Vinicius Jr, stirring and decisive

He is the author of the only goal of Real Madrid, which could not do better than a draw against Osasuna (1-1).

With great success, the Brazilian saw his involuntary center shot deceive Sergio Herrera shortly before half-time (42nd).

But he was especially very restless on his left wing, creating many dangerous situations.

He managed several times to take his opponent by default and send very good crosses to his teammates, like this sublime outside of the foot for Benzema who saw his volley graze the frame.

There is waste in his game, but he cannot be blamed for his activity.

Unai Garcia, precious behind

The Spanish central defender (30 years old) from Osasuna delivered a very good performance this Sunday evening against the fiery attacking trio of Real Madrid.

Solid in the duels and precise in the recovery, he was, as a good captain, reassuring for his team.

He even allowed himself to deliver a decisive pass, since it was he who centered on the equalizing head of Kike Garcia (50th).

Kike Garcia, precious in front

He sometimes lacked speed when his team went on the counterattack.

But Kike Garcia still weighed on the Madrid defense with his body play and his technical quality in small spaces.

It was he who put his team back on the right track by equalizing with a nice header back to goal which lobbed Lunin (50th).

FLOPS

Karim Benzema returns but misses a penalty

He who was returning after a thigh injury was not bad in the game, far from it.

Technically correct and intelligent in his placement, the former Lyonnais (34) created a few big chances, especially when he volleyed a cross from Vinicius (38th).

But we expect a goalscorer to score, especially when he has the opportunity to take a penalty, and Karim Benzema has not succeeded.

Not the return that Real had hoped for!

Real have conceded another goal

Carlo Ancelotti's men are certainly making an excellent start to the season from an accounting point of view, with 19 points taken out of a possible 21.

But one stat hurts: Real have yet to achieve a clean sheet in La Liga, conceding a goal in each of their seven matches.

A problem which was previously without consequence but which, when the attack is less effective like this evening, costs points.

David Garcia did not help

The Spanish defender (28) had not had a bad game until his expulsion in the 79th minute, even being rather to his advantage alongside Unai Garcia in this solid central defense.

But David Garcia was guilty of a push on Karim Benzema and logically took a red card.

It is of no consequence in the end since his teammates held on, nevertheless his mistake could have been fatal to them.
