Real Madrid host Osasuna right ahead of what will be an extremely tough week for Los Blancos, with the crucial return leg against Chelsea in the Champions League Semifinals and a decisive home match against Sevilla next weekend.
That means that coach Zinedine Zidane will likely make some rotations tonight in order to give his veterans some rest. Antonio Blanco and Isco are expected to start, with Kroos and Modric likely staying on the bench.
Osasuna have been very mediocre this season and are fighting to avoid relegation, so Real Madrid will need to play with intensity if they want to earn the three points, because Osasuna will.
Eden Hazard is reportedly set to make the starting lineup tonight and if he plays well and shows confidence, he could also start against Chelsea next Wednesday. He’s definitely fresh after spending the last few months out with an injury, so if he can stay healthy he will be an asset.
