Real Madrid host Osasuna this Saturday and will have yet another chance to compete for the 2020-2021 La Liga title until the very last week of the season. Unfortunately for them, coach Zinedine Zidane will be forced to think about keeping his veterans and starters fresh for Wednesday’s clash against Chelsea in Stamford Bridge, which is followed by another tough and decisive match against Sevilla.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Odriozola, Varane, Militao, Marcelo, Casemiro, Blanco, Isco, Asensio, Hazard, Benzema.

Osasuna predicted XI: Herrera, Vidal, Hernandez, Garcia, Sanchez, Moncayola, Brasanac, Torro, Barja, Garcia, Budimir.

Osasuna have been a mediocre team this season and will fight to avoid relegation until the end. At the same time, that means that they will be desperate for a good result, so they will play as hard as they can. Real Madrid have the tools to win the game even if they rotate the squad, but they will have to play with composure.
