Barcelona plays host to Osasuna from Camp Nou in La Liga soccer action on Thursday afternoon.

Barcelona comes into this match in 2nd place on 79 points with a record of 24 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses following a 3rd straight win in the form of a 1-0 win over Valladolid last time out. In the win over Valladolid, Arturo Vidal gave Barcelona the lead just 15 minutes into the game and that ended up being all that Barcelona would need as they’d finish the match with 65% possession, holding Valladolid to 4 shots on goal. Lionel Messi leads Barcelona with team-highs of 22 goals and 20 assists while Luis Suarez has 15 goals and 8 assists this season. Marc-Andre Ter-Stegen is Barcelona’s #1 goalkeeper, conceding 0.89 goals per 90 minutes with 14 clean sheets in 35 league appearances this season.

Osasuna on the other hand, sits in 11th place on 48 points with a record of 12 wins, 12 draws and 12 losses following a 2-1 win over Celta Vigo in their last match. In the win over Vigo, Osasuna fell behind in the 10th minute but Enric would get Osasuna back on level terms in the 23rd minute of play. The tie would hold up into the second half and we looked headed for a score draw before Arnaiz Diaz gave Osasuna the lead in the first minute of second half stoppage time. Celta would be left scrambling, looking for a goal that would never come. Chimy Avila leads Osasuna in scoring with 9 goals while Ruben Garcia has 8 goals and Roberto Torres has 6 goals with a team-high 7 assists this season.

I’d like to give Osasuna a shot here at mammoth plus money as Barcelona’s stumbled here and there. However, a lot of those stumbles have come on the road while Barcelona’s picked up 16 wins and 2 draws in 18 home matches this season. Osasuna is pretty much locked in and are just playing out the string, so I expect a full performance from Barca here. The price tag and even the -2 handicap is a lot, so I’ll side with Barcelona to win and over 3.5 goals as I could see this being a 3-1 or even a 4-0 result for the hosts.
