Osasuna vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Osasuna are in mid-table comfort with 28 points from 22 league games and their defeat at Villarreal last time out was their first league loss in four.
17 of Osasuna’s points have come at their El Sadar stronghold and it is a potential banana-skin for any opponent.
Real Madrid are in ominous form as they are unbeaten in 21 across all competitions – winning 17 in that time – with just one defeat in their last 27, at Real Mallorca.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are now three points clear at the top of La Liga following Barcelona’s recent loss at Valencia while Los Blancos beat Atletico de Madrid in last week’s Madrid derby.
The visitors are unsurprisingly favourites for this encounter at odds of 52/100 with an Osasuna victory priced at 5/1 and the draw available at 17/5.
Madrid have 13 clean sheets in 21 and 16 in total all season, so under 1.5 goals at 16/5 on bet victor appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 6/5.
A ‘double chance’ on Osasuna to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 8/5 while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 1/9.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 11/8.
One to watch for Osasuna: With Chimy Avila out for the season through injury, the home side’s main goal threat is now Ruben Garcia – who has six league goals to his name this campaign and is at 19/4 to add to that tally here.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema netted a highly credible 30 goals last campaign for Madrid and already has 17 from 28 in all competitions this time out. Is priced at 23/25 with 888 Sport to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Madrid have kept 13 clean sheets in 21, while Osasuna have kept two clean sheets in their last three games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 12/1 with William Hill.
