Zinedine Zidane’s men close gap on leaders Atletico to just two points

Real Madrid rested Toni Kroos and Luka Modric and still had enough to beat Osasuna and keep up the pace on La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid.

Eder Militao's header ensured Real Madrid's chances of retaining LaLiga remained alive with a header against Osasuna

They had to sweat for the 2-0 victory, and no-one more than Eden Hazard who started brightly but faded badly and had just been substituted when Zinedine Zidane’s team finally took the lead on 76 minutes.

Militao, who had previously been denied by Sergio Herrera, headed home from Isco’s delivery to snatch a vital win and pull Los Blancos within two points of leaders Atleti, keeping up the pressure on Barcelona and Sevilla in the meantime.

Casemiro doubled the lead with a seemingly fortunate finish as they closed the gap to rivals Atletico Madrid to two points

It was a cruel blow for Osasuna, who had looked in good position to end a 16-year losing streak at Madrid, and Casemiro’s fortuitous finish sealed the result.

With the victory, Real Madrid have 74 points whereas League Leader Athletico Madrid have 76 points.

In other La Liga match, Elche captain Fidel missed a stoppage-time penalty as Atletico Madrid picked up a narrow 1-0 win to tighten their grip on top spot in LaLiga ahead of next week’s huge showdown with Barcelona.
