High odds soccer predictions for underdogs
La Liga champions Barcelona host Osasuna at the Montjuic in a match from the 20th round of the Spanish elite division. Let’s see what we can tell you about it in our High odds soccer predictions for underdogs.
Barca were heavily rocked by a 3-5 defeat against Villarreal at home in the previous round. After the match Xavi Hernandez announced that he will leave the club in the summer. It means that now Barcelona must look for a new manager. But Xavi is expected to finish the season, hopefully – with less pressure on his shoulders.
Everything went wrong for the Catalans against the Yellow Submarine. They scored three times and it was good, but conceding five goals at home – it happened for a first time since many years.
Now Xavi could look for some changes in the line-up against Osasuna. We expect to see Joao Cancelo returning to the line-up as he started from the bench against Villarreal. Meanwhile Pedri should return in the starting eleven as well while the same could be said about Ferran Torres as well. Joao Felix, Oriol Romeu and Hector Fort are going to sit on the bench.
Osasuna will try to hurt Barca in a moment when Los Cules are in a knockdown. The Pamplonians could avenge their defeat against Barcelona for the Spanish Super Cup. In the league they are 12th in the standings with 26 points.
In their last game Osasuna made their 5th draw for the season. Arrasate’s boys faced Sevilla away from home and got a point after a 1-1 draw. The hosts opened the score, but Ante Budimir equalised in the second half of the game.
That’s the High odds soccer predictions for underdogs for the La Liga clash between Barcelona and Osasuna in the Catalan capital. It’s a dramatic moment for Barca and Xavi, but let’s see how they are going to react to it.
