Barcelona vs Osasuna Preview
On Sunday Barcelona host Osasuna in the Camp Nou. These games are always exciting and we should be guaranteed to see goals in this one.
Barcelona will have one eye on Galatasaray as they get ready for this game. A 0-0 draw in their last outing vs the Turkish side will have caused a slight headache for Head Coach Xavi Hernández who would have wanted to take a lead to Turkey when his side go there on Thursday in the 2nd Leg of their Europa League tie.
Xavi knows his team cannot slip up here as the risk of dropping out of the top four is possible if the Blaugranes don’t pick up all three points. Barça are unbeaten in nine games in all competitions and are in fine form in the league. You can see Xavi is implementing his style in the way his team plays and the fans are enjoying it once again. Xavi will be hoping for a fast start and for the game to be won before halftime so that he can rest and rotate certain players for the visit to Turkey next week.
Osasuna see themselves 11th in the table and are having a relatively good season, partly down to their away form which has been decent. They have picked up some key wins on the road. In their last outing it was a great 1-0 home win over Villarreal though with Argentine striker Chimy Ávila getting the only goal.
Head Coach Jagoba Arrasate mastermined a win at the Camp Nou back in 2020 and will be hoping to do that again. He will know his side will have to be at their best to get something here. Los Rojillos did go to the Bernabéu earlier this season and got a point so anything is possible.

Barcelona vs Osasuna Predictions
Score Prediction: Barcelona 3-0 Osasuna
Barça are in fine form at the moment in the league and Head Coach Xavi will want a reaction from his players after a slightly disappointing goalless draw in the Europa League. Osasuna will fight tooth and nail to get something but Barcelona should have too much for the side from Pamplona.
