Osasuna vs. Real Madrid Tips, Preview and Predictions

Osasuna vs. Real Madrid, La Liga

Real Madrid aim to take another step towards the league title on Wednesday when they travel to Pamplona to take on an impressive Osasuna side. Los Blancos already have a 15-point lead at the top of the table but will not want to give anyone else any hope of catching them up.

Last time: Real Madrid hold the advantage in this fixture but were unable to take all three points at the Bernabéu earlier in the season as the two teams played out a goalless draw.

Osasuna vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview

Real Madrid survived a scare on Sunday after trailing to two first half goals away to title challengers Sevilla. Los Blancos fired back into the game in the second period and had Karim Benzema to thank once again as the French striker scored the winner in stoppage time.

That victory maintained Real’s healthy lead at the top of the table and there does now seem to be an unassailable lead for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Osasuna have been in some good form of their own though and could even allow Valencia to score a late consolation goal in their fixture at the weekend and still take the points. That win pushed Los Rojillos back into the top half of the table and, although European qualification is beyond them, the season will definitely go down as a success. This should be an interesting game on Wednesday.

Osasuna vs. Real Madrid full time result odds

Real Madrid will have one eye on the Champions League semi final first leg away at Manchester City coming up next week but have shown that they can multi-task with the league as well this season. Only the humiliating home defeat to Barcelona has interrupted their stride recently and another three points will be expected here. Osasuna are no pushover, of course, but the odds of 7/10 for a Real Madrid win look the best option.

Osasuna vs. Real Madrid both teams to score odds

Jagoba Arrasate’s side have scored in all of their most recent games but have one of the lowest goal tallies in the top half of the table, so there might not be too much confidence in the home side finding the net here. Real Madrid have more than enough firepower available to score goals of their own but a bet against both teams to score is priced at 10/11 and looks the better value.

Osasuna vs. Real Madrid correct score odds

Real Madrid have scored at least two goals in each of their last five games – including the two against Chelsea in the Champions League – and look set to keep up that record away to Osasuna this week. It is not as clear whether the home side will be able to find the net though, so a 2-0 away win priced at 8/1 looks like a good idea.

Osasuna vs. Real Madrid first goalscorer odds

Croatian striker Ante Budimir has now scored in four consecutive games for Osasuna, so will be in the mood to dent Real Madrid’s title run-in here. But it is the away side that is more likely to open the scoring and you can’t really look past Karim Benzema these days. He may not have scored first against Sevilla but his winner showed just how important he is to this team. He’s priced at 11/5 to open the scoring on Wednesday.
