Real Madrid vs. Osasuna LIVE: they face each other this Saturday, February 18 at the El Sadar Stadium, in Pamplona – Navarra (Spain). The match corresponds to the 22nd date of LaLiga and will be played from 3:00 p.m. (Peruvian time). The broadcast can be followed by DirecTV Sports (D Sports) in South America.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team was a roller and thrashed (4-0) the colista to continue carrying the backpack of confidence at a key moment of the season. Those three points, in a match postponed by the Club World Cup that Real Madrid won, served to not give up more advantage with Barcelona, solid leader of the domestic competition.
The distance with the Blaugrana, who play this Sunday against Cádiz, is now eight points, so winning at El Sadar would allow the madridistas to put pressure on those of Xavi Hernández and continue with their plan to reach close to the Classic in mid-March at the Camp Nou. Real Madrid clings to its history and its DNA to neutralize an advantage that Barza has never wasted against the whites.

For the match in Pamplona, Carlo Ancelotti will not have Karim Benzema, already second top scorer (230) historical of the team in League, who will rest, nor Toni Kroos, absent for being all week with gastroenteritis. The good news for the Italian is the return of Vinícius Jr., sanctioned against Elche, and Thibaut Courtois, who will return to goal this Saturday.
Thus, Carvajal, Militao, Rüdiger and Alaba would form in defense, with Tchouaméni, Camavinga and Modric in the middle. Rodrygo, outstanding against the Elche, would be chosen to replace the fatigued Benzema, while it remains to be seen if Ancelotti rests Valverde, with the option of Asensio on the right.

Osasuna team news
Barcelona loanee Abde Ezzalzouli is back from suspension and should start his own mini-Clasico here, but Ezequiel Avila and Juan Cruz have earned bans of their own which will keep them out of action.
Aimar Oroz, Ruben Pena and Nacho Vidal are all injured.
Osasuna predicted lineup vs Real Madrid
(4-3-3): Fernandez; Moncayola, Aridane, U Garcia, Sanchez; Ibanez, Torro, M Gomez; Ezzalzouli, Budimir, K Garcia.
Real Madrid team news
Like Abde, Vinicius Junior will also return from suspension, and there’ll be a massive boost in goal after Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Thibaut Courtois will make his return here.
Toni Kroos has been battling a stomach bug which could keep him out of the squad alongside the injured Ferland Mendy and Eden Hazard.

Osasuna vs Real Madrid score prediction
Few teams have been able to neutralise Real Madrid with the same efficiency as Osasuna in recent years. Three draws from their last five meetings, all of which have been since the start of 2021, prove as much.
Osasuna games tend to be low-scoring affairs so expect the hosts to make this really awkward for Real, who simply must win here to keep any semblance of pressure on Barcelona.
Fortunately, with most of their heavy hitters available once again, Real should have enough to get the win.
Prediction: Osasuna 0-1 Real Madrid
