Marcelo, Pepe, James, Carvajal and Modric are all back with Real Madrid after missing some games with injuries, but coach Zinedine Zidane might decide to keep them out of the starting lineup today as Madrid will play a very important Champions League match against Napoli next Wednesday, when they'll need to complete a very good performance and keep a clean sheet if they want an easier game when they travel to San Paolo for the return leg.

Osasuna Predicted: XI: Sirigu, Berenguer, Tano, Oier, Vujadinovic, Clerc, Fausto, De las Cuevas, Causic, Riera, Sergio Leon.

Real Madrid Predicted XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kovacic, Vazquez, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Prediction: 0-2 (Ronaldo, Benzema)

Osasuna are currently in the bottom of the table with just 10 points after 21 matches played. They are a weak team with plenty of flaws, but Madrid still have to play with determination and focus as El Sadar has never been an easy venue for Los Blancos.
