Real Madrid close to the Spanish League title by beating Osasuna | Football


Real Madrid continued on its way to winning the Spanish Football League for the 35th time in its history by beating Osasuna 3-1 this Wednesday, with goals from David Alaba, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vázquez, while Karim Benzema missed two penalties.

Real’s account is 78 points, 17 points ahead of its closest rival, Atlético de Madrid, who previously drew 0-0 with Granada.

Barcelona is third and Sevilla is fourth, behind Atletico, by one point, before the two teams meet on Thursday.

Real needs 4 points from the last 5 matches to secure the title.

Alaba scored in the 12th minute, with a shot from close range following a free kick, but Osasuna equalized two minutes later through Ante Bodemir after a quick counterattack.

Asensio was in the right place and at the right time to follow a counterattack from teammate Dani Ceballos and score the second goal.

Benzema missed two penalties in the 5 minutes of the second half, when goalkeeper Sergio Herrera stood out and saved both attempts.

But things were not resolved until the last seconds, when substitute Vinicius Junior penetrated down the left flank and sent a ball over Vázquez on goal.
