Mourinho Wins Last Match

Goals from Gonzalo Higuain, Michael Essien, Karim Benzema and Jose Callejon secured Jose Mourinho a win in his last match in charge of Real Madrid as they ran out 4-2 winners over Osasuna.

The biggest talking point of the night, though, was the fact that Ronaldo and Iker Casillas were notably excluded from Mourinho’s squad.

Osasuna secured safety with a 2-1come from behind victory over Sevilla in their penultimate game of the campaign while Madrid would finish the season in second spot on the log no matter the result on the day.

Still, the two teams produced a six goal thriller as Osasuna fought from two goals behind to level matters before eventually falling to goals in the 70th and 90th minute.

Los Rojillos had the better first half an hour of the encounter, with young goalkeeper Jesus Fernandez forced into some good saves, notably superbly denying Joseba Llorente in the 14th minute of the game.

Despite Osasuna creating all the early chances it was Madrid who opened the scoring through Gonzalo Higuain in the 35th minute of the match.

Madrid extended their lead through Michael Essien four minutes later as the Ghanaian lost his marker before directing a powerful header past Asier Riesgo from a Mesut Ozil corner-kick.

The half ended with Madrid leading 2-0.

Osasuna pulled one back seven minutes after the break through Roberto Torres.

Alvaro Cejudo levelled matters in the 63rd minute of the game after he nodded home a flick on from second half substitute Manuel Onwu to silence the home support.

Madrid were scared into action and Karim Benzema restored their lead seven minutes later.

Jose Callejon secured all three points for Madrid in the dying seconds of the match.
