Team News: Osasuna
Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for the Osasuna manager Jagoba Arrasate to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Chimy Ávila (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Real Madrid
From a largely available squad, there’s just the one fitness worry for the Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane to contend with. Rodrygo (Hamstring Injury) misses out for this game. Daniel Carvajal will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’re inclined to think that Osasuna will manage to breach the defence of this Real Madrid team, although one goal might not be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see a very close game with a 1-2 winning score for Real Madrid after the 90. We’ll have to see what happens.
