Real Madrid takes another big step towards the LaLiga title with a 3-1 win over Osasuna.

The hosts didn’t make it easy for them, with Budimir equalising less than a minute after Alaba gave Madrid the lead in the first half.

Asensio put them back ahead on the stroke of half-time, though. Then, after the break, Benzema saw two spot-kicks well saved by Herrera.

But Vazquez sealed the three points with the last kick of the game when he coolly slotted into the bottom corner.

Starting lineup:

OSASUNA (4-3-3): Sergio Herrera; Cote, Nacho Vidal, Aridane Hernandez, David Garcia, Nacho Vidal; Javi Martinez, Jon Moncayola, Darko Brasanac; Chimy Avila, Ante Budimir, Ruben Garcia.

SUBSTITUTES: Manuel Sanchez, Unai Garcia, Roberto Torres, Iker Benito, Oier Sanjurjo, Juan Perez, Jonas Ramalho, Inigo Perez, Barbero, Kiko Barja.

REAL MADRID (4-3-3): Thibaut Courtois; Lucas Vazquez, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Nacho Fernandez; Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Ceballos; Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema, Rodrygo.

SUBSTITUTES: Andriy Lunin, Toni Fuidias, Dani Carvajal, Toni Kroos, Vinicius Junior, Isco, Juan Latasa, Rafael Zamora.

Goals:

1-0 MADRID! Lovely free-kick routine payoffs for the visitors. Asensio goes short to Ceballos, who chips to the back post where Benzema squares across. Herrera denies Alaba, but the save rebounds off the Austria international and ends up in the back of the net!

1-1 OSASUNA INSTANTLY RESPOND! Just as Madrid edge ahead, Avila goes down the other end and whips across for Budimir, who is unmarked at the back post and taps into an empty net.

2-1 MADRID! The visitors restored their lead through Asensio’s ninth league goal. Camavinga dinks over the top for Ceballos, who sees his shot saved by Herrera but Asensio is there to tap in on the rebound.

VAZQUEZ SCORES! And that should do it for Madrid! The move starts with a lovely turn from Benzema, and Kroos switches it out to Vinicius. He rides the challenge from Vidal and squares it into the middle for Vazquez. He hits it the first time, and Herrera can’t get down to keep it out. 3-1 Madrid.

So, what’s next?

Madrid moves 18 points clear of second-place Barcelona, and Ancelotti’s side is just four points away from the trophy.

They’re not in action again until next Tuesday when they face Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final.

Osasuna stays in ninth with that loss, but Arrasate will hope they can get back to winning ways against Elche in their next league game.
