Barcelona have done what they needed to do tonight and boy haven't they done it in style?
The Catalan giants took an early lead through Messi, who burst through on goal and chipped Sirigu. Andre Gomes then scored a rare goal with a thumping volley to give Barca a 2-0 lead going into half-time. Osasuna came out looking to claw their way back into the game and so they did when Roberto Torres' free-kick found its way into the back of Barcelona's net.
It was all Barcelona thereafter as Gomes and Messi scored in quick succession before Paco Alcacer also joined the party. The Blaugrana were awarded a penalty after Denis Suarez went down inside the box under challenge from Fran Merida and JAVIER MASCHERANO stepped up to score his FIRST-EVER GOAL for Barcelona. 
Luis Enrique's side scored four goals in the space of 10 minutes to kill off the tie before Alcacer also got his second of the night in the 86th minute of the game.
...
FULL-TIME: PEEP PEEP PEEP! Barcelona 7-1 Osasuna
...
90+2' Barcelona are happy to wound down the clock and they have done so successfully.
...
2 minutes of added time.
...
90' Rakitic takes a shot from distance and it takes a nasty deflection and Sirigu has to dive to keep the ball out.
...
This is an absolute rout if there ever was one.  The Spaniard breaks through the middle and rounds off Sirigu before slotting the ball into an empty net. Osasuna have been humiliated here.
...
86' GOOOAAAALLLLL!!! Alcacer scores his second to make it 7-1!
...
Barcelona are looking to see off the game now. They are done scoring for the night, or so it seems. IS there another late barrage of goals in store?
...
81' Kodro goes on a run down the left, holding off Mascherano with one hand. The Osasuna man beats the Argentine with his pace but the veteran recovers and sends the ball out.
...
79' Causic comes on to take the place of Merida. That's all the 3 substitutions done by the away side.
...
Andre Gomes, who has received stick for his below-par performances since his move to Camp Nou in the summer has come good tonight with two goals to his name.
...
Stat Attack: Barcelona have now scored 100 goals in La Liga this season. 
...
15 minutes left in the game and Barcelona are cruising here. They have done their job, almost to perfection, and it is now down to Real Madrid to win their game to stay ahead of the Catalan giants.
...
Osasuna look distraught here. They started the second half brightly and even pulled one back courtesy of the free-kick through Torres but they seemed to have given up after that 10-minute onslaught by Barcelona.
...
73' Substitution: Kodro comes on in place of Pedro Leon.
...
72' Substitution: Olavide comes on to replace Jaime Romero.
...
Barcelona have just killed the game in a 10-minute span, where they have scored 4 goals. 
...
67' Javier Mascherano steps up and blasts the penalty past Sirigu, who jumps the other way. THAT IS MASCHERANO's FIRST EVER GOAL FOR BARCELONA! FIRST EVER! Can you believe that?
...
67' PENALTY TO BARCELONA after Denis Suarez is fouled by Fran Merida.
...
This is all way too easy for Barcelona. Arda Turan chips the ball into the box and Mascherano and Alcacer are there, the latter takes hold of the ball and lifts it over the keeper to make it 5-1.
...
64' GOAAALLL!! Alcacer makes it 5-1!
...
63' Substitution: Carles Alena comes on to replace Messi.
...
Mascherano plays the ball to Messi, who is some 40 yards from goal. The Argentine darts towards the Osasuna goal and surprisingly the away side decide to give him all the space, he runs and reaches the edge of the box, cuts away and with two Osasuna defenders diving, Messi just places it into the left corner past the keeper.
...
61' GOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!! Messi scores his second of the night. 4-1!
...
60' Barcelona's frail defence was put to the sword early in the half but that goal should be enough for the home side.
...
Rakitic swings in another corner and Pique chests it down before hitting a left-footed shot, which ricochets off the post and falls to Gomes, who buries it into the back of the net. Game over?
...
57' GOOAAALLLL!!! Andre Gomes scores again, to make it 3-1!
...
57' Rakitic swings in a corner and Pique connects with it but Mondragon is there to clear it, almost off the line.
...
55' Barcelona have dominated possession but they just haven't been clinical enough.
Rakitic darts into the box and is shoved off the ball by Mondragon, Barcelona players appeal for a penalty and the referee looks at his assistant before pointing for a goal-kick. THAT WAS CLOSE!
...
52' Ter Stegen saves to keep his side ahead. De las Cuevas curls a ball into the box and it falls to Romero down the left, the Osasuna forward connects his laces with it and it is travelling at speed towards the back of Ter Stegen's goal but the German palms it away. Alarm bells ringing for Barcelona.
...
50' Sirigu saves it off the line. A ball is curled into the box by Gomes from the left and Mascherano is there to head it towards goal, it almost looks like the Argentine will finally score his first goal for Barcelona but Sirigu is there to deny him.
...
The ball was 25 yards from goal and Roberto Torres stands over it, he curls it over the wall and into the top left corner with Ter Stegen caught wrong-footed. Is there a comeback on the cards?
...
48' GOAAALL!!! Torres scores a brilliant free-kick to make it 2-1.
...
47' Leon darts towards the Barcelona box and he is hacked down by Busquets. They have a free-kick in a dangerous position.
...
No half-time changes for either side.
...
46' And we are underway in the second half at the Camp Nou.
...
The players are making their way back onto the pitch. We are nearing the restart.
...
Stat Attack: The opener was Lionel Messi's 15th goal against Osasuna.
...
Barcelona have a 3-point lead over Real Madrid as of now. The Santiago Bernabeu outfit take on Deportivo la Coruna in an hour, can they get the 3-points and stay on level terms with the Catalans?
