Eder Militao almost puts it in his own net! On a wet night that is a goal! The young defender overhits his back pass to Courtois, the Belgian scurries back to save it from going in. What a disaster that would have been for Madrid.
Los Rojillos are really threatening Madrid now and have them under pressure at the back. There is quality there with Avila, Torres and Garcia. Avila was linked with a move to Barcelona in Janaury 2020, before he got a serious knee injury that ruled him out for months.
Excellent footwork from the Argentine. He spins and gets a left-footed shot away. Easy save for Courtois. Avila is a threat to any team in LaLiga. Hazard’s cross finds Herrera in goal, who spills to Vinicius, but the Brazilian is not able to hit the target.
Madrid have started well. If you’re wondering how Zidane has set up his front four – Asensio is on the right, Vinicius on the left and Hazard in the 10 behind Benzema.
The defender trained as normal on Friday, but Zidane decided against risking him in tonight’s league meeting with Osasuna. Manu Sanchez’s left wing cross almost sneaks in from a tight angle, somehow Courtois slaps it away to keep the game at 0-0.
Hazard has to score! A fantastic left wing cross from Marcelo finds Hazard all alone at the back post…Herrera produces an excellent save. From the resulting corner Militao rises highest to test Herrera again from a header. Herrera comes out on top once again! 0-0
