Round 16 of Copa Del Rey cup commences this week as Spanish Giants welcome Javi Gracia’s Osasuna at Santiago Bernabéu on Thursday evening.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side is in tremendous form with 14 unbeaten games in all competition. Real Madrid is more likely to with start Iker Casillas in goal where Alvaro Morata could start up front, while Karim Benzema is expected to be rested. Gareth Bale, who came on as a substitute in Monday’s 3-0 win over Celta Vigo, may start on the right side of attack. As going with facts Real Madrid has won their last 7 home matches against Osasuna in all competitions while they are undefeated in their last 8 matches in the Copa Del Rey.

Javi Gracia’s Osasuna is likely to go with the same approach they displayed back in 2013 when both the teams last met, by defending tight and looking to hit on the counter-attack. Garcia could bring in Raoul Loe into central midfield to give a rest to Lolo. Sisi is sidelined through injury, while Emiliano Armenteros and Manuel Omwu are doubts for Osasuna.
