Match Report Real Madrid 2 – Osasuna 0: The Plan B Works to Top the Table before the Derby


Real Madrid reached the goal against Osasuna and beat the newly promoted team (2-0) obtaining the third victory in a row in La Liga. With these three points, Los Blancos are topping the table alone, only one point ahead of Atlético Madrid, their next rivals in the important derby in the weekend.

Zinedine Zidane chose the formula that gave him good results three years ago, when he won La Liga and the Champions League. Therefore, many of the important players had a rest and others had their opportunity. And many of them did a good job, especially Militao, Areola or Vinicius Junior. Besides, some others like James Rodríguez, Benzema or Bale will be fresh for the derby.

Los Blancos controlled the game from the beginning against Osasuna, who haven’t lost a game yet in La Liga and were able to get a point against Barcelona. However, the newly promoted team couldn’t create many troubles and when they arrive to the goal, Areola showed a great level. Actually it was one of the great news of the day.

The other one was Vinicius Junior. We all know he is a special player, but he has many troubles finding the net. The Real Madrid supporters were already a bit nervous with him when his shot from outside the box touched in a defender and touched the net. It was the first goal of the pleasant evening.

However, the game wasn’t closed and Real Madrid had already bad experiences with this feeling. Luka Jovic also started the game but he was not as lucky as his Brazilian team mates and he missed a couples of good chances. Besides, when he scored, VAR noticed that he was in offside. Better luck had Rodrygo Goes, who came in to the pitch in the second half, and scored a beautiful goal in the first time he touched the ball. Perhaps Rodrygo is a special player, and at least he has started in the best way possible.

Finally, the supporters could enjoy a pleasant evening and the third victory in a row for their team in La Liga. Now Wanda Metropolitano will tell us if Los Blancos are ready for important things this season or it’s only a strike against weak teams. At least, they will face the game from the top of the table, four points ahead of FC Barcelona.
