Valencia head to Osasuna in La Liga on Monday night for a crucial clash for both teams, with the two teams struggling at the bottom of the table.
The home side are enduring a nightmare campaign in La Liga this season. They currently sit bottom of the table, having collected just seven points from their 16 league games so far this season. The hosts are currently five points away from safety and opponents Valencia.
Osasuna’s recent form has been poor of late, as the bottom club have suffered defeat in their last six La Liga games. They have also failed to score in five of their last six league games.
To make matters worse Osasuna have not won any of the last eight meetings with Valencia in all competitions. However, a win in this clash could revive their fortunes and at least give them a chance of beating the drop this season.
Valencia are going through a poor run of form that has seen Los Ches drop down to 17th place in La Liga. In fact, they are only outside the relegation on their head-to-head with 18th place Sporting Gijon.
Los Ches have been poor on their travels of late in La Liga, losing their last three away games on the road. They have also been poor in defence in those three games, conceding at least two goals in each of the defeats.
The visitors have failed to win any of their last six games in the Spanish top-flight, having suffered three defeats and drawn the other games in that run.
Despite their recent poor form, the visitors will head into this clash against the bottom side as favourites for victory. Forebet predicts that Los Ches will record a vital victory at the bottom of the table and potentially move away from the relegation zone.
