Real Madrid

Real Madrid will look to continue their 100% start to the La Liga season when they face Osasuna on Sunday. 

Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been in imperious form this season, winning all six of the games they have played in the Spanish La Liga this season, to sit top of the La Liga standings. However, with Barcelona closely behind them in second place with just two points separating them, Los Blancos know they cannot afford any slip-up if they are to sustain their title defence. 

Real Madrid entered into the International break with an impressive 2-1 win over local rivals Atletico Madrid in the Madrid Derby, with goals from Federico Valverde who has been in fine form this season and Rodrygo who has deputized well in the absence of Karim Benzema.

Los Blancos have been dominant in this fixture and are yet to taste defeat in the hands of the visitors in their last five encounters. However, Jagoba Arrasate’s side did record one draw against the Spanish Champions in the first leg of this same fixture last season. 

With the ease with which his boys dispatched Atletico Madrid in the Derby, Carlo Ancelotti will be fairly confident of his team’s chances against Osasuna but must dig deep to secure all three points and avoid any slip-up as they gear up for a congested calendar in October. 

Possible Real Madrid starting line-up

Thibaut Courtois; Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy; Toni Kroos, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni; Eden Hazard, Vinicius Junior, Federico Valverde.

Injured: Lucas Vazquez, Luka Modric

Doubtful: Karim Benzema

Suspended: None


Los Rojillos are on course to improve their tenth place last season and after six rounds of football, Jagoba Arrasate team are in fifth place. 

Osasuna entered into the International break with a 0-2 win over Real Valladolid in round six of La Liga football. Goals from Jon Moncayola and Enrique Kike ensured that the Los Rojillos entered the break with momentum on their side.

Osasuna will now look to make it two wins in a row when they travel to the Capital city to take on Carlo Ancelotti’s side, but they must produce a great performance and hope to get a good result against the champions. 

Possible Osasuna starting line-up

Sergio Herrera; Nacho Vidal, David Garcia, Unai Garcia, Juan Cruz; Darko Brasanac, Lucas Torro; Ruben Pena, Ruben Garcia, Moi Gomez; Ante Budimir. 

Injured: Kiko Saverio

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: Ezequiel Avila
