Madrid sports newspapers emphasize today the fact that Real Madrid face a difficult match in their visit to Osasuna.
“Be careful,” Marca titles, pointing out both Real Madrid and Barcelona “seek to avoid a blunder in their tricky games.”
“Real Madrid put their faith in Cristiano Ronaldo to succeed at El Sadar,” Marca states. Barcelona have already dropped points at that stadium this season, and today they also face a difficult test with Villarreal’s visit to the Camp Nou.
The other main Madrid sports daily, As, titles in its front page “A bull in a foreign rodeo,” in a reference to Ronaldo’s great state of form being tested in Pamplona.
“If he scores today, he’ll beat Di Stefano’s 71 goals outside the Santiago Bernabeu and Hugo Sanchez’s 164 goals in La Liga,” As highlights.
In other news, As brings to its front page Carlo Ancelotti’s latest words about Xabi Alonso’s contract renewal. “I spoke to him to tell him we all want him to stay, now he has to decide,” the Italian told the press.
