The Lions are also undefeated in their last eight home matches in La Liga having registered five draws and three wins.
 
Marcelino, the Bilbao manager, says they are now focused on qualifying for a UEFA competition after dropping points against Valladolid. 
 
“We’ve lost points that perhaps we deserved to get. The draws have punished us in that respect," Marcelino said. 
 
"The team’s only lost three matches and has racked up so many draws, it makes you angry. If we’d managed to convert some of those draws into wins. 
 
"We’d be in the fight for Europe right now. “Out of all of those matches, we’ve only been able to keep a clean sheet four times and that has lost us points. It’s something we have to work on.”

Meanwhile, Osasuna succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid at home in their previous league encounter which was played on May 1.
 
The Reds are now winless in two matches in this competition having recorded two consecutive defeats. 
 
They are also winless in their last two matches on the road in La Liga having registered two successive defeats as the visitors. 
 
The last meeting between Bilbao and Osasuna in a league match was on 24 October 2020.
 
Osasuna claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Bilbao in an encounter which was played at the Estadio El Sadar.
