Real Madrid stretched their unbeaten La Liga run to six games this term thanks to a comfortable 2-0 win over Osasuna on Wednesday night
Fresh from a 1-0 away triumph over Sevilla, Los Blancos were chasing their third consecutive league victory, with two Brazilian teenagers stealing the spotlight at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Unable to outmaneuver the stubborn Osasuna defense for the majority of the first half, Los Merengues waited for Vinicius Junior’s curling effort to take a slight deflection and find the back of the net in the 36th minute.

Continuous pressure and a patient build-up play almost made it two for the hosts in the 58th minute, but Luka Jovic’s goal was disallowed for offside by VAR.
However, the 18-year-old Rodrygo made a dream start for Real, bagging a beautiful solo goal one minute after coming off the bench in the 71st minute.
The Samba Stars helped the Madrid heavyweights leapfrog the crosstown rivals Atletico and sit on the top of the table, as one of two unbeaten sides in La Liga this campaign.
