FULL TIME: Osasuna 0-3 Barcelona.
Barcelona cut the gap to 3 points on league leaders, Real Madrid but the Los Blancos have a game in hand. They face Deportivo tonight and you can follow that match here.
90 +2' Messi just dribbles and dribbles and dribbles past the Osasuna players and shoots towards the left side of the goalkeeper to make it 3-0 to Barcelona. They just could not manage to keep him quite in the end. What a brilliant goal!
THREE ADDED MINUTES!
87' Osasuna have given up. They are not making any effort to get a goal now. They are just trying not to concede anymore now.
BOOKING! Torres Morales is on the books now.
85' Clerc goes down after going over awkwardly on his ankle following a collision with Rafinha. Looks fine to continue but it will not be easy for him to run as much as he could now.
83' BRILLIANT SAVE! Ter Stegen does well to keep the clean sheet intact as Berenguer's shot is pushed over the bar. The Osasuna winger did well to get past Alba before trying to ship the past the Barca goalkeeper, who was alert enough to save it.
80' ANOTHER CHANCE FOR LEON! Sergio Leon cuts back and shoots with his left foot from the right-hand side. The show is but right into Ter Stegen's throat.
77' Andre Gomes is off for Rafinha.
74' It's going to be very difficult for Osasuna now. Their only good chance of the game was that chip by Leon. Apart from him, nobody else has been performing well up front. If he had a good partner, things might have been different in this match.
72' Messi with a delicate touch to guide the ball home from just inside the 6 yard box. Nauzet has no chance this time as it bounces above him and there is no defender in a position to clear it.
Osasuna 0-2 Barcelona
70' Sergio Leon is looking dangerous on the counter, and will surely punish the Catalan club if they get another one quick.
68' Messi manages to shoot from the edge of the box but Nauzet pushes the ball around the post for a corner. The resulting corner is a short one and is cleared away by Osasuna players with ease.
66' Nauzet is quickly out to gather up the loose ball which Alba put into the box. Messi set up the left back with a brilliant ball but the end product has been horrible today from Barcelona.
Arda Turan comes off for Denis Suarez.
Keep sending in your comments, questions and predictions to @falsewinger and I'll keep adding them here.
61' Osasuna try to get back into the game straight away as Leon is put through clear on goal.. The striker appeals for a foul inside the penalty box but the offside flag was already up. Would have been interesting if the striker was not miles offside.
59' Finally! Luis Suarez has put Barcelona ahead with a simple tap-in from 4 yards out. Messi with a brilliant through ball to Alba who squares it to the unmarked Luis Suarez inside the 6 yard box. The striker makes no mistake and it's 1-0 to Barcelona.
GOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!! LUIS SUAREZ!!!!
57' Looks like the substitutes will be making their way on to the pitch soon. Both managers have asked their players to warm up.
53' Sergio Leon is doing all he can to get a goal today but just not getting enough support up front!! Get's clear again but this timer Umtiti does well to get the ball from him and clear it away.
51' Ivan Marquez in the next one to go into the referee's book for a foul on Leo Messi.
OHHHH MYYYY GOOOOD!
Sergio Leon gets past Umtiti at the halfway line with ease and is clear on goal. Pique somehow closes in on him and knowing that he's got no chance of getting past the Spaniard, the striker looks up and checks if he can take a shot. Spotting Ter Stegen off the line, he attempts an ambitious chip but it comes off the crossbar. The Barcelona keeper had NO CHANCE of saving that!
46' Is this actually Barcelona or are these some others players cloned? A throw-in from the left wing into the Barcelona box pitched 3 times before Umtiti cleared it! Somehow, no Osasuna player tried to score at the time! WHAT IS HAPPENING!
KICK OFF! 2nd half is underway at the Estadio El Sadar.
Can we please have a goal?
HALF TIME: Osasuna 0-0 Barcelona
How this game is still goalless, I have no idea.
45' Sergio Leon gets Riera through on goal but there's too much on the pass and it goes out for a goal-kick. That was a rare chance for Osasuna and they should have made it count.
44' One added minute is expected at the end of the half and it's going to be an exciting one. As I type, Messi misses another chance! This time it's Jordi alba who puts the Argentine through on goal but he misses once again. Just not his his day.
42' ANOTHER CHANCE! ANOTHER MISS! Messi gets another chance to give Barcelona the lead but can't do anything to trouble the scoreboard.
40' Arda Turan welcomes Flaño back by throwing him to the ground while challenging for the ball. Ref thinks it's a fair challenge but the home crowd disagrees.
38' Update of Flaño: He's back on the pitch for Osasuna who look like will be the first team to score today. They are getting chances after chances on the counter and it's getting closer.
36' Entertaining match here. But just missing out on a goal. Osasuna's captain Flaño is helped off the field as I type.
My heart stopped for a moment there. Completely bottled it. What a chance that was for Osasuna— The Barca Network (@TheBarcaNetwork) December 10, 2016
34' ARDA TURAAAAAAANNN.....Nope. The Turkish international lines up a shot on goal but it's just rolled into the hands of Nauzet. His action was like he was going to get the ball through the net and out but it was such a bad mishit that even Loris Karius would have saved it.
30' HOW DID HE MISS THAT! De Las Cuevas controls a cross from Berenguer brilliantly and has a shot on goal. The ball rolls across the goal where is Oriel Riera is free to tap it in but he somehow misses the ball completely and it goes out for a goal kick!
