Osasuna is probably one of the most volatile teams in this elite competition and it seems that heavy defeats are nothing new or surprising to the players who knew how to suffer the humiliation of 0:8, 1:7, 1:5 and 0:6 result in the previous part of the season.
However, despite defeats in the last three of four games, the team Osasuna currently occupies seventh place in the standings and they could take a big step towards European qualification if they can record a victory over Malaga team, but it is much easier said than done because of their past results.
Malaga team has successfully made a scoring difference of taking just one point from the last two duels, but they still must now try to beat Osasuna team because their upcoming match against Valencia, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in the next three duels.
Malaga players have played pretty well for the last four games they had away, where they recorded two wins as a team they drew with Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Malaga is only beaten by Villarreal in the previous round but i can tell that the players in that game coach Manuel Pellegrini totally outplayed the yellow submarine only a lack of happiness and the way those two late goals received was crucial for their defeat in that game.
This is the meeting of two teams that still have such a position that made eventual winning himself open for a qualifying event outside the Spanish championship so I am confident that we expect a very open match which could see an option the sum of more than 2 goals.
