Osasuna – Real Madrid
La Liga leaders Real Madrid will aim to get back on top when they visit Osasuna on Saturday. The match at the El Sadar is part of the 18th round of the competition. Are you ready to read our preview for it?
At certain moment of the season Real Madrid had some difficulties, but lately Zinedine Zidane’s team is starting to show the football that made them champions. Four wins and one draw in the last five matches – this is a pretty good record by Los Blancos lately.
Last weekend Real Madrid had to face Celta at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano and there were no fireworks, but Madrid did enough to win. Lucas Vasquez opened the score after 6 minutes of playing while Marco Asensio made it 2-0 in the second half. Meanwhile Asensio provided the assist to Vasquez and Vasquez provided the assist to Asensio. These two players were the stars of the game.
In the second half Zidane gave playing time to players like Hazard, Vinicius, Valverde and Odegaard. He has a lot of options for the next game.
Osasuna will give their all in order to take something from this match. The Pamplonians are in a real need of points right now as they are 19th in the table with 14 points won. Osasuna have won just three of their 16 matches in the league and this is not something which would allow them to remain in the elite division.
Last weekend Osasuna paid a visit to Real Sociedad in San Sebastian and won a point after a 1-1 draw at the Reale Arena. It was a precious point won at a difficult ground.
That’s the preview for the La Liga clash between Osasuna and Real Madrid at the Estadio El Sadar in Pamplona. Is this going to be another easy game for Madrid? Or maybe the hosts are going to surprise us?
