In order to move even closer to winning the LaLiga Santander championship on Wednesday night, Real Madrid defeated Osasuna 3-1 at El Sadar.
Even though Los Blancos had led for the entirety of the second half, the outcome was far from certain for the majority of the game, and it took until the final minutes of stoppage time to declare the victory conclusive.
The first goal scored by Real Madrid was one Carlo Ancelotti would have been proud of. David Alaba was squared for by Karim Benzema after a well-executed free kick, and the Austrian turned home after his second request.

But that lead was gone in less than a minute. After Chimy Avila broke forward and crossed, Ante Budimir quickly drew even, allowing the latter to finish with ease. Soon after the halfway point, Budimir once more had the ball in the net, but his goal was disallowed for offside.
However, Real Madrid did hold a lead going into halftime thanks to a goal by Marco Asensio just before the buzzer, capping off an attempt from Dani Ceballos that had been saved.
Los Blancos received two penalties during an odd eight-minute stretch of the second half, and Benzema shockingly missed both of his 12-yard tries.
But in the final seconds of stoppage time, Lucas Vazquez secured the victory. Toni Kroos and Benzema displayed excellent interplay.
