Under pressure just seven days ago, Zinedine Zidane could lead his side to the top of the Primera Division on Wednesday

Real Madrid host Osasuna at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, aiming to maintain the pace at the summit of La Liga.

Zinedine Zidane’s side might have had an uncertain start to the season, but tight wins over Levante and Sevilla have carried them joint top of the standings alongside Athletic Club and Granada, who have played a game more.

Osasuna, meanwhile, have made a positive impression on their return to the top flight after a year away and are as yet undefeated, though four of their five games have ended all square.

Will their record finally go in the capital?

Match Preview

Real Madrid could end Wednesday at the top of La Liga if they can overcome Osasuna at the Bernabeu.

It would be a remarkable recovery from a week previous, when they were embarrassed in a 3-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

A 1-0 weekend win over Sevilla has made it possible, though without competitive victories back-to-back this season, they are far from guaranteed to overcome opponents who are unbeaten through their first five games and who held Barcelona to a 2-2 draw in Pamplona.

Head coach Zinedine Zidane is well used to the vagaries of life at the Bernabeu and appears quite prepared to stomach them.

“When we lose, I’m out and when we win, I’m in,” he admitted to the press. “I don’t think about it, it’s just the way things are.

“I have to think about the matches and that’s all I’m interested in.”

Life, though, has been complicated at the Bernabeu because of injury concerns, with Ferland Mendy’s latest issue, announced on Tuesday, raising questions once again over the preparation of the Madrid players.

Los Blancos have sustained 65 injuries since the beginning of last season, including 15 this term alone, far exceeding the number of problems faced by Clasico rivals Barcelona (41) over the same period.

“It bothers me but it doesn’t worry me, these things can happen,” Zidane said.

Nevertheless, it leaves his side vulnerable on a more regular basis and that is what Osasuna will try to exploit when they travel to the capital.

“The fact that we’re undefeated gives us confidence that, if we do things right, we’ll be competitive,” visiting head coach Jagoba Arrasate noted. 

“We have to accumulate points and you never know where they can come from.

“It is an opportunity knowing that, in theory, it is one of the most difficult away games we have to play.”
