FC Barcelona take on Osasuna in the Spanish Primera Liga game on Wednesday night, 26th April 2017 at Camp Nou. Its a massive game for Barcelona who are coming into this game on the back of historic last minute win over arch rivals Real Madrid which put them back on top of the table and this Osasuna game give them the oppertunity to put pressure on Real Madrid who play later in the night against Deportivo away from home.

Osasuna were promoted to Spanish division 1 this season and they have found life difficult so far winning just 1 game off the opening 14 games which put them right down the bottom place. On paper Barcelona look a very solid side but their recent performances have been unpredictable to say the least. They go into the game on the back of 3 game winless streak and anything but a win will pretty much end their title challenge this season.
Team News & Lineups: Luis Enrique has been left frustrated by the front tio who never really hit the heights of last two seasons. Neymar is suspended while Suarez and Messi should start with Arda Turan upfront. Rakitic and Iniesta will keep their places in midfield alongside Sergio Busquets. Jordi Alba also returns in left back position and below is the possible starting lineups of both teams.
Match Predictions: Barcelona last won in La Liga back in 6 November 2016 when they took three points away from home against Sevilla. Since than they have been poor and this game give them oppertunity to get back their cutting edge. I am going with a comfortable win for Barcelona in this one and Messi to grab a couple of goals.
