Real Madrid Vs Osasuna LaLiga Live Football Score 3-10-2022
Real Madrid is going head to head with Osasuna starting on 2 Oct 2022 at 19:00 UTC at Santiago Bernabeu stadium, Madrid city, Spain. The match is a part of the LaLiga. Reigning Spanish and European champions Real Madrid host Osasuna in La Liga on Sunday night. Real Madrid’s start to the season has been, quite literally, perfect. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have won each of the nine matches they have contested across all competitions this term. Osasuna haven’t matched their faultless hosts but have recorded four wins from their first six games of the campaign for just the third time in their top-flight history. Karim Benzema missed Madrid’s last three matches before the international break which he also sat out. The Ballon d’Or nominee is expected to have fully recovered from an injury to two muscle groups. Luka Modric, however, sustained a hip problem while playing for Croatia which could rule him out for up to ten days. Eden Hazard limped off for Belgium but the dead leg he received isn’t deemed to be serious. Lucas Vazquez was scheduled to return from a groin problem which sidelined him for the Madrid derby following the conclusion of the international break.
Jagoba Arrasate will travel to the Santiago Bernabeu without his team’s top scorer Chimy Avila after the fiery forward collected a straight red card in the defeat to Getafe a fortnight ago. Pamplona-born Aimar Oroz has missed the club’s last two matches with an ankle injury while the young Ecuadorian forward Kike Saverio is still in the midst of his recovery from an Achilles tendon rupture. Real Madrid was in danger of suffering its second loss in four matches and fourth overall this season on Sunday as it trailed Sevilla by two goals at halftime. But Los Blancos showed why they own a comfortable lead atop the La Liga standings, scoring three times in the second half for a 3-2 victory. Real Madrid (23-6-3) aims for its fourth consecutive triumph when it visits Osasuna (12-8-12) on Wednesday. Los Blancos, who are 15 points ahead of three teams with only six matches remaining, settled for a 0-0 draw against Osasuna on Oct. 27 at home.
Karim Benzema recorded the decisive goal in the victory against Sevilla, giving him a league-leading 25 goals in 28 matches this season. The 34-year-old French forward has scored in nine of his last 10 contests across all competitions, netting 15 goals in that span. Benzema, who also is tied for first in La Liga with 11 assists, hasn’t gone back-to-back league matches without a goal since Oct. 24 and 27, registering 16 in 18 games since then. Third on the club’s all-time list with 217 league goals, Benzema is not the only offensive threat for Real Madrid, which is seeking its second La Liga title in three seasons. After recording eight tallies in 82 matches over his first three campaigns with the side, Vinicius Jr. has netted 14 over 30 contests in 2021-22. The 21-year-old Brazilian is tied for fourth in the league in goals and shares seventh place with seven assists. The Reds have improved offensively of late, recording seven goals over their last four matches after netting a total of one in their previous four. The main reason for the increase has been the play of Ante Budimir. The 30-year-old Croatian forward shares the team lead with six goals and has scored in each of his last four league matches.
Budimir is even in tallies with Ezequiel Avila, who has netted six in 30 games. The 28-year-old Argentinian is four goals away from matching the career high he set in his first La Liga season in 2018-19 with Huesca. Like Budimir, Avila also scored in Osasuna’s 2-1 victory against Valencia on Saturday, giving him a goal in three of his last four league matches. Real Madrid have a lead at the top of the La Liga table, thanks to their perfect start to the campaign which has seen them win all of their games till now. At the same time though, the lead is not a significant one, as Barcelona have pretty much managed to keep up pace. Thus, just one slip from Carlo Ancelotti’s side could allow their rivals to reach first. Thus, Real Madrid would be keen to stick to their winning ways when they welcome Osasuna to Santiago Bernabeu this weekend, straight out of the international break. Now heading into the tie, there is both good news and bad news for Real Madrid, in terms of availability of players.
As tweeted out by Carlos Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez is ruled out for the game against Osasuna while Luka Modric will also be absent. On the other hand though, Karim Benzema has recovered and is ready to go.The game against Osasuna might not be as simple as it looks on paper, as the visitors have been the surprise package of La Liga this season till now. Osasuna currently sit at fifth in the La Liga table, having picked up 12 points from their first 6 league games of the season. Thus, while Real Madrid are definitely the heavy favourites going into the game, especially since it is being played at Santiago Bernabeu, the result of the match is not a foregone conclusion as some fans might believe. The return of Benzema is going to be a big boost for sure but then they are set to miss out on Modric, who picked up an injury during the international break. Vazquez has been out of action for a while and is yet to.
