Vinicius causing trouble

Fresh off the back of their Clasico victory on Sunday, Real Madrid are looking to continue their recent run of good form with another win on Wednesday evening when Osasuna travel to the capital. The Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk followed by the Camp Nou triumph has brought a positive mood back to the changing room and a third win in seven days would only add to that, particularly as it would move them to the top of LaLiga Santander. Stay with us in this live blog for the build-up to Real Madrid vs Osasuna and then updates from the match itself.

Real Madrid vs Osasuna LIVE: 0-0

This is the start of our Real Madrid vs Osasuna live blog, with our updates from this LaLiga Santander fixture following on from here. As always, the entries nearest the top are the most recent ones.

Minute 50: What a chance for Osasuna!

Osasuna break on the counter through Avila, who then squares the ball to Moncayola in the box but the forward can only hit the post! The best chance of the game so far... and it's fallen to the visitors.

Minute 46: Camavinga replaced by Rodrygo

Ancelotti has made one change at the break, bringing on Rodrygo for Camavinga, who was on a yellow card.

HALF TIME: Real Madrid 0-0 Osasuna

Real Madrid have dominated the first 45 minutes, with the likes of Vinicius and Asensio looking dangerous, yet the game remains goalless.

Minute 41: Unai Garcia tries his luck

Osasuna play a short corner out to Unai Garcia on the edge of the box, but the defender's strike goes well over the bar.

Minute 31: Vinicius goes close!

Vinicius cuts inside and strikes on goal, with a fine finger tip save required to prevent it from creeping in the far corner.

Minute 21: Camavinga fires wide

Asensio drives through the Osasuna defence and sets up Camavinga, but the Frenchman, on his weaker right foot, strikes into the side netting.

Minute 15: Vinicius causing trouble

Vinicius looks to be in the mood again. His pace and dribbling force Unai Garcia into a yellow card.
