THE PREDICTION

Osasuna are coming off a 0-5 hammering by Atletico so the only way is up for them. The mood in the camp will not be great after that and it does bring into question their motivation given the fact they are safe in mid-table. That heavy loss may see them switch back to five in defence for this visit to Valencia. The hosts endured their own difficult match against Real Madrid which they lost 3-0 but they have the quality to bounce back. They are without a whole host of players but they have a strong enough squad and the return of Gabriel at the back to boost them. They should get back to winning ways here and get back in the race for the European places.
