Osasuna vs. Barcelona: Where to Watch La Liga, TV Channel, Live Stream, Team News and Odds

Barcelona will aim to make it back-to-back wins when it takes on Osasuna in Pamplona on Saturday.

The defending La Liga champions secured the first three points of the campaign last week, with a resounding 5-2 win over Real Betis on home turf.

Without the injured Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele, summer signing Antoine Griezmann stepped up in his competitive debut at the Nou Camp.

The Frenchman, who arrived from Atletico Madrid for $133 million, scored twice as Barcelona came from 1-0 down to win its first league game of the season.

Carles Perez scored his first senior goal for Barcelona, while Jordi Alba and Arturo Vidal also got on the scoresheet.

The result, however, was overshadowed by controversy surrounding Junior Firpo.

The defender made his debut for Barcelona after joining from Real Betis in the summer in a $20 million deal.

After the game, Barcelona's official Twitter account shared a picture of the defender waving and displaying all five fingers—a not-so-subtle nod to the five goals Barcelona had put past Real Betis.

. @FCBarcelona wish to sincerely apologise for any offence caused to Real Betis and their supporters regarding a tweet sent out on Sunday evening. No disrespect was intended, but we were wrong to publish it on a night that was very special for Junior.https://t.co/JyvRDw7cuQ

Needless to say, the joke fell flat and the five-time European Cup winners apologized shortly afterward.

Osasuna, meanwhile, is yet to concede a goal in its first season in La Liga for three years.

Los Rojillos beat Leganes 1-0 away in their first game of the season and drew 0-0 at home to Eibar last week.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Saturday.

Barcelona's campaign got off to a disappointing start with a 1-0 defeat in Bilbao against Athletic, courtesy of Aritz Aduriz's wonder goal.

The Blaugrana, however, bounced back in style last week, thrashing Real Betis 5-2 at home courtesy of Antoine Griezmann's first league goals for the club. The Frenchman netted twice, while Carles Perez, Jordi Alba and Arturo Vidal scored one each.

Osasuna began the season with a 1-0 win away at Leganes, before drawing 0-0 at home to Eibar last week.

Team news

Lionel Messi is still unavailable with a calf injury he picked up in the first training session of the season. The Argentine was expected to return against Real Betis but sat the game out, and will also miss Saturday's trip to Pamplona.

"There wasn't a positive feeling. He hasn't had a relapse of the injury," Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said after beating Betis.

"We already said that we wouldn't rush any player. What we wanted to avoid was a relapse."

Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele are out for two and four weeks respectively after suffering a calf strain and a hamstring injury in the opening game of the season.


According to Oddschecker, Barcelona is a 7/20 favorite to win on Saturday, while Osasuna is a 48/5 outsider and the draw is at 4/1.
