Real Madrid

Real Madrid defeats Barcelona 2-1 in the El Clasico on Sunday to maintain their place close to the top of the La Liga table.

Carlo Ancelloti’s side are sitting in second place, one point behind Real Sociedad having played a game less. They will now look to get the top spot by taking all three points in this encounter with Osasuna.

Los Blancos have a good home record having not lost in La Liga in 13 games. 

If they win this game, they will better the tally they held after ten league games in their most recent title-winning campaign (2019/20) by four points. 

They look well placed to win though, given their record against the visitors who have lost their last 12 games at the Bernabeu.

Meanwhile, Welsh winger Gareth Bale, Dani Ceballos, Isco, Luka Jovic, and Uruguayan midfielder Federico Valverde are all unavailable for selection through injuries.

Possible Real Madrid starting line-ups

Thibaut Courtois, Lucas Vazquez, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy, Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga, Toni Kroos, Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard.


Osasuna snatched a 1-1 with Granada last time out to ensure that they remain in the hunt for a place in Europe at the end of the season.   

The visitors are sitting in sixth place, having won five out of their ten opening La Liga games (D3, L2).

Their aim for this game will be to pick up at least a point to push themselves into the top four places.

The possibility of doing so is high, judging by their league form as they enter this tie with three wins from their last four games (D1).

Meanwhile, Jagoba Arrasate will be without the injured trio of Ante Budimir, Jonas Ramalho and Ariadne Hernández, while left-back Jose Angel is suspended.

Possible Osasuna starting line-ups

Sergio Herrera, Nacho Vidal, Unai Garcia, David Garcia, Juan Cruz, Lucas Torro, Roberto Torres, Jon Moncayola, Darko Brasanac, Javi Martinez, Chimy Avila.


Both Real Madrid and Osasuna are entering this with something to play for.

Real Madrid wants to regain the top spot while Osasuna will want to get into the Champions League places. Such high stakes set up this match to be entertaining and difficult to predict.
