Osasuna hosts Elche in round 15 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Monday, November 29th at Estadio El Sadar (Pamplona)
Osasuna is approaching the upcoming game amid very weak results. The streak without victories in LaLiga amounts to five rounds (three defeats and two draws). Because of it, the Reds dropped to the 9th line in the standings, although they were in the European competition zone not so long ago. It is noteworthy that they could not even score a single goal in the last four rounds, conceding five times. The Pamplonians are still a team with low production. Nine matches ended with Under 2.5 goals scored. Osasuna does not shine at home (only one victory in seven matches with a goal difference of 4-10). For comparison, the club gained four victories on foreign pitches in seven games.

Elche has a new head coach. Fran Escriba, who helped the team maintain its position in the elite last season, has been sacked. Temporarily his place was taken by Pablo Manusovich. I strongly doubt that such a castling will benefit the Green-Whites. It's all about a very weak selection of performers. After 14 rounds, the team has 11 points. This is enough to be on the 18th line in the standings (relegation zone). The lag behind the saving 17th place is only one point. This means that there are still chances of maintaining a place in the elite. The Green-Whites have huge problems with creation: they have scored only 11 goals in 14 matches. It is noteworthy that only in two games did they score more than one goal. In seven away games, Elche earned four points (one victory, one draw, and five defeats).
In the 2020/2021 season, Osasuna was stronger than Elche at home with a score of 2-0. The Pamplonians have not scored more than one goal in their last eight home games. Six of those eight games ended with Under 2.5 goals scored. Osasuna, in my opinion, has an excellent chance of breaking a streak of failures. Whatever one may say, the Reds are stronger. Yes, they are not impressive at home this season. But before the streak of failures (three defeats and two draws), the team looked very solid and took points even from stronger opponents. Both Osasuna and Elche score little in the current season. There is a possibility that their head-to-head match will end with low production. Actually, I propose to bet on Under 2.5 goals scored. I think this bet is less risky.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
