Real Madrid is welcoming Osasuna to Santiago Bernabeu in round 1 of the Spanish LaLiga. By beating Barcelona, Real has extended their winning streak to 2 games, and they will be filled with confidence in this game. Osasuna is doing a fantastic job, they have lost only 2 games, but their offense and defense are slipping.
With 20 points, 2 scored goals, and only 11 conceded goals so far, Real Madrid is in 2nd place, and they look really dangerous at the moment. During this 2-game winning streak, Real Marid has scored 7 goals, while conceding only 1 goal, and as I’ve mentioned, their confidence is now shy-high. In that game against Barcelona, Real Madrid has had 48% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 84% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in each half, Real Madrid has deservedly won this game 1-2. There isn’t a player in Real Madrid who isn’t in good form right now, but Benzema has been outstanding with 9 goals and 7 assists. Vinicius has added 5 goals. Ceballos, Bale, and Valverde are all injured. The rest of the schedule before the international break is a bit easier for Real Madrid, and this is the perfect chance for them to extend their winning streak.
Osasuna has been in great form, they are undefeated in their last 5 games, but they haven’t been scoring efficiently as they can. Osasuna has scored a solid 14 goals, but they have conceded 13, and that is something they need to improve. With 18 points, Osasuna is now in 6th place. Torres, Garcia, Avila, and David Garcia are the leading goalscorers for Osasuna with 2 goals each. In their latest game against Granada, Osasuna has had 42% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 70% of the correct passes. Osasuna was leading until the 90th minute, but unfortunately for them, they have conceded a goal, and the final result was 1-1. The next few games will be hard for Osasuna, and if they can get through them with a few positive results, Osasuna might just stay in the battle for the Europa League for a little longer.
Osasuna has won all 4 games on the road this season, but they were playing some of the weakest teams in the league. Both teams are in great form, but Real Madrid is the better team here, they are playing more consistently, and they haven’t lost to Osasuna in their last 14 games.
