Madrid — Real Madrid's run in the Champions League might be hurting its chances in the Spanish league.
Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Cristiano Ronaldo is healthy and will start against Osasuna on Saturday, but there are several players who could miss the match.
Striker Karim Benzema and defender Pepe both have sore knees, and forward Gareth Bale "is still a little weak" from the flu.
Ancelotti says "we'll try to recover, but physically we are not 100 percent."
Madrid trails leader Atletico Madrid by six points but has a game in hand.
