Osasuna v Barcelona Odds : Punters fancy home side as touch of value

Osasuna will be hoping that lightning strikes for the second time this weekend at big odds of 16/1 with Ladbrokes, who also offer free bets on the game, as they look to replicate last season’s famous victory over Barcelona.

Back in February, they secured a 3-2 win over this weekend’s opponents and in the end, it was crucial in Barcelona’s quest for the title. It came at a difficult time for them and Madrid sensed the initiative, never letting go until 1st position was confirmed.

This was a fantastic result for Osasuna of course and one they will hope they can repeat. It helped them finish 7th in La Liga too, their best league position in many years, so they are aware how much of a lift it could give them.

In terms of their opening game of the campaign, they went down 2-0 to Deportivo with the hosts scoring twice in the second-half. This was far from ideal for them, but in front of their own fans they will be stronger.

As for Barcelona, they have hit the ground running already this season. With the extra determination of wanting to win their La Liga title back, they hammered Real Sociedad 5-1 on the opening day before beating Real Madrid 3-2 in the Super Cup.

Star man Lionel Messi already has three goals to his name too, so he has continued the sublime form of last season. The defeat to Osasuna back in February will be at the front of his and the rest of the Barcelona squad’s minds too, so expect them to be fully focused on Sunday.

They of course have the second-leg of the Super Cup in Madrid on Wednesday next week, so a comfortable win would be more than welcome for Barcelona. Most importantly though, they want three points to continue the perfect start under Tito Vilanova.

This one gets underway from 6pm on Sunday evening.
