FULL-TIME, Barcelona 2-0 Osasuna: Barça are through to the Final, but it wasn’t easy. Osasuna know how to cause Barça problems, and it took until the very end for the Catalans to clinch the win. But they got the job done, and have moved on to the title game against Real Madrid in what should be a fantastic El Clásico on Sunday.


90+3’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 2-0 Osasuna (Yamal): BARÇA DOUBLE THE LEAD!!! The Catalans confirm the win and a spot in the final on the counter as João Félix goes on an amazing solo run finds Lamine Yamal who hits the bottom corner and seals the victory!


59’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 1-0 Osasuna (Lewandowski): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! Ilkay Gündogan plays a spectacular through ball to find Robert Lewandowski inside the box and the striker fires it home! There was a VAR check for a potential foul in the buildup by Andreas Christensen, but the goal is cleared and Barça are ahead at the hour mark!


SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: Back underway in Riyadh!


HALFTIME, Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: Barça created and missed a couple of big chances early but couldn’t maintain the momentum and mostly struggled to attack Osasuna’s well-organized back five. The away team didn’t suffer much and is still alive going into the break, which was certainly their plan for the first half.


42’ INJURY: Raphinha is forced to leave early with what appears to be a hamstring injury and is replaced by Lamine Yamal just before halftime.


KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: And we’re underway in Riyadh!


WELCOME TO THE AL-AWWAL PARK STADIUM!!! This beautiful venue in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is the site of 2024 Spanish Super Cup and the second semi-final between last season’s Copa del Rey runners-up Osasuna and defending La Liga champions Barcelona, who come into this one looking to set up another El Clásico in Sunday’s title game as they looking to defend their crown. But it won’t be easy against an Osasuna side that rarely gets the chance to play for a trophy and a team that has caused Barça plenty of problems recently. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!

Matchday Thread Rules
