Atletico v Osasuna-Monday night La Liga

Atletico v Osasuna-Monday night La Liga

After their disappointing 0-0 draw with Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League, Los Colchoneros will be expected to get back to winning ways when they host 12th placed Osasuna at the Vicente Calderon.

As Everton fans are aware, Sporting are a good team.

Atletico did play against ten men for the better part of an hour though, and worryingly forged few clear goalscoring chances.

Kun Aguero (9/2 to score first, 5/4 anytime) did, however, look sharp and put in a very impressive all round performance. If I had to pick a scorer in tonight's game, it would be the pint sized Argentinean.

While Kun has recovered his confidence, his Uruguayan strike partner Diego Forlan (4/1 to score first, 11/10 anytime) has looked very, very tired in recent games and consequently has not been at his free scoring best.

Atletico (8/11) played poorly in Zaragoza last week and can consider there selves very, very lucky to have salvaged a draw in injury time.
Tonight's opponents Osasuna (19/5) will not be a pushover, and have a very good record against their hosts; in their last four league meetings, Osasuna have won three and drawn one.

Osasuna have, however, lost their last two away games in La Liga and are winless in their last four outings. To their credit, they do have four away wins overall-which compares favourably to most La Liga teams.

Due to past history, I considered the draw (13/5), but picked Atletico on my small stakes accumulator and expect them to win a close match.

I said that I didn't forecast, but I like to pick a match result for every game- and give fair warning to readers if I'm not certain of a result. I'm not certain with this one, but an Atletico win (8/11) would give me 8/10 correct match picks. Even if I wrong, 7/10 is better than most!

For sake of future previews: If you like to bet on specific markets, let me know which ones and I'll highlight the selection that appears to be your best option.

Please note: offering to do this does not mean that I am tipping or betting on them myself, I like what I like but everybody is different.

Enjoy the action and don't forget that you can bet In-Play with William Hill Online.
