RM vs OSN Dream11 : Newly promoted Osasuna face ther trickiest test till now as they travel away to Real Madrid today
Granted a much needed reprieve in their previous outing in La Liga 2019-20, today’s hosts will be well aware that they have plenty of work yet to imbed if they are to fully win the trust of their supporters over. Squirming to a 1-0 win over Sevilla, Real Madrid managed to wipe away some of the flak they had received from their trashing against PSG, a performance they’ll be looking to emanate today as well.
Whilst heir is no disguising the fact that Real Madrid have only regressed ever since last season, the side have still managed to somehow scramble together meaningful performances in the league to sit as high as third place, level on points with Granada and Athletic Bilbao who all have 11 points after the first five gameweeks of the league. Still yet to lose a match, the home side will be looking to extend that unblemished record when they take on newly promoted Osasuna today.
Elsewhere, for Osasuna, adjusting to the increased level of competition and variety of star performers in La Liga has been surprisingly easy. The side have relied on their defensive gameplan to imbed in the sublime framework of success, putting in illustrious and flamboyant displays to earn laurels from the footballing fraternity.
With three cleansheets in 5 matches, the side find themselves occupying 10th place in the points tally, thriving owing to their defence which has safeguarded the side to show they are no pushovers. They’ll head into today’s clash with the similar gameplan, bank on the reliability of their stringent defence to perturb Real Madrid and halt the hosts from scoring in this one.
RM vs OSN Match Prediction
Althouhg Real Madrid are yet to lose in La Liga, there is no hiding the fact that the side are yet to win matches with conviction. The gaping holes and gaps in the side are clearly visible with the outfit finding it extremely tough to score goals, a predicament which has been surprising given the amount they have shelved out on players this season.
With the side set to face Atletcio Madrid at the weekend, expect them to make a flurry of changes for today’s match, a rhetoric Osasuna will be looking to capitalise on. This will be a sticky affair, a match dictated by the two defences with Real Madrid just about managing to win this by the one goal.

RM vs OSN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
A major reason for Osasuna’s incredible rise over the course of the last year has been their defence with goal-keeper, Ruben Martinez being lauded for his displays. He’s been the custodian of his side’s goal, settling into positions from which e can easily read the course of the ball to get down astutely and pull of some stunning saves.
RM vs OSN Dream11 Defenders
Where Osasuna have been astute and articulate in defence, the side have lacked in attack. They have scored just four goals in five matches, letting their backline do much of the talking for the course of the match with the forward moving players being asked to heavily contribute in defence as well.
It’s a position which Real Adriá will welcome as they look to quell notions of their defence falling apart and being the pivotal reason of their defeats, eyeing their second cleansheet on the bounce. It’s a narrative which could easily come true for the home side as well today, seeing us for the first time bring in an entire backline from any side in this season of the league.
We begin with CBs Sergio Ramos and Eder Militao along with getting in both the fullbacks in Dani Carvajal and Alvaro Odriozola for this encounter. Doing justice to the visitors’ incredible acumen in defence, we are bringing in rightback, Nacho Vidal from the side for this encounter as well.
RM vs OSN Dream11 Midfielders
A majority of the game will be contested by the players in this facet as either side looks to wrench control of the ball in what promises to be a scrappy affair. We have gotten in an entire trivalent from Real Madrid, beginning with Federico Valverde along with the more attacking partnership of Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale who’ll be crucial to the side’s ambitions of getting three points today.
The lone pick from Osasuna sees us go for their top scorer with the two goals, Roberto Torres for this match.
RM vs OSN Dream11 Strikers
Just the one pick for us over here, making the visiting side’s Ezequiel Avila our only pick with Real Madrid set to shuffle between their two strikers for this match. Avila will try to scour his way past the hosts’ defence and be an integral part of the side’s attacking sorties.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Odriozola has been selected as our side’s captain for this encounter while we are making Carvajal our vice-captain.
