Tip Reasoning

  • Osasuna have failed to score in five of their last six La Liga fixtures
  • Barcelona have not lost away to Osasuna since February 2012
  • Barcelona have kept clean sheets in two of their three league matches since Xavi took charge

Barca demanding a response

A harrowing 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night means Barcelona will be playing Europa League football after Christmas and highlighted how tough a task new boss Xavi faces.

Their away form has been pretty poor this year, winning just once in six outings in La Liga. However, that victory came since the change of manager, 3-1 at Villarreal a fortnight ago.

They have also been tough to beat, conceding just eight goals, while a third of the six clean sheets they have kept this season have come since Xavi’s arrival.

Osasuna in a rut

Barca face an Osasuna side who are seriously struggling for form, with their only win in their last eight outings coming against minnows San Agustin de Guadalix in the Copa Del Rey.

They have won just once in eight home games in La Liga, failing to score on three occasions, while they have also not managed to score in five of their last six league fixtures.

Only two points separate these two sides in the table, but that is largely down to the away form of Jagoba Arrasate’s side, with four of their five victories coming on the road.

Despite Barcelona’s poor record on their travels this year, they are well capable of winning this game and keeping a clean sheet in the process. I predict they will win 2-0.
