Sevilla will look to extend its dominance over Osasuna when the two clubs square off on Friday at El Sadar Stadium in the first match of the 2022-23 La Liga season. In the last 10 matches against Osasuna, Sevilla has recorded eight wins and two draws. Osasuna's last victory over Sevilla came in May 2013. Sevilla enter the season with new centerbacks on a defense that led La Liga in goals conceded (30) last season. Meanwhile, Osasuna's roster remains largely intact one season after finishing 10th in the La Liga table.

Why you should back Sevilla 

Sevilla helped address its goal-scoring issues from last season with the addition of free agent Isco. A 30-year-old midfielder, Isco played the last nine seasons with Real Madrid, winning 19 trophies including three league titles, five Champions League trophies and four Club World Cups. He scored 53 goals in more than 350 appearances for Real Madrid and immediately upgrades a Sevilla attack that scored just 53 goals last season, the fewest of any team in the top five of the table.

In addition, Sevilla faces an Osasuna club that struggled at the end of last season. Los Rojillos failed to win any of their last six La Liga fixtures, being outscored 10-4 in the process. They ended the season with a 2-0 loss at El Sadar to Mallorca, which finished 16th in the table.

Why you should back Osasuna

Los Rojillos face a Sevilla club that has revamped its defense. After conceding a La Liga-best 30 goals last season, Sevilla sold both of its centerbacks, Jules Koundé and Diego Carlos, this summer. The new defensive pair of Marcão and Karim Rekik lacks the quality and cohesion of Koundé and Carlos.

In addition, Sevilla comes into the match off poor preseason form. In their last three preseason matches, Sevilla won once and lost twice. One of the defeats was a 6-0 blowout at the hands of Arsenal in the Emirates Cup on July 30. One day later Sevilla lost 1-0 to Leicester City.
