FULL TIME: Real Madrid 4-0 Osasuna
91'
Ronaldo look like he's had some ice on his left thigh and has disappeared up the tunnel before the full time whistle. I don't think there's much to worry about for Real Madrid there, though.
90'
Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.
87'
So far we've managed to get through this whole game without a booking. Marcelo clatters into Oriol, but the ref keeps his cards in his pocket. There's still time though....
86'
And now Arribas is down holding his shoulder. He's coming off the pitch and it looks like Osasuna might have to play the final five minutes or so with ten men, having used all their changes.
85'
This result will close the gap at the top of the league table to just three points. However, Atletico are still to play this weekend and with just three games to go after Sunday time is running out for Real Madrid.
84'
That's Carvajal's fourth goal of the season. Not a bad contribution for a full back!
Real Madrid Goal

Header - Top Center

82'
 
GOAL! Real Madrid 4 (82 mins - Dani Carvajal) Osasuna 0. Another excellent goal. Isco picks out the run of Carvajal, who has a look around and sees Andres off his line before flicking it over him with his head.
81'
Acuna is down on the ground in pain having dropped to the floor awkwardly. He jumped for the ball with Nacho, but came down pretty hard. Good to see that he's back on his feet now. Seems to be okay.
80'
Intelligent play by Morata to get to the byline with grace, but his pass across the face of goal is played just ahead of Isco, who would have had a tap in had he made a connection.

Di Maria had overtaken Bale as Madrid's top assist man, & his cross for Ramos now makes him top assister in league with 14.

78'
Acuna breaks down the right side after being played through by Oriol, and the Osasuna attacker wins a corner kick. Can they find a consolation goal before the full time whistle?
Osasuna Substitution
77'
 
Osasuna sub: Emiliano Armenteros OFF, Cristian Lobato ON.
76'
Apologies for the delay in updates. Technical problems. Anyway, you haven't missed much. Just pretty much as you were, with Real Madrid controlling the ball and Osasuna inviting pressure on top of themselves.
Real Madrid Substitution
70'
Indeed, the tempo has dropped out of Real Madrid's game as they just look to see out the clock. And Osasuna seem quite happy just to let them have the ball.
68'
Osasuna break through the Real Madrid backline for the first time in the second half, but De Las Cuevas loses his composure when he needs it most and overhits his cross to the back post.
67'
 
Real Madrid sub: Luka Modric OFF, Xabi Alonso ON.
Real Madrid Substitution
66'
Di Maria hasn't been as effective tonight as he has been in previous games. That could be down to the fact that he's been on the wing, whereas he's been so impressive in the centre of midfield in 2014.
64'
Should also mention that Ronaldo's second goal has now tied him with Luis Suarez in the race for the European Golden Boot. Both players have been in sensational form this season.
Osasuna Substitution
63'
 
Osasuna sub: Oriol Riera OFF, Javier Acuna ON.
Real Madrid Substitution
62'
No great surprise that Ancelotti has decided to take off Ronaldo. He'll want to keep him fresh for the Bayern Munich game, and having just recovered from injury, it's probably the right decision. The job is done tonight.
61'
 
Real Madrid sub: Cristiano Ronaldo OFF, Casemiro ON.
60'
And that's the points wrapped up for Real Madrid. Will they now ease off a little or will they continue to go for the throat?
Real Madrid Goal

Header - Bottom Center

59'
 
GOAL! Real Madrid 3 (59 mins - Sergio Ramos) Osasuna 0. Ramos has his goal! Di Maria plays an excellent cross into the box, and the defender, who has been desperate for a goal all night, powers it home with his head.
Osasuna Substitution
58'
 
Osasuna sub: Raoul Cedric Loe OFF, Sanjurjo Oier ON.
57'
Loe is off the pitch for the moment but the game is continuing, with Real Madrid attacking the opposition goal. Ronaldo loses his footing as he prepares to take a shot and the ball goes behind for a goal kick.
56'
Uh oh. Loe stretches to intercept a pass between Ronaldo and Isco, and the Osasuna midfielder seems to have pulled his right hamstring. He's going to be taken off here. Shame to see.
55'
As if it was in any doubt before, Real Madrid are now in complete control of this game. Ancelotti can probably start thinking about Tuesday's game against Bayern Munich. Ronaldo to come off maybe?

RECORD: Ronaldo is the 1st Real Madrid player in the history of La Liga to score 30+ goals in 4 consecutive seasons. (@InfoCristiano)

53'
That was simply out of this word. He now has 30 league goals this season, but I doubt he's scored a better brace than the two he's scored tonight. Unbelievable.
Real Madrid Goal

Right Footed - Top Right

51'
 
GOAL! Real Madrid 2 (51 mins - Cristiano Ronaldo) Osasuna 0. Oh. My. Goodness! You thought his first goal was good? This is even better! He cuts inside and from 25 yards sticks the ball into the top corner. No chance for Andres.
50'
Illarramendi has been solid in the centre of midfield. He's drawn criticism from some this season and still looks like he needs Alonso alongside him, but that hasn't been the case tonight.
49'
Modric picks up the ball 30 yards out and fires an effort towards goal, but his shot just goes inches over the crossbar. That would have been a special goal. Good strike.
48'
I suppose while the score remains 1-0 Osasuna have a chance. It only takes one mistake or a spot of good fortune to draw the scores level.
47'
Good chance for the visitors! De Las Cuevas plays a decent cross into the box, but it's slightly behind Armenteros. However, the attacker attemps an acrobatic attempt and the ball flashes just past the post!
46'
The dilemma for Osasuna in this second half is this: do they press forward and leave themselves exposed at the back? Or do they go into damage limitation mode and just settle for a narrow defeat?
46'
HALF TIME: Real Madrid 1-0 Osasuna
45'
The second half has started between Real Madrid and Osasuna!
-
What did you make of the first half? Should Real Madrid have scored more? Do they risk a fightback from Osasuna in the second half? Tweet me (@grahamruthven)!
-
Real Madrid clearly deserve their 1-0 lead at the break, but should they have added a few more to the tally before the break? Ronaldo looks in top form, which will be a worry for any Bayern Munich fans watching.
45'
Modric fires a shot at goal from the edge of the box, but Andres gets down quickly to make the save and force the ball away from danger. Morata can't do enough with the rebound and Osasuna survive once again.
43'
Both players are back on their feet and look okay to continue, which is a relief. The ball is given back to Real Madrid, who once again come back at Osasuna, who are holdin on for the half time whistle.
42'
Morata and Arribas chase down a long ball, with the keeper coming off his line to clear out both players. Play has now stopped with the two guys down on the turf after taking a clattering. Looked a sore one.
41'
Isco takes control of the ball on the edge of the box, but when he plays it to the overlapping Marcelo, the Brazilian gets a bit too excited and skews the ball well over the bar.
39'
Another good save from Andres. This time Ronaldo gets the beating of his marker to get to the byline, cutting a cross back for Morata. But the young striker can't make a good enough connection and the Osasuna keeper makes the save.
38'
Ronaldo shoots at goal from just inside the left side of the penalty area, but Andres is alert to the danger and pushes it away from the goal at his near post. Decent strike and decent save.
37'
That's two good chances Ramos has passed up. The Spanish centre backs likes to abandon his defensive duties from time to time. Okay, all the time.
36'
Well, that was different. Ronaldo plays a wonderful chipped pass from the freekick, but Ramos blasts over the bar on the volley. He was unmarked! That's clearly something Real Madrid have worked on at the training ground.
35'
Morata wins a freekick 25 yards out from goal. I wonder who will take this one?
34'
Isco tries to thread through Di Maria, who has been unusually quiet in the opening half an hour of this game. However, Oriol comes across to make the interception and prevent a chance from developing.
33'
Both Atletico and Barcelona play their fixtures tomorrow, meaning Real Madrid can at least put some pressure on their rivals over night. Three of Real Madrid's last four league fixtures are at home.
31'
Real Madrid are piling the pressure on Osasuna at the moment. It's a case of defending deep and hoping for the best for the away team.
30'
 
Marcelo picks out Ronaldo with a wonderful chipped pass, but he blasts over the bar on the volley. To spare his blushes, the flag is raised for offside, but looking at the replays, there wasn't much in it.
29'
Woooft! Ronaldo lines up a freekick from an incredibly tight angle, and strikes the ball just inches wide of the post. I thought it was in for a moment! Sensational technique, and he looks in the mood tonight.
27'
Of course, Real Madrid need a win tonight to keep their slim chances of winning the league alive. They're six points behind Atletico Madrid, with just four games left to play this season.
26'
Lopez has had very little to do so far tonight. He must be getting used to that as the first choice Real Madrid keeper in the league. Ancelotti has done well to interchange between two exceptional keepers all year.
25'
Ronaldo and Modric link-up brilliantly, exchanging passes and back heels on the edge of the box, but when it's worked out to Nacho, overlapping down the right side, the final ball is poor.
24'
Real Madrid are looking for a second here, but since finding the opener they've taken their foot off the pedal somewhat. They're still very much in control of the game, but maybe not as dangerous right now.
22'
Ramos comes close! A Real Madrid counter attack releases Ronaldo down the left side, with the number seven playing a great cross into the box for Ramos to attack. But he heads his effort over the bar.
21'
Isco beats three playes with three fantastic touches of the ball, but he's then barged off the ball by Arribas. The play stops with everyone expecting a freekick, but the Osasuna gets away with it, much to his own surprise.
20'
Modric is barged over by Oriol rather cynically. The Croatian has been one of Real Madrid's best players this season. He's come a long way since he was voted the worst signing of the season by Marca readers.
18'
As was the case against Bayern during the week, Isco is dropping very deep into the midfield to pick up the ball. At times he's even playing as a defensive midfielder. Unusual to see him playing that way.
17'
Osasuna win a corner kick on the right side, but Armenteros' curled delivery to the back is flicked behind for another set piece by Nacho, with Arribas lurking at the back post. Nacho needed to make that touch.
15'
This time Osasuna get into the Real Madrid half, but Cejudo's deflected effort off Ramos ends up comfortably in the hands of Lopez. That's better from the away side, though.
14'
Osasuna and camped in their own half at the moment. And when they do break forward Oriol is wasteful with the ball and Real Madrid come back at them once again. It's relentless. I suspect Los Blancos might score a few more tonight.
13'
It's pouring at the Bernabeu. It's making the surface very greasy, and it's proving a little difficult for the players to get used to. The rain in Spain, and all that.
12'
There are a lot of Real Madrid players who have a point to prove tonight. Morata looks very lively, as he looks to impress Ancelotti (and maybe even a few managers who are keen to take him on loan after the summer).
11'
The corner kick comes into the box, but when it falls to the edge of the box Armenteros drags his effort wide of the target.
10'
Armenteros drifts out to the left and drives at the Real Madrid backline. When the cross comes into the box Varane gets just in front of Riera to turn behind his own goal. That was a goal had he not intervened.

Ronaldo's goal quite like one at Calderon in the 4-1 in title winning season a few years ago I reckons...

8'
That's Ronaldo's 29th league goal of the season. He has his sights set on that top scorer award!
7'
 
GOAL! Real Madrid 1 (7 mins - Cristiano Ronaldo) Osasuna 0. Wow! Incredible from Ronaldo. He cuts inside off the left wing, and smashes a shot into the bottom corner. It dips and swerves, moving all over the place. No chance for the keeper!
Real Madrid Goal

Right Footed - Bottom Right

6'
Lopez is back in the Real Madrid having missed the last few weeks of action through injury. Will be interesting to see if Casillas starts against Bayern Munich next week, like he did in the first leg.
5'
First sight of goal for Los Blancos, but Morata's tame shot is deflected wide for a corner kick. Then Varane has a header from the set piece, but the Osasuna defender blocks to send behind for another corner.
4'
They often say Real Madrid could field two teams. Well, that's effectively what Ancelotti has done tonight, making several changes from the mid-week win over Bayern Munich. Benzema is left out, with Morata starting in attack.
3'
A minute's silence was held for former Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova before kick-off, who tragically died after a battle with throat cancer on Friday.
