Real Madrid picked up a solid advantage over Osasuna as they claimed a 2-0 win in the Copa del Rey round of 16 first leg at the Bernabeu on Thursday evening.

Karim Benzema headed home Luca Modric's cross from close range in the 18th minute for the opener before Jese added the second just before the hour mark.

The 20-year-old prodded the ball home moments after Cristiano Ronaldo missed a sitter to give his side a comfortable cushion ahead of the second leg on January 15.

In Thursday's other games, Real Sociedad drew 0-0 against Villarreal while Rayo Vallecano also played out a goalless draw at home to Levante.
