It was a near-perfect outing for Real Madrid at El Sadar as they made easy work of CA Osasuna, securing a 4-2 win.

Vinicius Jr. was the star of the show with two goals while Dani Carvajal and Brahim Diaz were also on target for Los Blancos, as they strengthened their lead at the top.

It was important for Real Madrid to put in such a performance, for they can go into the international break on a high note, with their advantage at the top intact.

Brahim Diaz claims this Real Madrid side has no ceiling

Speaking after the game, one of the goalscorers, Brahim Diaz, heaped praise on this Real Madrid side, claiming that the team has no ceiling.

“This is Real Madrid. We’ve gone many games without losing, which doesn’t usually happen. And this is what Real Madrid asks of you; we are showing that we are here to win everything. This team has no ceiling,” he said.

Discussing the performance against Osasuna, he added: “We played a great game. I highlight the team’s attitude, how we approached the game because this pitch is not easy.”

On his own good form in recent months, Brahim added: “I feel very good. I’m very happy to be at the best club in the world. You have to have responsibility on the pitch, give the maximum, and that’s what I’m doing.”

The 24-year-old then went on to praise Vinicius Jr. for his performance on the day, saying: “Vinícius is out of this world. He does different things. It’s incredible what he does. Having him in the team makes it easy for you to almost go 1-0 up in every game.”

Vinicius elated with win

Vinicius Jr. also spoke to Real Madrid TV after the match and discussed his performance, stating that he will try and improve his goalscoring rate after missing a few chances today.

“I don’t think about the chances I score, but I do now after the game about the ones I miss. I’m working every day to score more goals,” the Brazilian remarked.

On his feelings after his recent run of form, Vinicius added: “I’m feeling very good, always trying to improve my game and play more inside to score more goals. The coach gave me this freedom and I’m taking advantage of it.”

Praising the team’s current run of form, the 23-year-old remarked: “A great game, not just mine, but that of the whole team. We’re having a great season. We’re defending very well and in attack we’re all on the up.”

“The good things are coming and we all have to be ready for the good games, we have to be at our best. We have to continue like this, like today, when we won on a difficult pitch,” he added.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
