Unai Garcia sent Osasuna ahead with a header, poorly defended by Madrid, but the visitors soon found their footing.
Ramos found his footing - his studs into Ruben Garcia’s Achilles but somehow the defender was not punished, even by VAR after the referee missed it.
Off the hook, Isco levelled by drilling home a neat volley after Gareth Bale forced the ball his way, accidentally perhaps.
Osasuna fans were left raging when Ramos headed in after Casemiro headed a corner his way.
Lucas Vazquez and Luka Jovic struck in the final stages to seal a big win.
“In the end it was a very, very difficult game at a place it’s really hard to play at, they made it hard for us today but we did it,” said Zidane.
“We defended well and we controlled it well, we’re in a good moment and the players made chances to score, we got four at a difficult ground to take the three points.”
