Profit: 18.50 - 10 = 8.5
Odds are too high for this, and they will go down to 1.6 or 1.7 in no time I think.
Some say Osasuna has no more chances to reach Europa League, and I'm calling all of them wrong.
The key is that Osasuna is playing against Real Sociedad and against Santander in their last two games.
Santander really does nothing anymore and it shouldn't be that hard, but firts... La Real!
Real Sociedad, Athletic Club, Osasuna and Alaves, with some others maybe, are the teams that have been in 1st division from Navarra and Euskadi. Historically, they have been helping each other achieve their goals in the last stages of the leage.
Help a team scape relegation, help another win the league... there are many cases, and this has been true for about 5 times in history of spanish football.
Coming to this match, Real Sociedad has nothing to play for. Really nothing, the points are useless to them, while Osasuna wants to reach Europa League, and they have a pretty easy path as I commented earlier.
There's just one case when the "friendship" didn't apply, and it was 5 years ago when Osasuna won against La Real by 2-0.
Real Sociedad was fighting to avoid relegation and Osasuna didn't need the points but there was money in between, from the other clubs trying to escape relegation, and that's why Osasuna went for the win.
The supporters there at the field were swearing to their own players and to the club leaders.
I know it's bad quality, spanish news of the time. Check seconds 30, when Osasuno supporters were chearing Real players at warming up.
Second 40 when Osasuna scores and the supporters bash them for doing it, and just go on and you will see how they call their players "Mercenaries".
This are pictures from that same year:
Showing how good the team's relationships are.
Now, for this game, I hope Real Sociedad players, who just cam back to 1st division this eyar after finally relegating at 2006/07 don't take that into account and put an easy game to Osasuna.
And it's not only the friendship that matters in this game.
Osasuna has been one of the best teams when palying at home this season. They have been outstanding as hosts, and they come to this game fully prepared to reach Europa League.
Real Sociedad is not on a specially sweet moment, but they don't really care about the season anymore, as it's over for them, and they are jsut palying it out.
I'm confident on Osasuna to win tomorrow and take a spot at Europa League for next season.

Why did you say that? Early goal from Osasuna and game won. Coudln't watch it, did Real fight a lot? btw, I had 3/3 for today's Spanish League, 4/4 if you cound a bet on "Messi to score a penalty" at very high odds haha Just didn't post it because of time. Had a busy day yesterday, and another busy day today.
Something rare here Crator, i thing the have agree a DRAW, fuck!
Yes, we all know here these both teams are very 'friendly'
Thanks boobstore. We people from spain know about this stories. I forgot to add that in Spain, it is legal to accept money to win a match. It is illegal to accept money to lose a match. But no one cares if there is no money involved. As a note, back in 2006/07 season almost everyone knew Osasuna were being paid if they won that game, and it happened. Right now no one is paying Real Sociedad to win, because it would be too much of a work for the Europa League contenders to do it. I think it's quite a safe bet.
I like this TIP!
