Osasuna surprised us over the weekend, beating Sevilla 3:2 on the road. The Pamplona side would concentrate on the first semifinal, not on that La Liga match. But they made it to the country's south, defeating their opponent in a productive game. Before that, they could not win for four games, scoring only once, and something changed then. Osasuna sits eighth in the Spanish league standings. They can even reach sixth place, that is, for the position in the Conference League zone. But the fifth line is seven points ahead of them, and catching up with Betis won't be easy. So, the Spanish Cup is a better option for the Pamplona side if they want to participate in the Europa League next season and claim the trophy. For Osasuna to win, the second most important tournament in Spanish soccer is a milestone.
Almost everything said about Osasuna also applies to Athletic. In La Liga, the Basques are 9th, one point behind Osasuna. They are competing for sixth place, but it is unlikely to get the fifth in La Liga. The Lions came to the match against Pamplona with two defeats. The Basques lost to Atletico Madrid and at home to Girona (2:3). The result is not quite typical as they usually only concede a goal per game, but three at a time, and even from not the top Spanish team.
Expert Betting Tips
For both making it to the Copa del Rey final is an achievement, so this game is the most important one now. However, the opponents approach the game with a slightly different mood. Athletic failed two matches, and Osasuna beat Sevilla away on the weekend. We think both teams will concentrate on defense first since the return leg is still coming. Minimal risk, maximum reliability. In general, both have a good defense, so the TU (2.5) has an excellent chance to work out. As for the outcome, we are on the hosts' side. We believe that the field factor will be crucial in this game, and only one goal will decide the match's fate.
