Real Madrid vs Osasuna Preview
We are heading to the Santiago Bernabeu in the Spanish capital where Real Madrid hosts Osasuna in a game from the 9th round of La Liga. Stay with us and our free soccer tips for today. Let’s get to work!
Real Madrid are leading the league standings with 21 points won - this puts them one point ahead of Barcelona. Carlo Ancelotti’s team won four of its last five matches in La Liga. Some people might say that Madrid are not showing their best qualities at the moment, but they are still winning and that’s the most important thing.
Jude Bellingham is the player to watch right now. The English star leads the goal scoring chart in La Liga and he also made a terrific performance against Napoli in the Champions League during the week - one goal and one assist. Bellingham is arguably the signing of the season in the European top league. Playing very close to the strikers, he’s absolutely deadly at the moment.
Luka Modric could return in the starting eleven against Osasuna. Carlo Ancelotti is giving the Croatian midfielder less time on the pitch this season, but this is only normal due to his age. Now Modric could start against the Pamplonians and remind everyone of his quality.
Vinicius Jr. is back and that’s the best news for Madrid. The Brazilian winger even scored one of the goals for the win against Napoli. Vini missed some of the matches so far but now he will remind everyone why he’s so important for Los Blancos. Vinicius’ attacking talents are making him a huge threat and a crucial player upfront.
Nacho is one of Real Madrid’s players who are missing the game against Osasuna. The experienced center-back was sent off during the win against Girona last weekend. This gives Ancelotti less options in the defense especially given the fact that Eder Militao and David Alaba are injured as well.
Osasuna are in the middle of the table with 10 points won since the beginning of the season. They had some run of games without a win, but this changed last weekend when they beat Deportivo Alaves away from home - 2-0. Jose Arnaiz opened the score while Ante Budimir doubled the lead in the last minutes of the game.
Osasuna’s defense will have a tough task at the Santiago Bernabeu especially given the fact how often Real Madrid score lately. This means that players like Catena and David Garcia will have to do well in the heart of the defense while Ruben Pena and Juan Cruz must watch for danger at the wings. Iker Munoz, Moncayola and Aimar Oroz have to be at the top of their game in midfield.

Of course, there’s nothing easy in the Spanish league but surely Carlo Ancelotti’s team is the favorite here. Let’s see how they are going to do.
