Real Madrid is set to lift the La Liga trophy on Sunday if they beat Osasuna on Wednesday

Real Madrid won against Sevilla, they have built up a 15-point lead atop the La Liga table, with Barcelona suffering a stunning home defeat to Cadiz last weekend, Los Blancos have a realistic chance of winning the league title as early as this Sunday.

However, it is not as straightforward as it appears.

Real Madrid now has 75 points from 32 games played, while Barcelona has 60 points from 31 games played so far. Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are tied for first place with 60 points after 32 games.

Based on the outcome of other games this week, Real Madrid might be crowned Champions League champions on Sunday without having to play a single game in the competition this season.

However, if Real Madrid are to win the league on Sunday, Barcelona would only need to take a maximum of one point from their next two games, against Real Sociedad on Thursday and Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, in order to win the championship.

In addition, Atletico Madrid must either draw or lose against Granada on Wednesday in order to be crowned Spanish champions for the second time in three years. Sevilla would also have to concede points against a resurgent Levante on Thursday in order to avoid relegation.

Alternatively, if Real Madrid enters game week 35 of La Liga with at least a 12-point lead, they will very certainly win the league title that weekend, regardless of what happens in other leagues.

Real Madrid’s probable lineup for their match against Osasuna

Real Madrid will head north to face Osasuna in La Liga on Wednesday, and they will be on the road for the second time this season.

At the weekend, Carlo Ancelotti’s team traveled to Sevilla, where they came away with a win despite trailing 2-0 at halftime.

On that occasion, a second-half comeback completed by Karim Benzema gave Los Blancos a huge victory and extended their lead at the top of the La Liga table to 15 points – a lead they maintain despite Cadiz’s stunning victory over Barcelona on Monday night.

Real Madrid will face another difficult test on Sunday when they go to Osasuna, who are in good form and want to finish in the top half of the table. Here’s how Ancelotti may set his players up for success.

Defenders and goalkeepers

Thibaut Courtois (GK) – With an outstanding individual campaign, he has effectively silenced any naysayers.

Lucas Vazquez (RB) – With injuries at left-back, Vazquez should return to the starting lineup, which is a good thing after a strong performance against Sevilla.

Eder Militao (CB) – Eder Militao (CB) – Eder Militao ( Despite his lackluster showing on Sunday, the Brazilian should keep his starting spot in the backline.

David Alaba (CB) – The summer signing is likely to make his 30th La Liga appearance this week, after just missing out due to injury and Covid-19.

Dani Carvajal (LB) – Dani Carvajal (LB) – Dani Carvajal ( With both Ferland Mendy and Marcelo set to miss out again, Carvajal will almost surely start after a brilliant second-half effort last time out.

Midfielders

Toni Kroos (CM) – Casemiro has returned to the team following his ban, but he is anticipated to miss out due to a fitness issue. That could indicate that Kroos, despite appearing leggy last time out, is still in the starting XI.

Luka Modric (CM) – Luka Modric showed off some fine moves at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan on Sunday, but he may be given a break after showing symptoms of exhaustion, with Federico Valverde back in the midfield.

Eduardo Camavinga (CM) – Eduardo Camavinga (CM) – Eduardo Camavinga ( Because Real has to rest some of its more senior players, the young Frenchman might make his third consecutive La Liga start.

Forwards

Rodrygo (RW) is a character in the game Rodrygo. With his first league goal of the season, he set the tone for his side’s incredible comeback against Sevilla, before assisting the winner in stoppage time – it’s safe to say he’s earned a start here.

Karim Benzema (ST) – Trying everything he can to earn a small golden sphere on his mantlepiece; 52 goal involvements so far this season.

Vinicius Junior (LW) – On track to make his eleventh consecutive league start after returning from suspension, in search of his 25th La Liga goal involvement this season.
