With barely no time to savour the deserved El Clásico triumph, Real Madrid are back in action as our team tonight welcome Osasuna for the sides' LaLiga Matchday 11 meeting in what is the team's 10th outing this league campaign. This match will see LaLiga action return to the Santiago Bernabéu a month on from the team's last home league game.
After David Alaba opened his account for the club and Lucas Vázquez notched his first goal of the season, a total of 11 Real Madrid players have now been on target so far this term. The Whites are riding an 11-game winning streak in home encounters with Osasuna and the team will have to reproduce their form in front of goal if they're to extend this run.

"I've got a group of players with a very high level of collective commitment", commented Carlo Ancelotti in his pre-match press conference. The coach will have to do without Fede Valverde, whilst Casemiro and Militão, who struck in the Navarrans' last visit, are available, as is Luka Jović, who returns to the fray and has himself previously been amongst the goals against Los Rojillos.
Fine start to season
Osasuna have enjoyed a tremendous start to the season and have emerged victorious in five of their 10 games and currently lie in the European spots (sixth place) ahead of this round of games. Jagoba Arrasate's troops head to the Bernabéu on a four-match unbeaten run. The Pamplona-based outfit's goals have come from a variety of sources, with David García, Chimy Ávila, Kike García and Roberto Torres on two goals apiece.
