Real Madrid vs Osasuna Preview

Real Madrid are back in action this Wednesday following a much needed boost in the form of a 1-0 win at Sevilla at the weekend. With Barcelona slipping up, things are suddenly looking quite a bit rosier for Los Blancos as they look to reach the summit of La Liga. They are up against newly promoted opposition here in the shape of Osasuna but they will know this could be a tricky game with the Pamplona side also yet to taste defeat this season.

Zinedine Zidane may look to freshen things up following two testing away days and with a huge derby clash at the Wanda Metropolitano coming up. He is a bit restricted in some areas, particularly in midfield but the likes of Nacho, Álvaro Odriozola, Fede Valverde and Vinicius Junior could all be drafted into the side for this one. Zidane may still feel as though he can’t risk dropping Karim Benzema though with the Frenchman again proving by far their biggest goal threat.

As for Osasuna, their blueprint this season looks pretty clear. They look solid defensively and are likely to come here with a very cautious approach but safe in the knowledge that they have a player like Chimy Avila who can always produce a moment of magic at the other end. They’ve impressed so far on their return to the top flight, although it is four straight draws for them heading into this one.

Clearly they’d be content with another one here. They may also look to bring in some fresh legs but they’ve had an extra couple of days to prepare having last played on Friday night so certainly it’s Real Madrid who are likely to make more alterations as these sides face off for the first time since 2017.

Score Prediction: 2-0 Real Madrid

Osasuna have impressed so far but they are a bit light on creative options and they may struggle to pose that many problems for a Real Madrid side that put in one of their most assured defensive performances in recent times last time out. The likes of Vinicius and potentially Luka Jovic will bring energy and desire to their attacking play and Los Blancos should be able to get the victory.
