  • FC Barcelona will Face Osasuna in their First Away Trip.
  • Barca will be looking to avenge last season defeat.

Lionel Messi against Osasuna

The defeat at Reyno de Navarra stadium in Pamplona kind of sealed our La Liga fate last season. Even though we recovered from that to take the League fight close, that effort took a lot from our players. So it's better to start the La Liga away Campaign at the same place where we really get owned up last season. The conditions there could be complete contrast from last season. Last season we played there in a Cold and Windy night, but most probably we will be playing on Sunday in a more hot conditions. But the state of the pitch could remain the same - something which resembles a dug up paddy field. Last season we lost the League title with our terrible away record. So this match will watched carefully by mot Cules and even their opponents to see how home sick we will be this season. The mood in the camp should be electric following FC Barcelona's victory over Real Madrid, mid week; eventhough there will be a bit of disappointment. And also a number of star players could be rested ahead of the return leg.

Tito Vilanova would have to figure out who all he want to give some rest ahead of the second leg clash against Real Madrid. Victor Valdes should be back at the goal. The defense should see Alves, Puyol, Mascherano and Alba. The midfield should see a fair bit of tweak. Xavi could be rested ahead of the clash against Real madrid. That means we could once see Iniesta, Cesc and Busquets in middle. Even Song is available but I doubt he will be starting, maybe he could feature as a substitute. Pedro should continue with his new found for along with Messi but instead of Sanchez it may be time to give Villa the start. This is all about revenge and also to get to a perfect start. It is going to be a big battle but I am going to bank on a 2-1 victory for us.
