Casemiro and Isco were two of Madrid's best players against Osasuna on Sunday afternoon. The two players have a tendency to play well against Osasuna, who surely hate seeing their names on the teamsheet. 

For Isco, he has been involved in six goals in his last four games against Osasuna. Three goals and three assists. His strike in the first half on Sunday was his 50th in LaLiga. The malagueño scored one goal in the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia but it was his first goal of the season domestically. 

Casemiro continues in his excellent vein of form with another fine performance in Pamplona. His assist for Ramos to put Real Madrid proved decisive. That goal sent Madrid in on top at the break and they never looked back. It was his second assist in LaLiga this season with the first coming against Osasuna at the Bernabéu.

This season, Casemiro's attacking input has been vital. He has scored four goals and given four assists and when he isn't on the field, often, Real Madrid are left wanting. They have won just once in the four games the Brazilian has not played this season.

Collectively, Real Madrid have not beaten any other team more than Osasuna (47). Next is Barcelona (43). There is not team they have netted more goals against either with 168.
