Introduction to the article:
The upcoming Spanish Supercup final between Barcelona and Osasuna is set to determine the opponent for Real Madrid in the next big match. Both teams are facing some key player absences due to injuries, and both are seeking to put on strong performances despite their recent winning streaks.

Key Players Absent for Barcelona and Osasuna

Both Barcelona and Osasuna will be missing key players ahead of the Spanish Supercup final. Players such as Chimy Avila, Nacho Vidal, Unai Garcia, Gavi, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Joao Cancelo, Marcos Alonso, and Inigo Martinez are set to be absent, while there is hope for Pedri’s potential appearance in the match.

Predictions and Lineup Expectations

Xavi Hernandez has expressed that Joao Felix could play an important role, but different sources predict that he may start on the bench. Sergi Roberto is expected to be selected in midfield, and without Cancelo, Jules Kounde could return to right-back.

Tactics and Strategies for the Match

It is anticipated that Osasuna will focus on filling their side with midfielders and pursuing more width with Ruben Pena and Ruben Garcia, as they look to challenge a struggling Barcelona. Their previous match against Barcelona ended in a 2-1 victory, and their biggest challenge will be deciding how aggressive to be against the Blaugrana.
