Madrid game ‘life or death’

Joseba Llorente has made clear Osasuna’s ambition to take a result from Real Madrid this weekend, in anticipation of an impending six-pointer next.

The Pamplona side have fallen to 20th in the League after another drop in form and welcome defending champions Madrid this Saturday afternoon.

“It’s a game of life or death. Not so much because it is Madrid, but because the next game against Deportivo will be worth double,” reflected the striker.

“The fans have wanted to see us react and see what we can do. Nothing is impossible and even less so playing at home and with the fans on our side.

“Hopefully it will be a nice game and competitive. Whoever will come to the ground will have an overwhelming desire to encourage the team.”
