On Saturday, starting at 9:00 p.m., Osasuna and Barcelona will meet at El Sadar, behind closed doors, in a match corresponding to the 26th day of LaLiga Santander.
Barcelona comes to the meeting with morale through the roof and also very worn, after the super effort made on Wednesday in the comeback against Sevilla. Koeman’s men are aware that a victory would put a lot of pressure on the leader, Atlético de Madrid, who will face Real Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday.
The Dutch coach will not be able to count on Gerard Piqué, the author of the goal of the miracle, since he sprained himself in the Cup match. If he wants to maintain his 5-3-2 scheme, which is giving him such good results, he will have to resort Araújo to lead the defense, since Umtiti is not up for many trots. Everything will depend on the physical condition of the Uruguayan.
Osasuna, for his part, will fight to maintain his great dynamic of results, which has taken him from the relegation zone to the quiet part of the classification. Those from Arrasate are working hard on the matches and they will be a very difficult rival for the Blaugranas.
