Osasuna 2-4 Real Madrid: Player ratings as Madrid overcome Osasuna to extend lead at the top of LaLiga


Real  Madrid took an early lead with their first attack of the game as Vinícius Jr pounced on a loose ball and raced across goal before finishing coolly past the keeper.

But their lead lasted just three minutes, Ante Budimir soon equalizing for Osasuna from close range after Jorge Herrando caught him with a cross.

Madrid then went back in front in great fashion when Federico Valverde’s skilful cut-back from the left touchline was finished off by Dani Carvajal with the outside of the boot.

The La Liga leaders dominated after the break and got a third just after the hour when Valverde found Brahim Díaz with a pass to the defense and the Morocco international finished calmly.

And a few minutes later it was 4:1. Valverde was the provider again, this time with his chest, and Vinícius netted his second of the afternoon with a superb finish from a tight angle.

Iker Muñoz did give Osasuna a goal with a late shot through the legs of Andriy Lunin, but the points belonged to Real Madrid.

Substitute Arda Güler almost added a fifth goal in the 93rd minute when he tried to lob the Osasuna inside keeper but the Turkish youngster rattled the crossbar agonizingly.

Girona will have the chance to cut Real Madrid’s lead back to seven points when they face Getafe later on Saturday.
