Morata to partner Ronaldo?

Indications in the Spanish Press are that Alvaro Morata will partner Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid’s attack this evening.

Los Blancos host Osasuna looking for the three points that could take them to within three of leaders Atletico Madrid.

And AS believe they will do so with the young forward alongside the Ballon d’Or winner in a makeshift 4-4-2.

Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale are both doubts, with a knee injury and illness respectively.

And although neither are expected to be out for a long time, Carlo Ancelotti is not willing to risk them ahead of the trip to Bayern Munich next week.

As such, Morata will get only his second League start of the campaign at Santiago Bernabeu tonight.
