Barcelona vs Osasuna Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Barcelona are aiming for an improvement in their fortunes in LaLiga when they host Osasuna at Camp Nou on Sunday.

The visitors to Catalonia this weekend are an Osasuna side who recorded a 2-1 win when they last played at Camp Nou in July, a result which ended the Catalans’ title hopes.

Prior to their visit to the Camp Nou this summer, Osasuna had an awful record in this fixture, losing 7-1, 7-0, 5-1 and 8-0 in their previous four attempts.

The side from Pamplona are offered at 10/1 (11.00) with bet365 while Barca can be backed at 1/4 (1.25) with the draw at 5/1 (6.00).

The hosts have a number of players missing with Gerard Pique, Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto, Samuel Umtiti and Ronaldo Araujo all out injured, whilst Sergio Busquets is also a doubt after missing the last two games.

Osasuna meanwhile also have plenty of absentees with defender David Garcia joining strikers Chimy Avila, Brandon Thomas and Adrian Lopez on the sidelines. Jonathan Calleri is a doubt with a knee problem.

There are plenty of question marks surrounding this Barcelona side, yet if they could have hand-picked a fixture for them to gain some confidence it might have been this one.

Osasuna have been on the end of some enormous defeats in recent years at Camp Nou and they will be wary of a Barca team that have a point to prove.

Furthermore, Jagoba Arrasate’s men have not scored an away goal since early September and their injury problems in attack just further hinder thechances of another shock.

Barcelona have failed to win twice at home this season but those clashes were against Real Madrid and Sevilla, with the visitors on Sunday not the same calibreof opponent.

There should be plenty of interest in backing the hosts to win and rack up the goals in the process, something which they have had no problem in doing against Osasuna in the past.

Barca to win and over 3.5 goals in the game is priced at 6/5 (2.20) and has paid out in both of the Catalans’ home wins in La Liga this season.
