Barcelona’s La Liga aspirations are out of their hands as they host Osasuna at Camp Nou on Thursday. The Catalans have been stuttering in front of goal, can they turn it around against Osasuna?

Barcelona Form


Barcelona are four points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid with two matches remaining. Quique Setién’s side have given up the lead and need Los Blancos to slip up in a major fashion.

The Catalans surrendered the lead with three draws in four matches. They bounced back with a 4-1 win at Villarreal and won 1-0 at home against Espanyol.

Their last match was a 1-0 win at Real Valladolid thanks to an early Arturo Vidal strike. Barcelona’s attack continues to struggle after registering under 1.02 expected goals in their las two matches.

Barcelona Team News


Winger Ousmane Dembélé and striker Antoine Griezmann are injured. Centre-back Samuel Umtiti and midfielder Frenkie de Jong are doubtful.

Teenage attacker Ansu Fati returns from suspension.

Enric Gallego equalised in the first half and substitute José Arnáiz scored the winner in the 91st minute.

Barcelona vs Osasuna Match Up


Barcelona’s attack has been poor by their high standards in recent weeks. The absence of Ousmane Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann reduced their options here.

Osasuna have nothing to lose here having secured safety. This is a free hit, they could play with freedom which might leave them open at the back.
