The main objective for Osasuna in this season is survival in the top flight. Team from Pamplona managed to record 17 consecutive home victories, in their second season in Segunda division and promote themselves to La Liga from top table position.
Managed by Jagoba Arrasate, who already has a La Liga experience, since he spent 2013/14 season as main coach of Real Sociedad, Osasuna have all necessary qualities to make their home ground one of the La Liga fortresses and avoid relegation worries.
Consequently, team from El Sadar stadium is not in the bookmakers' first round of relegation candidates and betting odds to Osasuna to be relegated are about 3.75.
Another reason why odds are so optimistic is good form at the beginning of the season. Without defeat at the first four rounds and significant draw against Barcelona in the third round made their mid-table position hopes more realistic.
