Tobias Gourlay is bullish about the prospect of seeing a few goals in La Liga this afternoon
Osasuna v Alaves
Thursday 15:15 (Live on FreeSports)
In Spain yesterday, there was as many red cards as there were goals in Granada’s clash with Valencia. Happily for us, the number in both cases was three. The hosts won 2-1 to land our Over 2.5 Goals bet.
We’re sticking in Spain for our final bet of 2020. One of this afternoon’s two La Liga games brings 13th-placed Alaves to 19th-placed Osasuna. The home side won this fixture 4-2 last season and at pick-em prices we’ll take both teams to score again today.
Jagoba Arrasate’s Osasuna have scored in 6/7 appearances at El Sadar this season. They start as favourites to take all three points in Pamplona today, despite having not won any of their last four home games and conceding nine times in total across those matches.
Pablo Machin’s visitors have conceded in 6/7 on the road this term and look eminently capable of leaking again today. At the other end, the outsiders can do their bit to make a game of it: Alaves have scored in 5/7 away from home. With two shaky defences going head to head this afternoon, we’ll back both teams to score.
