The reigning Spanish champions have looked formidable over the early weeks of the season in La Liga. Real Madrid will be looking to maintain that dominant start this weekend, as they search for a seventh straight victory in the league against Osasuna.
La Liga Preview
Real Madrid is looking every inch like champions at this early stage of the La Liga season this term. They have dominated the opposition over the early weeks of the season, winning all six fixtures that they have played. However, they will likely need to maintain that form, as Barcelona sit just two points behind their rivals coming into the seventh matchday.
Real hasn’t even been close to losing at this stage of the season, as they have scored 17 goals and have conceded just six times. Their sixth straight win of the season was picked up in dramatic fashion before the international break, as they edged out city rivals Atletico to record a 2-1 victory. Both Real goals in that victory were scored in the first half, with Rodrygo opening the scoring, before Federico Valverde doubled the advantage.
Osasuna should put up a good test for the Spanish champions this weekend, as they come into this fixture currently sitting fifth in the overall standings. They have won four of the six matches that they have played, but they will need to avenge defeat in their most recent fixture this weekend.
Their defeat before the international break came against Getafe, with the away side recording a 2-0 victory. It was an ill-tempered match between the sides, with Ezequiel Avila being sent off for Osasuna with just two minutes of the first half remaining.
Real Madrid vs Osasuna Head to Head
Real Madrid has a staggering record in this fixture, as they are unbeaten in 14 La Liga meetings against Osasuna. The last win for the visitors was recorded in January 2011. Madrid was commanding 3-1 winners in the latest match between the sides. However, this exact fixture last season ended in a 0-0 draw.
Real Madrid vs Osasuna Prediction
Given the Real dominance in the overall record between these sides, it looks impossible to bet against the Spanish champions this weekend. However, we could see Osasuna asking questions of Real, which means that the preference is for Real to win by just a single goal.
