FULL-TIME, Barcelona 1-0 Osasuna: Barça struggled all night and were under pressure until the end against the 10 men of Osasuna, but the three points are theirs and they really needed them. Vitor Roque won the game off the bench, and the Tigrinho has officially arrived.


79’ GOAL DISALLOWED: Robert Lewandowski scores a classic Lewandowski goal on the counter to double Barça’s lead, but the offside flag goes up and the goal is ruled out.


67’ RED CARD! Osasuna are down to 10 men as captain unai García receives his second yellow for a foul on Vitor Roque and is shown a red card.


63’ GOAL!!!! Barcelona 1-0 Osasuna (Roque): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! Vitor Roque scores his first goal for Barcelona just 90 seconds into his substitute appearance as the Brazilian heads João Cancelo’s cross into the back of the net to put the home team in front!!!


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


HALFTIME, Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: Osasuna parked the bus and Barça had all of the ball but the home team only managed to create a couple of half-chances on crosses and set pieces, which means we are all square at the break after a boring half.


7’ SUBSTITUTION: Yet another injury for Barcelona as Ferran Torres leaves the pitch in tears after an apparent hamstring injury and is replaced by Fermín López.


KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Osasuna: And we’re underway at Montjuïc!


WELCOME TO THE MONTJUÏC OLYMPIC STADIUM!!! The beautiful temporary home of the world’s greatest club in the capital of Catalonia is the site of Barcelona’s next La Liga match as the Blaugrana welcome Osasuna in a rematch of the Spanish Super Cup semi-final earlier this month. Barça come into this one needing three points after a devastating loss that ended their title hopes, but there’s still much to fight for in the league and every win counts in the race for the Top 4. Osasuna always make things tough for Barça, and will be motivated to get some revenge after the loss in Saudi Arabia and take advatage of the home team’s poor run of form. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!

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.
