Real Madrid welcomed Osasuna at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to earn a good result in front of the home fans. Los Blancos made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 42nd minute when Vinicius Junior scored after attempting to play a low cross. The Madrid giants were leading 1-0 at half-time.
Unai Garcia equalised for the visitors just five minutes into the second half with a solid header. David Garcia was sent off in the 78th minute which put Los Blancos at a numerical advantage. However, Carlo Ancelotti’s men struggled to finish off their chances and were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw at home.
Let’s take a look at how each Real Madrid player performed during the match against Osasuna.

The Spaniard was solid at the back and made one good chance in the final third.

Rudiger made a couple of crucial clearances but failed to deal with Unai Garcia’s threat in the lead-up to Osasuna’s equaliser.
CB: David Alaba – 7/10
He kept things tidy when defending inside his half and picked up an assist for Vinicius Junior’s goal.
