Going into the game devoid of the services of Ballon d'Or nominee Cristiano Ronaldo and resident central defender Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid suffered a further disadvantage when playmaker Kaka received his marching orders for a second yellow card on the 19th minute.
Los Blancos substitute Jose Maria Callejon could have nicked three points for Jose Mourinho's team had his effort not been ruled out for offside, but 19th-placed Osasuna were the side in the ascendency during the second-half and should feel let down by their inability to punish the La Liga champions.
Speaking to the club's official website after the game, Mourinho was surprisingly appeased by his team's efforts.
"I liked the team's attitude, I have no criticism," he said.
"Lots of players had great matches, like Albiol and Coentrao, who haven't played for a while and they performed very well in a very demanding match. I have no complaints about anyone in general. They have done what they were asked."
The Portuguese was also not of the opinion that the squad failed in their attempt to come away with victory because of the absence of Ronaldo.
"I never talk about the missing players. We have had players injured for a month or two and I've never talked about them," Mourinho stated.
"We also have players suspended and I have not used that as an excuse."
Real Madrid's upcoming domestic fixture will see them visit the Mestalla to play Valencia next Sunday.
