The champions of La Liga should be able to continue their excellent start to the season by recording another win this weekend

The international break is over, and Real Madrid is looking to maintain their six-game La Liga win streak alive when they welcome Osasuna to the Bernabeu this weekend. Los Blancos are the only club in the major five leagues to have won all of their domestic league matches so far this season.

Osasuna are off to a good start this year and sit in fifth place in the league table with four wins and two losses.

The home side could be without the services of Karim Benzema yet again as he is coming back from an injury. With Champions League fixtures coming up next week, even if he is healthy to play, it would not be surprising to see him start on the bench.

Let’s look at the betting odds for this Week 7 matchup between Real Madrid and Osasuna.

Real Madrid vs Osasuna odds are current as of Thursday, Sept. 29, on BetMGM Sportsbook.

Los Blancos are the clear favorites in this contest and should secure all three points at the Bernabeu. There is no value betting on the over 2.5 goals in the game as it is heavily juiced, but I do like both teams to not score. Osasuna does not have a prolific attack that can penetrate the Real Madrid backline and will struggle to break through.

Real Madrid vs Osasuna Betting Tips

Los Madridistas should comfortably win their seventh straight La Liga match of the season this weekend. Real Madrid has not lost in their last 14 La Liga games against Osasuna with 10 wins and four losses. Osaunsa lines up in a 4-2-3-1 and is not a team that holds possession.

They will rely on the counter attack and pushing the ball up the field with their midfielders and strikers. Four of Osasuna’s six games have had a team win to nil.

Without Benzema, the Real Madrid attack has not skipped a beat as they defeated Mallorca 4-1 in their last La Liga match before the international break. Eden Hazard and Rodrygo Goes have been playing as false nines at the top of the attack, and Vinicius Jr. continues to create havoc on the left wing.

Real Madrid vs Osasuna Prediction

Real Madrid 2-0 Osasuna

A clean sheet is in play for Real Madrid against a club that struggles to create quality chances. Osasuna racks up double-digit shots every game but fails to consistently have more than five shots on target. Thibaut Courtois is in form and should not be troubled much in this contest.

Real Madrid vs Osasuna Best Bets

WAGER: 1 Unit

The last three times these two clubs faced off at the Bernabeu, the results were a 0-0 draw, 2-0 Madrid win, and another 2-0 win for the Madridistas. The home side has yet to keep a clean sheet in La Liga play this season, but this is where they turn it around defensively.

➕Multiple Correct Score 1:0, 2:0, 3:0 (+170) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

This is another bet that doubles down on Osasuna failing to find the back of the net this weekend. If Real Madrid is clicking offensively, they can easily score three goals against this defense. Osasuna has yet to concede more than two goals in a single match this season and will enter this contest with a defensive game plan.
