Real Madrid will look to keep the pressure on current La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid when they travel to Osasuna on Saturday at 8pm (UK time).
The reigning champions are unbeaten in seven matches, which includes a run of six wins, and currently sit second in the table, just two points below Atletico, but having played two games more. Zinedine Zidane will know his side’s prospects of defending their crown will rest on not slipping up in games like this weekend’s.

Osasuna vs Real Madrid build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
A comfortable win last time out for Los Blancos has once again set the wheels in motion for a title challenge having dropped points the match prior against Elche. Zidane will feel confident against a relegation candidate, but his side have not been infallible against less formidable opponents this season, with newly-promoted Cadiz, out-of-sorts Valencia and middling Alaves all claiming wins over the Madrid giants.
Osasuna will take that as a slight crumb of encouragement entering this contest. Jagoba Arrasate’s side are currently 19th in the table and winless in 10 games, though they did beat Real’s early-season nemesis, Cadiz, back in October and have not lost in the last three matches, drawing successive games.
- Osasuna (vs Olot): Goni; Barja, Garcia, Navas, Roncaglia; Torres, Calvo, Oier, Jony; Gallego, Budimir.
- Real Madrid (vs Celta Vigo): Courtois; Carvajal*, Varane, Nacho, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Vazquez, Asensio, Benzema.
Rodrygo Goes remains absent for Real, while Dani Carvajal will sit this one out through suspension, having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season last time out. Zidane should be able to welcome back club captain Sergio Ramos though, despite the skipper not yet signing a new contract, with his present deal expiring in less than six months.
The hosts, meanwhile, are without Chimy Avila and Ruben Martinez, but Oier is back from suspension and Arrasate is likely to make wholesale changes from the team that beat third-tier outfit Olot in the Copa del Rey during midweek.
Players to watch: Eden Hazard (Real Madrid)
Eden Hazard recently celebrated his 30th birthday and he could give himself a belated present with a solid performance this weekend. The former Chelsea man has been ravaged by injury problems since swapping London for Madrid but he is currently fit and available, and could be given the nod this weekend, with Zidane no doubt keen to try and cultivate a consistent run of games for the wily winger. Since returning from his latest setback, the Belgian has mustered 13 minutes and 16 minutes off the bench against Elche and Celta Vigo respectively, but will now be pushing for a start.
