Osasuna tries to respond, but Real Madrid’s defense holds strong
Despite the early setback, Osasuna tried to mount a comeback. They had a few chances to score, but Real Madrid’s defense was determined to keep a clean sheet. It was clear that Los Blancos were missing some key players, such as Sergio Ramos, who was out injured. However, the likes of Raphael Varane, Nacho Fernandez, and Ferland Mendy did an excellent job of keeping Osasuna’s attackers at bay.

It was a fantastic goal that put the tie beyond doubt and sent Real Madrid into the next round of the Copa del Rey.
In conclusion, Real Madrid has taken another step closer to securing their 20th Copa del Rey title, thanks to Rodrygo’s delightful display.
