Osasuna v Real Madrid meet on Saturday evening (19:45, UK time) at Reyno de Navarra Stadium. Los Blancos need to win to continue at the top of the table before the clash in Champions League against Napoli.
Osasuna v Real Madrid Preview
Two weeks after the last game, Real Madrid go down to the pitch in Pamplona to face Osasuna, the bottom of the table in La Liga. Los Blancos saw how their last fixture against Celta was postponed due to the weather conditions and now they have two games less than Barcelona. It will be actually three at the moment of the kick off at Reyno de Navarra because Los Blaugranas played in the early afternoon.
Therefore, Zidane’s side need to win to continue at the top of the tablet in a very difficult stadium historically for Los Blancos. Toni Kroos is suspended and Gareth Bale is still injured but the manager has all the other players available for the game. It will be a good test before the Wednesday clash against Napoli in the Champions League.
Osasuna are bottom of the table and they have still to win a game in their stadium. Their performances have improved with the new coach, Vasiljevic, but the points are flying away and the relegation is a probable end. Flaño, Digard, Nauzet and Roberto Torres (suspended) are not available for the game.

Osasuna v Real Madrid Prediction
We can only expect a Real Madrid victory in this game. When the top of the table visits the bottom they are supposed to win. However, Pamplona is a tricky visit for Los Blancos, who have lost recently many points at this stadium. With all the players rested and almost the full squad available, we are going to back Real Madrid to win and more than 2,5 goals.
In the game at Bernabéu, Los Blancos thrashed (5-2) Osasuna with the goals of Cristiano Ronaldo, Danilo, Pepe, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric. In the last visit to Reyno de Navarra, Los Blancos only drew (2-2), playing with 10 footballers because Sergio Ramos was sent off. In that season, Osasuna were relegated to Segunda División.
