FULL-TIME, Barcelona 1-0 Osasuna: Barça played very well against a parked bus and needed to show great patience and poise, but Alba’s late game-winner puts the home team 14 clear at the top of the table for at least a couple of hours to essentially seal the title. A strong performance, a dramatic finish, and a crucial win against an Osasuna side that gave Barça all they could handle. Well done, boys!

85’ GOAL!!!!!!! Barcelona 1-0 Osasuna (Alba): BARÇA FINALLY BREAK THE DEADLOCK!!! Lewandowski receives the ball inside the box and crosses it to Frenkie De Jong, who shows remarkable poise to head it towards the direction of Jordi Alba and the left-back fires it home on the volley!

79’ GOAL DISALLOWED: Robert Lewandowski finally breaks the deadlock after a scramble in the box, but the goal is called off for a very narrow offside on Ferran Torres in the buildup.

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: Back underway at Camp Nou!

HALFTIME, Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: Barça had to face a parked bus for the entire period, but were patient with possession and created some very good chances that they couldn’t finish. Osasuna will defend even deeper in the second half, so Barça will need to be even more incisive in attack to find the winning goals in the final period.

36’ INJURY: After appearing to tweak his groin early in the first half, Gavi cannot continue and is replaced by Ansu Fati with 10 minutes to go in the half.

27’ RED CARD! Osasuna are down to 10 men as Frenkie De Jong plays Pedri through on goal and Jorge Herrando brings him down, denying a clear goalscoring opportunity and receiving a straight red card. No debate or controversy with this one.

KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: And we're underway at Camp Nou!

WELCOME TO THE SPOTIFY CAMP NOU!!!

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
