Barcelona vs Osasuna LaLiga Prediction by LeagueLane

Barcelona vs Osasuna
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 13 March 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou.

Barca are currently one of the best teams in the Spanish top flight. After a period of struggle, they seem to have regained their old form under manager Xavi Hernandez.

As of now, they are placed third in the table, and they are going after the second-placed Sevilla, who have a lead of seven points. However, the Catalans do have a fixture in hand.

Meanwhile, Osasuna are one of the weakest teams in the competition at the moment. They are going through an inconsistent stretch of results, and are letting in goals in plenty.

And they have been quite the mess as well in road games this season.

Judging these observations, as well as past h2h superiority of Xavi’s men, expect a compelling win for them this Sunday.

Barcelona vs Osasuna Prediction & Analysis

The Catalans recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Elche. They are also on a four-game winning streak, and they had slotted in four or more goals in three of their past four fixtures.

They have also lost just thrice at home this season in all competitions – and two of these defeats had come against Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid.

On the other hand, Osasuna did win 1-0 at home the past game week, against Villarreal. But they were winless in 16 of their past 22 overall fixtures, and they had also lost four of their preceding six road trips.

Moreover, they have also struggled quite a lot in h2h clashes over the years.

For the reasons, expect a win for Barcelona this Sunday.
