First Half Struggles

In the first half, Barcelona and Osasuna were evenly matched, with both teams unable to create clear chances. Barcelona dominated possession, as usual, but suffered a significant blow when Ferran Torres was forced off early with a muscular injury.

Vitor Roque’s First Goal

Fortunate for Barcelona, they were able to find the opener in the second half, with Vitor Roque scoring his first goal for the club. Joao Cancelo’s excellent cross was headed home by the Brazilian teenager, who had only just entered the match before scoring.

Red Card for Osasuna

After Vitor Roque’s goal, Osasuna’s Unai Garcia was sent off for a second yellow card. Despite this advantage, Barcelona was unable to add to their total, but it didn’t matter as they secured a 1-0 victory until full time. This win brings Barcelona eight points behind Girona at the top of the La Liga table.
