Jagoba Arrasate (Osasuna): "We play at home and we have to play a great game. We know that we are facing the current LaLiga champion, which is a great team. The pitch is perfect to play."

Predictions

SportsMole's Matt Law: Osasuna 0-2 Real Madrid

"Madrid's recent form has been excellent, and we are finding it difficult to back anything other than comfortable away win this weekend. Osasuna has drawn their last three but have not won since the end of October and have struggled for results against the capital giants."

WhoScored's Simon Harrison: Osasuna 1-2 Real Madrid

"Osasuna are unbeaten in their last four games, drawing three of them. In La Liga, however, the hosts are winless in their last 10 matches but have drawn their last three in a row.

"Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last eight games, but have recently dropped points on the road to Elche."
