    Ricardo

    Made four good saves and kept the Madrid attackers, especially Ronaldo and Benzema, at bay. Had a brilliant and encouraging game today.

  • Damià

    Damià

    Wasn't allowed to venture too often but did a good job indefence. Helped to mute crosses from being drilled in all the time from his flank.

  • Miguel Flaño

    Miguel Flaño

    Complimented Sergio well at centre-back but was left exposed on his left. Nevertheless, he did his best to make life tough for Madrid.

  • Sergio

    Sergio

    Had a great game at the back as he dispossessed Ronaldo of one great chance that the Portuguese had. Sergio was immense and he also helped his side push forward.

  • Nélson
    39
    8
    0.00

    Nélson

    Played like a left-winger rather than as a left-back at times and often left himself exposed at the back. However, Nelson did put the Madrid backline in trouble on occasions and tested Casillas with a shot as well as several crosses.

  • Soriano
    37
    11
    0.00

    Soriano

    Did his best to control the midfield and stop the Madrid attackers from enforcing themselves on the match. Didn't always succeed to contain the Blancos attacks, though.

  • Patxi Puñal
    39
    10
    0.00

    Patxi Puñal

    Pushed his team forward from the midfield, joined in the attacks, linked up with the players in front of him and made life tough for Madrid. He worked hard too.

  • Javi Camuñas
    75
    11
    0.00

    Javi Camuñas

    Was all over the pitch. Was present with his crosses and link-up plays and also scored a beautiful goal. Didn't allow the Madrid backline to have much rest today.

  • Coro
    37
    9
    0.00

    Coro

    Went close with a chance early in the match and looked good on the runs down the right. Didn't have a particularly great match but was important as a 'support actor' in the drama at Osasuna.

  • Pandiani
    45
    9
    0.00

    Pandiani

    Could have scored two goals, one of which was a free header. The Uruguayan forward looked mobile and fired up against Madrid but his lack of clinical ability to day turned him down.

  • Carlos Aranda

    Carlos Aranda Top of the Match

    Created the goal for Camunas and was also at the heart of Vadocz chance that was cleared off the line. Had a very encouraging and fruitful second-half.

  • Krisztian Vadocz
    39

    2.50

    Krisztian Vadocz

    Came on for the second-half and had one great chance late in the match that he would probably count himself a bit unlucky.

  • Raúl Albiol
    37
    73
    0.00

    Raúl Albiol

    Looked somewhat uncertain at centre-back and also appeared a bit of a mess at times when Osasuna attacked. Had an average game overall.

  • Ricardo Carvalho
    32
    68
    0.00

    Ricardo Carvalho

    Didn't have a particularly world class game in defence as he looked unsure when Pandiani played down the centre and also played the strikers onside.

  • Arbeloa
    40
    63
    0.00

    Arbeloa

    Defensively did enough but lacked the attacking prowess. However, he made a clearance off the line late in the second-half from a Vadocz attempt to give Madrid a lifeline.

  • Xabi Alonso
    61
    54
    3.00

    Xabi Alonso

    Distributed the ball intelligently but couldn't turn the tide or stop the Osasuna midfielders from getting deep inside his own half.

  • Mesut Özil
    210
    62
    0.00

    Mesut Özil

    Played a great ball for Benzema in the first-half and also went close with a brilliant free-kick in the second session. The German creative midfielder didn't look very imposing on the game but he did reveal his invention and creativity from time to time.

  • Emmanuel Adebayor
    86
    89
    3.00

    Emmanuel Adebayor

    Didn't have the dream debut he would have, well, dreamed of, but the Togolese striker did do his confidence some good. Had a header saved and also tried to go on a run.

  • Ángel Di María
    43
    124
    0.00

    Ángel Di María

    Played decently in the first-half as he combined with Ronaldo and Benzema but was largely disappointing today. An average performance form the Argentina international.

Substitutions

  • Iker Casillas
    55
    88
    2.50

    Iker Casillas

    Made one good save but looked shaky on a few occasions. Could have cost his side a goal around the 15-minute mark when he failed to read a cross from the left and let it bounce off his arm.

  • Sergio Ramos
    37
    82
    0.00

    Sergio Ramos

    Was troubled on the right by Camunas and looked average today. Didn't manage to get forward and threaten as he often does and also didn't whip in too many crosses.

  • Sami Khedira
    52
    75
    0.00

    Sami Khedira

    Had an average game, did nothing exceptional of note and still picked up a yellow card.

  • Lassana Diarra
    47
    134
    0.00

    Lassana Diarra Flop of the Match

    Made the tackles in the middle, broke the opposition's play and tried to gain control in the middle of the park. Had a good game personally.

  • Kaká
    74
    93
    0.00

    Kaká

    Tried to drift in from the left and move centrally. Created one or two half-chances for his team-mates and also went for goal himself.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo
    78
    218
    0.00

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Had a great chance in the first-half when he could have been more urgent and not held on to the ball for as long as he did. Forced saves from Ricardo but had a sub-par match compared to his high standards.

  • Karim Benzema
    72
    108
    0.00

    Karim Benzema

    Had three good chances, two of them in the first-half but failed. Today the France international appeared more mobile than he has usually been this season and also looked more confident as he tried an audacious volley but he couldn't be clinical enough to merit a goal.
