Real Madrid vs Osasuna: Football Tips and Predictions
Modric remains one of the best midfielders in Europe at the moment and the Real Madrid coaching staff will dearly miss him if he doesn’t recover on time for the big clash ahead.
Though Real Madrid is covered with a lot of players in the midfield, the team has the necessary depth to cope in the midfield and manager Carlo Ancelotti would look at his bench for a replacement against Osasuna on Sunday.
Edouardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and Dani Ceballos are among the options the manager will call upon to fill the space left by the Croatian maestro.
Karim Benzema is also back in contention for a space after he recovered from his thigh injury to train with the first team, Rodrygo could play on the right wing and Valverde will replace Modric in the middle of the pack for a triumvirate midfield setup against Osasuna but against Barcelona, it would another ball game.
