Atletico Madrid v Osasuna tips – back Atleti for title win

It’s been a long hard season for Atletico Madrid although it now appears that the team from the Spanish capital are going to win their eleventh La Liga title, with Diego Simeone returning to the winners’ enclosure after previously steering Atleti to a triumph during the 2013-14 campaign.

Simeone continues to be regarded as one of the world’s leading football managers and Atletico will clash with Osasuna on Sunday evening where they are heavy betting favourites to claim three points which will see the players and supporters celebrating at the final whistle.

Atletico Madrid Huge Betting Favourites to Win

The La Liga betting sites are taking no chances with their quotes about Atletico Madrid winning this clash, with the bookies offering a best price 2/7 about a team who moved to the verge of becoming champions when enjoying a slightly nervy 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad on Wednesday.

Incredibly, Atleti had less than 35% possession in this clash although early goals from Yannick Carrasco and Angel Correa provided enough of an advantage despite only having four shots on target and the home side were able to shut down their opponents thanks to a super-tight defence.

Atletico Madrid are now no bigger than 2/7 on the 2020/21 La Liga title betting market and it’s hardly a surprise when you consider that they have two bites of the cherry to get the job done. However, Simeone won’t want anything to hinge on that final game away to Valladolid.

Can Betting Outsiders Osasuna Be Party Poopers?

Osasuna are sitting comfortably in mid-table with two rounds of Spanish La Liga games remaining, with Jagoba Arrasate’s side having recently enjoyed three successive wins domestically against Villarreal, Elche and Valencia. However, their more recent results indicate that tools are starting to be downed.

Successive defeats away to Celta Vigo and Real Madrid was followed by an unconvincing 3-2 win over Cadiz and it’s hard to make a case for this team upsetting the applecart when it comes to this clash.

When the two teams met in the reverse fixture, Atletico Madrid came away with a 3-1 victory at El Sadar, with Joao Felix bagging a brace in this clash and it was a typically efficient performance from the visitors on that occasion.

What Are the Best Bets for Atletico v Osasuna?

As always, Atletico Madrid’s success has been founded on keeping things tight at the back and Simeone has always been a manager who is content with a low-possession style of football, with the reliable foot soliders who are Koke and Saul Niguez operating in tandem in the midfield department.

Therefore, while there’s not too much juice in the Atletico match betting odds about them winning the game, we’re anticipating that the champions-elect might win this clash without scoring and we’re happy to back the Madrid side to triumph at 17/20 without conceding a goal which would be typical of a team who like to edge their way to victory.

Indeed, it could be plausible to combine a couple of correct score betting options, with a 1-0 win in favour of Atletico trading at 5/1 and that can be permed with a 2-0 victory at 9/2 and that means we can secure a healthy profit by having a split stakes bet on both options.

We also think it could be worth contemplating the Under 2.5 Goals selection and that is trading at evens with some bookies, with Simeone in no mood to see an expansive game being played out and it might be that Atletico will look to cling to any advantage which is gained along the way.
