class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With the hosts focused on their upcoming Champions League semi-final and the visitors having little at stake, our tipster is backing a low-scorer
Real Madrid welcome Osasuna to the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on Saturday with Zinedine Zidane’s men aiming to keep the pressure on Atletico Madrid and Barcelona at the top of La Liga.
Los Blancos start the weekend two points off the pace and a win here is vital, but they will also have one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid vs Osasuna Latest Odds
The hosts are unbeaten in their last 17 matches in all competitions and bet365 offer a home win at 4/11 (1.44).
Osasuna have been in strong form of late despite their 2-1 loss at Celta last weekend which ended a run of three consecutive victories, and they can be backed at 15/2 (8.50) to bounce back with another win.
The last meeting between these sides ended goalless back in January and another stalemate is priced at 4/1 (5.00).
Real Madrid vs Osasuna Team News
Sergio Ramos, Ferland Mendy and Lucas Vazquez all missed Tuesday’s Champions League game through injury and are unlikely to be risked in this one, whilst Fede Valverde is out with coronavirus and Dani Carvajal is ruled out.
Osasuna have no major injury concerns heading into the game.
Real Madrid vs Osasuna Preview
Osasuna head to the Spanish capital free of any pressure, having all but mathematically secured their top-flight status with a run of three wins and three draws that was only ended last weekend.
That also means the visitors will lack any real motivation, although they will get fewer better chances to beat Real Madrid than this weekend with Los Blancos in the middle of the Champions League semi-final and likely to rest players.
That said, Zidane’s side cannot totally ignore La Liga as they are still involved in the title race, and they will surely be hoping to grind out a win without too much exertion.
A low-scoring clash looks especially likely, given that Osasuna are one of the least prolific sides on the road in La Liga with only Valladolid scoring fewer than Los Rojillos 13 goals away from home.
Real Madrid vs Osasuna Tips and Predictions
Under 2.5 goals is available and a healthy looking 11/10 (2.10), a selection which has paid out in seven of Osasuna’s last nine away games.
