Osasuna: A. Fernandez, Marc Bertran, Miguel Flano, Arribas, Damia, F.Silva, Punal, Armenteros, de las Cuevas, R. Torres, Nunez
Real Valladolid-Osasuna Prediction:
Elbert’s return will boost Valladolid’s frontline. The veteran striker Javi Guerra is their main goal-scorer, with 7 goals already in the season. Osasuna would love to have a striker of his caliber, as the team has struggled to score goals all through the season. Oriol Riera Magem often had to plough a lone furrow upfront.
Historically, this match leans towards a draw. However, judging by the teams potential, a win for Valladolid would be more likely.
