  • 88'
    Barca just running down the clock now with short passes in midfield.
  • 85'
    Barcelona continue to try and find more goals. Osasuna just want the game to end now, or have done for a while.
  • 83'
    Yellow Card Timor
  • 83'
    Yellow Card Damià
  • 82'
    Fantastic interception from Javier Mascherano as he slides to stop a pass that looked destined for Nino inside the box.
  • 80'
    What a way to respond after a week of criticism. A incredible performance from Barcelona.
  • 79'
    Assist Cesc Fàbregas
  • 79'
    Goal Messi
  • 78'
    Substitution Patxi Puñal Timor
  • 77'
    AWESOME FROM BARCELONA!!!! 8-0 and another goal for Lionel Messi! One touch football outside the box before the Argentinian maestro drives past three challenges into the box and slots the ball in the corner. This has been a joy to watch.
  • 76'
    Assist Cesc Fàbregas
  • 76'
    Goal David Villa
  • 75'
    7-0 to Barca! Such poor defending from Osasuna as they allow Fabregas to wriggle through their defence and set up David Villa for a tap in.
  • 74'
    Yellow Card Ibrahima
  • 72'
    Dani Alves is being awarded so much room down the right hand side but his team mates have failed to pick him out on a couple of occasions.
  • 70'
    HUUUUUUUUUUY! David Villa goes so close for Barca, it was vintage Villa as he cuts inside and goes for that far corner but it goes just over the crossbar by inches.
  • 68'
    Delightful play from David Villa as the Spaniard makes a reverse pass in midfield that takes out three Osasuna players.
  • 66'
    GOOOOOOOOAL FOR OSASUNA! WAIT, NO! It is given as offside as Nino's shot deflects off Ibrahima and loops over Valdes. Good decision.
  • 64'
    Nino squanders a fantastic chance for Osasuna! The forward found himself one on one with Valdes at a very tight angle. Ibrahima is screaming for a pass in the centre but the Spaniard misses a shot to the right of the post!
  • 62'
    Substitution Raúl García Ibrahima
  • 62'
    Corner conceded by Busquets. Some rare time in the Barca half for the away side and they fail to make the most of it. Misplaced pass and its back to the hosts.
  • 61'
    Substitution Xavi Ibrahim Afellay
  • 60'
    Barca make their third and final change as Xavi is replaced by Ibrahim Afellay.
  • 58'
    Yellow Card Rubén
  • 58'
    HUUUUYYYYY! Tremendous effort from Dani Alves as the Brazilian half volleys at goal straight from a corner kick and his attempt goes a whisker by the right hand post!
  • 57'
    Assist Messi
  • 57'
    Goal Xavi
  • 56'
    Six nil to Barcelona! Truly wonderful play again as Messi clips a pass over the top of the Osasuna defence for Xavi who delightfully lifts the ball over Fernandez..
  • 54'
    Substitution Carles Puyol Maxwell
  • 54'
    Another Barca change as Maxwell comes on to replace captain Carles Puyol. Excellent return for the Spaniard.
  • 52'
    Low key start to the match apart from Messi's chip. Barca are patiently building up play and Osasuna are camped in their own half.
  • 49'
    Barca clip the woodwork again! So unlucky from Messi as the Argentinian dinks the ball over Andres Fernandez from just inside the box but hits the top of the bar!
  • 47'
    Yellow Card Raúl García
  • 47'
    A change from either side at half time as Adriano replaces Abidal for Barcelona and Cejudo replaces Raitala for Osasuna.
  • 46'
    Substitution Jukka Raitala Álvaro Cejudo
  • 46'
    Substitution Éric Abidal Adriano
  • 46'
    The second half is underway in Camp Nou. The final result may depend on how much Barcelona take their foot off the gas in the second period. It is damage limitations for Osasuna in this half.
  • Half time in Barcelona. Osasuna finally get a bit of a rest as the players go in for the break. 5-0 to Barcelona. Subllime football. Join us in fifteen minutes for the second half!
  • 44'
    Yellow Card Roland Lamah
  • 43'
    Truly vintage performance for Barcelona in the first half. Every player has been superb but you do fear for Osasuna in the second half.
  • 41'
    Assist Cesc Fàbregas
  • 41'
    Goal Messi
  • 40'
    Assist David Villa
  • 40'
    Own Goal Roversio
  • 40'
    5-0 to Barcelona! This is incredible! Cesc Fabregas finds himself just outside the six yard box and instead of shooting, does a 'Cruyff turn', taking three defenders out of the game. The Spaniard then passes to Messi who slots the ball neatly into the corner! Fantastic.
  • 38'
    4-0 to Barcelona!! Ohhhh so unlucky Osasuna! David Villa goes through on goal and strikes the ball off Fernandez and it cannons off Roversio and into the goal!
  • 36'
    Yellow Card David Villa
  • 35'
    Barcelona are having fun in this game. It has been like an exhibition match so far for the home side.
  • 34'
    Assist Éric Abidal
  • 34'
    Goal David Villa
  • 33'
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL FOR BARCELONA!! The result looks beyond doubt now as Abidal slips a pass through to David Villa who expertly takes the ball round Andres Fernandez and passes home. Very poor defending from Osasuna, their defensive line was all over the place.
  • 30'
    Lionel Messi hits the post now!! Sensational play from Barcelona as Xavi picks out Dani Alves with a wonderful cross field pass for the Brazilian to whip a cross in for Messi who clips the inside of the post!
  • 28'
    The hosts are toying with Osasuna at the moment, they are playing the ball around at will and are creating chance after chance.
  • 26'
    Barcelona hit the bar! Messi picks out Abidal with a diagonal ball to the back post and the Frenchman heads against the woodwork!
  • 24'
    Fabregas should have scored! The Spaniard found himself through on goal and attempted to lift the ball over Fernandez but the Osasuna goalkeeper remained big to make the save.
  • 22'
    David Villa has been slightly wasteful in the first twenty minutes. A couple of lapses in concentration from the Spaniard has resulted in Barcelona surrendering possession.
  • 20'
    Barca just stamping their authority on the game at the moment with their short passing game.
  • 18'
    Fair play to Osasuna, despite the scoreline they continue to press Barcelona high up the park.
  • 16'
    Barcelona did score two very early goals last week against Real Sociedad and managed to squander that lead so Osasuna need to remain calm as they are still in this game.
  • 14'
    Messi very close to being through on goal there but the Argentinian just controlled the ball on his arm. Free kick to Osasuna.
  • 13'
    Assist Messi
  • 13'
    Goal Cesc Fàbregas
  • 12'
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL FOR BARCELONA!!! Cesc Fabregas scores a fantastic goal after exchanging a delightful one-two with Lionel Messi over the top of the Osasuna defence and then controlling a cracking volley with his weak foot into the corner! Sublime!
  • 9'
    Fernandez in the Osasuna goal has been busy in the opening ten minutes, as well as picking the ball out of his net he has pulled off a cracking save after Lionel Messi went on a magnificent run before striking at goal.
  • 7'
    Osasuna will be down heartened at conceding such an early goal especially after starting the match so brightly in the first couple of minutes. They will need to regroup quickly.
  • 5'
    Assist Daniel Alves
  • 5'
    Goal Messi
  • 4'
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL FOR BARCELONA!!!! Great goal from the hosts as Busquets picks out Dani Alves with pass over the top of the Osasuna defence for the Brazilian to cushion a header to the back post for Lionel Messi to slide home! 1-0!
  • 3'
    Bright start from Osasuna, pressuring the Barca defence and earning themselves a corner kick. The set piece eventually found its way to Nino on the left hand side who clipped the bar with a cross to the back post. Valdes looked shaky there!
  • 1'
    The match has kicked off in Barcelona, the home side will look to get back to winning ways whereas Osasuna will be looking to take advantage of an out of form Catalan side.
  • This is the starting XI of Osasuna: Andres Fernandez; Bertran, Roversi, Reuben, Raitala; Damia, Punal, Lolo, Lamah, Raul Garcia; Nino.
  • The teams are in and this is how Barcelona will be lining up tonight: Valdes; Alves, Puyol, Mascherano, Abidal; Busquets, Xavi, Thiago; Cesc, Messi, Villa.
  • Barcelona are coming off two consecutive games without a win which is certainly rare for Pep Guardiola's men. How will they respond?
