La Liga result – Frustrated Real Madrid held at home by 10-man Osasuna despite Vinicius Junior goal

Osasuna secured their second consecutive away point at the Santiago Bernabeu to end Real Madrid’s 100 per cent record in La Liga, as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

Los Rojillos came into the match knowing they had not tasted victory over Los Blancos since 2011 and Jagoba Arrasate’s side held their own in the opening exchanges in search of another positive result.

However, a moment of good fortune proved to work in Madrid’s favour three minutes before the break, as Vinicius Jr.’s cross from the left flank evaded everyone, including Osasuna goalkeeper Sergio Herrera as it found its way into the far corner to give Los Blancos the lead.

Osasuna then struck six minutes after half-time to level proceedings. Kike Garcia’s looping header found its way over Real Madrid stand-in goalkeeper Andrey Lunin as the striker marked his first start of the season with a goal.

Real Madrid then had a golden opportunity to take the lead with ten minutes to play, as they were awarded a penalty following a VAR review after David Garcia bundled down Karim Benzema in the area. The Osasuna defender was then sent off for preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Benzema stepped up to the spot, but the striker saw his effort smack against the top of the crossbar and go behind, as Herrera breathed a sigh of relief in the Osasuna goal.

Ten-man Osasuna saw out the remainder of the game to continue their impressive start of the season and move up into 6th place in La Liga.
