Osasuna will host Atletico Madrid at home, Estadio El Sadar stadium on 19th Feb, Matchday 25 of La Liga.
Last time, Felipe Augusto’s header brought 3 points to the reigning champions at 87th minute. It’s not the game that El Cholo Simeone would be proud to recall.
Los Rojiblancos was the total upper-hand with 61% possession, but scored with only one goal, after 15 shots with only 2 on target.
Atletico Madrid is fighting for top 4, as the hope of defending La Liga’s trophy is fading.
Simeone and his players have already lost 7 games, almost double that of the whole season 2020/21 (4 games).
Meanwhile, Los Rojillos is looking forward to a place in top 10 for the 2nd time in La Liga since they returned.
Osasuna stunned the top tier of Spanish league with finishing at 10th in their first season since returning, La Liga 2019/20, and then 11th just last season.
Besides, Atleti has not performed well far from home lately, with 4 defeats in the last 6 away games. They also just lost to Levante at home in the Mid-week game.

By recent forms and performance, it’s hard to convince that Atletico will bring 3 points home when Osasuna hosts them this weekend.
However, Osasuna has always struggled against Atleti in the past 2 seasons. There’s a chance that Rojiblancos will earn 3 points this game.
