final ties away from home against Granada and second-tier Mirandes respectively.
But that is the best part of three weeks away and so Athletic Club, as they like to be known, must first try to boost their slim chances of qualifying for Europe via the league – it’s not an impossible task but, in ninth position in the table entering the weekend, they have plenty of ground to make up.
However, Gaizka Garitano’s side are at their best when playing at the San Mames, where they have a terrific defensive record this term, while Osasuna have lost their last three games.
The Pamplona club have been defeated either 3-1 or 4-1 in each of those matches, so there could be a goal for them here, but ultimately Athletic Bilbao are expected to be too strong.
