RM vs OSA Dream11 Tips for Real Madrid vs Osasuna La Liga Fixtures 1 May


RM vs OSA Dream11: Real Madrid welcomes Osasuna to the Spanish capital for a La Liga tie. The Los Blancos have been pulled back into the title race as they sit 2 points behind fierce rivals, Atletico Madrid who are on top of the table. Real have been in poor form though with just 1 win from their last 5 games. Osasuna ended their 6-game unbeaten run with a 2-1 defeat to Celta Vigo last weekend. They are in 11th place and will look to seal their spot in mid-table while pushing for a top-half finish. They are also 10 points clear of the relegation zone and should be fairly relaxed in that aspect.

Date: 2 May, Sunday
Kick-Off: 12:30 am (IST)
Venue: Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, Madrid

La Liga Table: Real Madrid is in 2nd place with Osasuna in 11th.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Karim Benzema – Karim Benzema has been immense this season as usual with 21 goals and 7 assists. He has scored 3 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games for the club including a stunning goal against Chelsea in the Champions League. He has created 37 chances, attempted 50 shots on target and succeeded in 32 dribbles.

Toni Kroos – Toni Kroos has 3 goals and 8 assists in La Liga this season. The German international has created 71 chances and succeeded in an impressive 94% of his attempted dribbles. Kroos has whipped in 37 accurate crosses at a 31% success rate as well.

Differential Pick

Ante Budimir – The Croatian international has 7 goals in his 15 starts for the club so far. He is on loan from Mallorca and been quite impressive. Budimir has created 8 chances, dispatched 17 shots on target and succeeded in 50% of his attempted dribbles. He bagged the winner recently against Villarreal. Though he has not scored since then, he will look to bother the Real defence and look to score an early goal.

RM vs OSA Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Herrera
Defenders – Marcelo, Varane, Odriozola
Midfielders – Hazard, Kroos (VC), Asensio, Torro
Forwards – Benzema (C), Lopez, Budimir

Likely Winner:

Real Madrid should be boosted as another opportunity to win the league presents itself. They will look to put pressure on Atletico Madrid and Barcelona and get a win in response to their back-to-back draws. This game should be a win for Zinedine Zidane’s but it is not written in stone. Jagoba Arrasate would have studied Real’s last few games and they can get a result from the RM vs OSA Today Match Prediction should they play their cards right. If Real are to win the league, they need to go on a winning streak starting with this fixture.
