Although Barcelona is a gibberish, Koeman’s team once again supports the entity. An injection of morale was to turn the tie of the Cup semifinals against Sevilla – for which he will fight not to go blank again -, now focused on the league persecution of Atlético, which is fighting in the derby with Madrid and which is five points ahead with one game less. And on the horizon is PSG, who took a resounding 1-4 from Camp Nou in the Champions League. But now it is Barça’s turn for Osasuna, a team that has recorded three wins in the last four games to breathe easy at the equator of the table. The accumulation of minutes and the demands of playing five extensions so far this year have taken their toll on Barça, now the central Piqué and Araujo are injured, as well as Sergi Roberto, Coutinho and Ansu Fati. Osasuna is not much more comfortable, Jagoba Arrasate pending from the Brasanac PCR and with the certain absences of Roncaglia, Rubén Martínez, Iñaki Álvarez and Chimy Ávila.
Shrouded in the nebula of the Barçagate and in a day of reflection for the members to choose the new president among the three possible candidates, Koeman’s team seeks to stabilize the club with the ball in play. Follow the game live:
