Match preview

No La Liga team has been busier than Real Betis in 2022 but, now that fixture congestion is easing, can they find some form?

Between 2 January and 20 March, los Verdiblancos played 20 matches, an average of a game every 3.85 days.

This saw them reach a first Copa del Rey Final for 16 years with Manuel Pellegrini's men facing Valencia at the Cartuja in just three weeks time.

But, the fatigue may have derailed their progress in other competitions with Betis bowing out the Europa League at the last 16 stage against Frankfurt last month.

Also, in La Liga, a goalless draw with Celta de Vigo last time out means they're fifth, despite having been third for 11 consecutive weeks just before that.

Béticos could still gatecrash the top four but need to ensure they remain in the top six, guaranteeing European qualification regardless of the Copa Final.

As for Osasuna, since wining the Segunda title in 2019, they've ended up tenth and 11th and are very much on course for more mid-table safety.

Los Rojillos moved back into the top half before the international window, beating bottom of the table Levante 3-1 at El Sadar.

Ezequiel Ávila, Ante Budimir and Darko Brašanac on target.

Freed from the threat of relegation, Jagoba Arrasate's side have won four of their last eight, only losing to Atlético, Barça and Real Sociedad in this period.

Nevertheless, Real Betis are favourites to win at Estadio Benito Villamarín.

Martín Montoya remains a long-term absentee at right-back where Youssouf Sabaly could return in place of Héctor Bellerín.

In goal, Claudio Brave has started three of the last four league games so appears to be the number one, over Rui Silva or Joel.

Borja Iglesias got the not against Celta de Vigo last time out but, in general, Willian José has been the first-choice striker.

Joaquín, still going strong at 40, started a Copa del Rey Final for Betis against Osasuna 16 years ago and could win the trophy again later this month.

Osasuna team news

Jagoba Arrasate will continue to deploy and attacking line-up featuring Chimy Ávila and Ante Budimir who both scored against Levante.

Further back, Darko Brašanac, Jon Moncayola and Lucas Torró form one of the best midfield trios outside the traditional super clubs in La Liga.
