MADRID: Karim Benzema failed to convert a penalty as Real Madrid dropped its first points this La Liga season on Sunday after being held to a 1-1 draw at home by Osasuna, which had a man sent off late on. Vinicius Jr. gave the defending champion the lead just before half-time with a long-range shot, but the visitor equalised after the break through Kike Garcia, who scored with a brilliant header from the edge of the area that looped over the goalkeeper. Benzema fired his penalty off the bar and over in the 79th minute, after being fouled inside the area by defender Unai Garcia, who was shown a straight red card.

RESULTS: Real Madrid 1 (Vinicius Jr. 42) drew with Osasuna 1 (K Garcia 50); Mallorca 0 lost to Barcelona 1 (R Lewandowski 20)
