Osasuna 0-0 Celta Vigo – Betting Review


Betting Analysis

Looking at the 1×2 market first. Osasuna deserved to win but the draw was the winning outcome @ 3.00.

Moving onto the Asian handicap market for this contest. Both teams had the Draw no bet (DNB) as a cushion, so all bets pushed here.

Looking at The Under/Over goal line last of all, which was set at 2. Mostly due to Celta’s contentment at 0-0, it was a disappointingly tight affair. Apart from  a bright ten-minute spell at the start, it was a physical and scrappy match. The Under won @ 1.97.


Match Summary

In a largely tight and physical affair, Osasuna pushed harder for the win but left frustrated with a 0-0 draw.

Celta Vigo was put under heavy pressure both early in the contest and again, later in the second half. During both periods they relied on their back up keeper Ivan Villar to make a couple of outstanding saves to give them a share of the points.

The visitor arrived in good spirits and fine form but to the credit of Osasuna, Celta Vigo never settled into any attacking stride.

Celta had one sitter fluffed from close range around the hour mark but nothing else. They defended with bravery and held on to the draw.

At the end Celta were much happier with the points. Fair score 1-0.

It was a physical battle from the first whistle, with both sides trying to establish more control than they had.

Osasuna showed more ambition and had more possession, missing two good chances in the first ten minutes. For the best of which, Villar made the first of his great saves getting down low to palm away a powerful shot.

Celta looked to pick their moments on the break, with Iago Aspas at the heart of their rare attacking thrusts.

As the game quietened down and became bogged in midfield, Ávila flashed a half-volleyed effort just wide from long range.

The second half was more even at El Sadar, and 0-0 started to look increasingly likely.

With the match deadlocked, Osasuna took bigger risks and almost was punished on a break but for a bad finish from Gabri Veiga.

Back at the other end, Los Rojillos snatched what appeared to be the opening goal, but Ávila was adjudged to have been interfering with play after VAR checks. So the nice inviting cross that fell into the net was eventually ruled out for offside, and it remained 0-0.

In the final couple of minutes it looked almost certain to be 1-0. Veteran Kike Garcia knocked down a header which forced an amazing save from Ivan Villar.

The back up Celta Vigo keeper was undoubtedly their best player on the night, this late save ensured a relieved Celta came away with a hard fought draw.
