Real Madrid returns to La Liga action on Saturday afternoon as they host Osasuna in the Spanish capital, rekindling memories of the 2023 Copa del Rey final. Carlo Ancelotti’s Blancos are targeting their fourth straight win.
Osasuna made an unexpected appearance in the final of Spain’s premier cup competition last season, but a brace from Rodrygo secured the trophy for Madrid.
Since then, Los Blancos have kicked off the 2023/24 campaign in impressive form and are aiming for their eighth win out of nine in La Liga this weekend. Additionally, they have a perfect record in the Champions League, having triumphed in a closely contested match against Napoli on Tuesday.

Teams news & squads
Real: David Alaba will undergo a late fitness test, adding to the defensive concerns for Real Madrid. With Eder Militao out with a long-term injury and Nacho serving a suspension, options at the back are limited. Additionally, Arda Guler and Thibaut Courtois are also sidelined with injuries. Carlo Ancelotti might consider moving Eduardo Camavinga into the midfield and giving Ferland Mendy some playing time at left-back.
Predicted Real Madrid lineup: Kepa; Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Mendy; Valverde, Tchouameni, Camavinga; Bellingham; Vinicius, Rodrygo.
Osasuna: Moi Gomez and Unai Garcia will be unavailable for the upcoming match, while Johan Mojica is facing significant uncertainty due to injury.

Predicted Osasuna lineup: Herrera; Pena, Catena, D Garcia, Cruz; Moncayola, Munoz, Oroz; Ruben Garcia, Budimir, Arnaiz.
