Zinedine Zidane was left impressed by Real Madrid's 1-0 win over Sevilla over the weekend. Los Blancos have maintained their unbeaten run in the season with three wins and two draws. They will be hosting the newly-promoted side Osasuna, who are all unbeaten with four draws and a win. The Los Rojillos managed to hold Barcelona for a draw in their early clash this season and can trouble Madrid in Bernabeu.
Madrid are unbeaten in their last eight meetings against Osasuna in LaLiga (Win 6, Draw 2). The Los Blancos' last defeat against them came on January 11, 2011, in Pamplona. At Bernabeu, Madrid have an intact record against Osasuna with a win in their last nine games with a 3.4 goal average per game.
Madrid have been struggling in their defensive zone since the start of the LaLiga 19-20 season. They have kept just one clean sheet in their first six league games. The Zidane-led side has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four home games, their longest streak since April 2005, which was also under the Frenchman. On the other hand, Jagoba Arrasate's side is also unbeaten this season with a draw in their last four LaLiga games (W1, D4).
Zidane’s men have found the net 10 times this season, their second-lowest goal tally in five matches since their 2017-18 season. Karim Benzema has netted nine of Madrid's last 13 home goals in LaLiga. Osasuna's Roberto Torres is involved in three of their last four goals this season (one assist, two goals).
Madrid have won 15 of the last 21 LaLiga clash between both the sides, with Osasuna's only win being a 1-0 win in 2011. The favourites beat Osasuna 7-1 at home and 5-1 away the following season, but their opponents will have fond memories of a famous victory at the end of the 2008-09 season.
