Live on Skysports 1: Sat 19.00: Barcelona will be easing their foot off against Osasuna and may settle for a narrow victory in La Liga.
Barcelona are just 2/9 with William Hill to beat Osasuna, 1/8 in places, and come into the match after a demoralising Copa del Rey defeat and yet another El Clasico on the horizon, this time in the Champions League.
Barca looked tired on Wednesday night and while they should maintain their excellent home record, Osasuna 18/1 to grab a surprise victory (), they may do so in unglorious fashion.
Osasuna don’t tend to lose heavily on their travels and have actually grabbed a couple of wins of late and if you couple that with some possible team changes, Stan James’ 8/15 about a Barca victory by 2 goals or more does not appeal either.
A narrow victory does therefore, Paddy Power’s 3/1 about a victory by 1 goal for Barcelona is the way to go.
