Osasuna had a decent 2021-22 season finishing 10th in the La Liga standings which was much higher than the predictions. They won 12 of 38 games with 15 losses and 11 draws.
Osasuna failed to win in any of the last six games last season and are hoping to put an end to their streak when they host Sevilla.

Osasuna possible lineup: Herrera, Areso, Cote, Cruz, Garcia, Barja, Brasanac, Martinez, Torres, Avila and Barbero
Ante Budimir and Kike Garcia are questionable for Osasuna for the game against Sevilla.
Sevilla Stats & Form
Sevilla was second in the La Liga standings for most of the last season but in the end, they failed to fourth place which was enough for another UEFA Champions League season.
They finished last season with 18 wins, a league-high 16 draws, and a league-low 4 losses as many as Real Madrid.
In four of the last five La Liga games last season, Sevilla played a draw which was the main reason why Barcelona and Atletico Madrid finished above them.
The only new player that Sevilla signed in the summer transfer window is Marcao from Galatasaray who was paid €12 million.
Diego Carlos is the best player that left Sevilla as he joined Premier League squad Aston Villa for €31 million.
Sevilla possible lineup: Dmitrovic, Acuna, Kounde, Rekik, Montiel, Corona, Delaney, Gudelj, Rakitic, Ocampos and Romero
Team manager Julen Lopetegui will have his full roster available for the game against Osasuna.

Osasuna vs Sevilla Betting Odds
Sevilla is the favorite to win this game with 129 odds in their favor while Osasuna is at 224. The odds for the draw are at 224.
The total goal margin is set at 2.5 with 134 for over and -167 for under.
Sevilla has been dominating Osasuna in the past decade and knowing the current state of both squads, that will probably be the case in La Liga’s season opener. Sevilla has been close to the top of the league in recent years but could not keep the pace until the very end of the season. In order to have a chance to do that, they need to start the season well and anything but a win when they visit Pamplona will be considered a failure. Sevilla has good players on every spot of the pitch and can create goal opportunities at any moment. Osasuna plays well at home and will have a packed stadium which definitely goes in their favor. Anyway, Sevilla is the better team and will be able to pull this one out and win three points at the start of the season.
