Barcelona will be looking to bounce back from their 3-2 defeat to Real Sociedad when they take on Osasuna. The Blaugranas blew a two-goal lead in that game, but are still eight points clear at the top of La Liga. There are no new injury issues for Tito Vilanova, while David Timor will watch from the sidelines for Los Rojilos.
Barcelona forward Lionel Messi pulled out of training on Friday with a muscle strain but is nevertheless expected to feature in the Primera Division encounter against Osasuna.
Defender Gerard Pique is suspended, while assistant coach Jordi Roura could opt to rotate his squad for the Camp Nou clash with one eye on Wednesday's Copa Del Rey semi-final first leg against Real Madrid.
Osasuna boss Jose Luis Mendilibar may hand a debut to midfielder Francisco Silva, who was signed from Chilean side Universidad Catolica earlier this week. Asier Riesgo, David Timor, and Sisi are all unavailable through injury, while left-back Damia serves a one-match ban.
Lolo and Miguel Flano have four yellow cards and are running the risk of suspension. Los Rojilos have lost on their last four visits to Camp Nou at an aggregate score of 0-16.
Barcelona: Valdés, Alves, Adriano, Pique, Puyol; Mascherano, Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi; Sanchez
Osasuna: Riesgo, Ruben, Echaide, Lolo, Bertran; Annan, Cejudo, Nano, Torres; Nino, Manuel
