After the victory in the Sánchez-Pizjuán, Real Madrid will seek to get three points from Osasuna in the sixth round of Laliga in order to continue leading the league standing.
The match Vs Osasuna is a good chance for Zidane’s team to regain more confidence, especially after the brilliant victory in the Pizjuán and It is also a good chance for Zidane to rest the players who played against Paris and Sevilla respectively before facing Atletico Madrid on Saturday.
The numbers confirm that it is a good opportunity for the team, as Real Madrid haven’t lost against Osasuna since January 2011 when Real Madrid lost in the Sadar Stadium 1-0.
It is good to mention that today’s game will be at the Santiago Bernabeu, the stadium where Real Madrid beat Osasuna in the last nine games in La Liga between the two teams, in a chain of wins that began in 2007 when the team beat Osasuna 2-0. Real Madrid’s attack did not fail to score against Osasuna Since 12/1/2013, when the team drew 0-0 with Osasuna and the game was at the Sadar and not at the Bernabéu.
It is true that Osasuna are unbeaten in their last five LaLiga games (4 draws and 1 victory) and that Real Madrid have scored 10 goals in their opening five LaLiga games this season, their second lowest goals tally at this stage in the last 7 LaLiga campaigns (9 in 2017/18) and it’s also true that Real Madrid have failed to keep clean sheet in their last 4 LaLiga home games.
But few negative numbers do not stand in the way of Real Madrid’s victory tonight and do not stand in the way of many positive numbers that are in favor of Real Madrid against Osasuna.
It’s necessary to get the three points tonight and it’s supposed to be an easy objective for Zidane’s team…
Hala Madrid !
