Real Madrid failed to return to the summit of the Spanish League table after dropping two points against Osasuna at Estadio El Sadar.
Los Blancos made attempts at goal through Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos but their efforts were ruled out for offsides.
Coach Zinedine Zidane’s men however remain second on the log behind Atletico Madrid who have played three games less this term.
Buth sides gave their best but the heavy downpour of snow frustrated their efforts and ensured nothing good comes out of those moves.
The visitors were poor in their display as they could fire a single shot on target in the first half despite fielding a strong squad in the game.
Zidane’s men came back for the second half with more purpose after the half-time pep talk with the manager as they saw their two goals disallowed.
Real Madrid’s first attempt at goal was in the 49th minute when Marco Asensio bent a curling shot towards Sergio Herrera’s goal post.
Karim Benzema did bundle home after Herrera brilliantly kept out his initial point-blank header, only for the offside flag to swiftly curtail the celebrations.
As it stands, Real are just one point behind city rivals Atletico while Barcelona thumped Granada 4-0 to close the gap on the two top teams.

The game was already looking like it would be decided with penalties but the North Londoners stepped up their game towards the end of the match.
