Real Madrid faced off against Osasuna at the El Sadar Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to pick up maximum points on the road. Los Blancos made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 12th minute courtesy of David Alaba’s goal. However, the home team responded immediately via Ante Budimir’s effort. Marco Asensio gave the Madrid giants the lead once again just before the half-time break.

Lucas Vazquez ended up securing the points for Los Blancos in injury-time as the contest finished 3-1 in favour of Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

Let’s take a look at how each Real Madrid player performed during the game against Osasuna.

RB: Lucas Vazquez – 8/10
