Osasuna vs. Real Sociedad Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Real Sociedad seeks to continue their push for a top-four spot in La Liga as they travel to face Osasuna, who have struggled in the 2023-24 campaign so far.

With Real Sociedad positioned sixth, six points adrift of fourth-placed Barcelona, Osasuna is currently 14th with 14 points from 14 matches.

Match Preview

Osasuna, having enjoyed a strong 2022-23 season, has struggled this term, securing only four wins, two draws, and eight losses in 14 games, leaving them in 14th place.

Despite a brief positive spell in October, they’ve struggled to maintain consistency, particularly in scoring, managing just 16 goals while conceding 24.

Real Sociedad, after a goalless draw against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League, aims to build on their two recent La Liga wins over Almeria and Sevilla.

With 25 points from 14 matches, they’re keen on breaking into the top-four spots and challenging for European contention.

Real Sociedad has an impressive record against Osasuna, winning their last five La Liga matches and staying unbeaten against them since 2012. Their recent form indicates a challenging task for the home side.
