Madrid are unbeaten in their last 11 matches against Osasuna in LaLiga (W8 D3), since a 1-0 away loss in January 2011. They have never had a 12-game unbeaten run against them in the competition.
Jagoba Arrasate makes eight changes to his side after their loss to Celta Vigo last time out, with only Herrera, Moncayola and Ruben Garcia retaining their places from that match.
Zinedine Zidane makes four changes to the team that started against Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday. Odriozola, Blanco, Asensio and Hazard, who makes his first start since returning from injury, come in. Nacho, Modric and Kroos drop to the bench, while Dani Carvajal is out with a muscle tear.
OSASUNA SUBS: Kike Barja, Unai Garcia, Facundo Roncaglia, Juan Perez, Jonas Ramalho, Darko Brasanac, Alvaro Juan Cruz Armada, Oier Sanjurjo, Adrian Lopez, Enric Gallego, Ante Budimir, Jony.
OSASUNA STARTING XI (4-3-3): Sergio Herrera; Nacho Vidal, David Garcia, Aridane Hernandez, Manuel Sanchez; Jon Moncayola, Lucas Torro, Javi Martinez; Roberto Torres, Chimy Avila, Ruben Garcia.
REAL MADRID SUBS: Miguel Gutierrez, Toni Kroos, Sergio Arribas, Nacho, Mariano, Isco, Luka Modric, Rodrygo, Diego Altube, Andriy Lunin.
REAL MADRID STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Thibaut Courtois; Alvaro Odriozola, Eder Militao, Raphael Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro, Antonio Blanco; Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, Vinicius Junior; Karim Benzema.
Madrid have the chance to close the gap at the top of the table back to two points after Atletico Madrid’s win earlier today. They’re unbeaten in their last 18 matches in all competitions (W12 D6) but have drawn four of their previous five outings. They face an Osasuna side that have lost just one of their last seven games (W3 D3), but that defeat came last time out against Celta Vigo when they were beaten 2-1.
