Osasuna vs Real Madrid preview: TV channel, live stream options, predictions & possible XIs

Published: 14:05, 9 February 2020

Real Madrid will be looking to maintain their lead at the top of La Liga as they host an Osasuna side that’s enjoying life back in the top flight.

Zidane’s side are 13 games unbeaten in the league but crashed out of the Copa del Rey during the week after Martin Odegaard came back to haunt his former club in a dramatic 3-4 defeat at home to Real Sociedad.

Osasuna sit comfortably in mid-table following their promotion last season and have already held Barcelona at home this season. They’ve lost their last two but will be itching to get back on track against the league leaders.

With Messi and Co. hot on Real’s heels, it’s vital they continue to get results on their travels.

Ones to watch

Osasuna: Pervis Estupinan

Having joined on loan from Watford at the start of the season, Estupinan has excelled in Spain. The left-back has played 21 times in the league for Osasuna, scoring once and creating four more as his side are well on track to remain in the top flight for another season. Osasuna will surely be looking to secure his services permanently, but his performances will be no secret to Watford’s hierarchy.

Key stat: No Osasuna player has made more tackles (52) or interceptions (38) than Estupinan this season.

Real Madrid: Karim Benzema

Many would argue that Benzema never quite lived up to what was expected of him since he joined from Lyon but, this season, he has come into his own. He has shouldered pretty much all of the attacking responsibility in Real’s title charge and simply heightened his growing reputation by scoring the winner in the Madrid derby last time out.

Key stat: Benzema has scored 32.5% of Real Madrid’s league goals so far this season.

Team news

Osasuna

Real Madrid

Squawka prediction

Both form and head-to-head record of these two sides point only one way, really. League-wise, Madrid are absolutely flying after a shaky start to the season and on course to regain dominance in Spain, and maybe Europe, once more.

Scoreline prediction: Osasuna 0-2 Real Madrid
