There were occasions when the absences, especially Benzema’s, were felt, but Carlo Ancelotti will have food for thought the next time he is without the Frenchman after Alvaro Rodriguez’s outstanding second half performance as a substitute. After Fede Valverde had scored the opening goal, he assisted Marco Asensio in scoring the second.

Vinicius was once more in the spotlight. He has turned become a target for Real Madrid’s rival fans, and some Osasuna fans appeared to have yelled at him during the minute of silence prior to the game. He posed the biggest threat in the first half, and Madrid’s finest opportunity to score was stopped by Sergio Herrera in a one-on-one.

Just before halftime, the Brazilian was cautioned for tussling with Moi Gomez, who was also given a warning. After the two sides left the field, Ancelotti went after the referee since his Brazilian winger had only recently served his suspension and had received another caution.

Real Madrid made a strong start to the second half, with Rodrygo hitting the post with one attempt, and Vinicius scoring but being called for offside after receiving a feed from David Alaba. In response, Osasuna sent Ante Budimir near, but Thibaut Courtois made a close-range stop. Then, as Osasuna pushed for the opening goal, Moi Gomez slammed a shot off the foot of the Belgian goal post.

When no action was taken after Diego Moreno dragged Vinicius back, the Madrid bench became enraged. Nacho’s protests resulted in his arrest. After 90 minutes, it appeared as though Vinicius had extended the lead with a goal assisted by 18-year-old Alvaro Rodriguez. In the build-up, he went past the final defender, rendering the goal null and void.

But the replacement player wouldn’t be stopped; a little while later, he stole the ball high up the field and set up fellow replacement Marco Asensio, who scored to make it 2-0. Barcelona can increase their advantage against Cadiz on Sunday, but Madrid has already proven they have what it takes to contend for the title. They are also in fantastic position for the midweek trip to Anfield.
