On September 12, within the framework of the 5th round of the Spanish Examples, a face-to-face meeting between Almeria and Osasuna will take place. It will start at 19:00 GMT.
La Liga 2022-23
Newly promoted Almería have had a mixed start to the season and will now host Osasuna after a 0-1 defeat to Real Valladolid last weekend, which they conceded in the 93rd minute.
But now they have recorded the worst start to their 2014/15 campaign as the club ended up being relegated and also lost at home on Matchday 5 that season, history may not be on their side here.
Ruby’s manager stated that the tight match against Valladolid “should have ended in a draw” although it would be a surprise if the game ended goalless given that his team had not seen 0-0 in all competitions since November 2021.
This result was helped by Almería scoring in 12 consecutive matches before losing to Valladolid, including a 2-1 victory over Sevilla.
Osasuna had the best start to a La Laliga campaign this century as they beat Rayo Vallecano 2-1 in stoppage time last time.
In fact, Osasuna have had a dismal record on the road lately, having only won one of their last eight away games, although they can be sure of an improvement in that record against Almería, whom they have beaten in their last four league games.
While they were also impressive when visiting promoted clubs last season. Osasuna got 9 points. At the very beginning, she defeated Sevilla (2-1), after which she dealt with Cadiz (2-0).

Osasuna have exceeded expectations this season and have been in impressive form in the early rounds of this campaign.
Ante Budimir and Moi Gomez often play a decisive role in winning matches when they show all their abilities.
Almeria have not yet been successful this season and will have to work hard to keep their place in La Liga. Osasuna are favorites for this match.
Match prediction: Osasuna to win.
