La Liga football is back after the FIFA break and two big stars like Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have finally recovered from their injuries and will be with the team, as Zidane confirmed during the pre-match press conference.
However, James Rodriguez, Marcelo and Casemiro will miss the game as they try to rest after playing in South America this week. It will be very important for Madrid to have them ready for the busy schedule ahead. Isco, Keylor Navas and Coentrao will miss the game with injuries.
Real Madrid Projected XI: Casilla, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Nacho, Kroos, Modric, Kovacic, Bale, Ronaldo, Morata.
Osasuna Projected XI: Nauzet, Garcia, Flaño, Garcia, Oier, Cuevas, Fausto, Merida, Clerc, Leon, Riera.
This is certainly a manageable game for Real Madrid against an Osasuna side that just promoted to La Liga Santander. Los Blancos have the better team and Zidane will have the opportunity to make some rotations.
