BAR vs OSN Dream11 : Osasuna look to continue their unbeaten run in gameweek 3 of La Liga when they square off against Barcelona at home today
A steady start for Osasuna is all set to be tested rigorously today when the side come up against their stringiest challenge till now in the opening exchanges of La Liga 2019-20 today. Playing at home, the yet to be beaten side will be facing off against Barcelona in a decisive match which will see their resolute and resilient defence come under severe pressure.
After winning their league opener with a 1-0 win over Leganes, Osasuna followed it up with a 0-0 draw against Eibar, a result which sees the side placed in seventh place with four points from their opening couple of encounters. The side have relied massively on their well disciplined and stellar defence to imbed in successful showings for them till now, a framework which has seen them register two cleansheets till now.
Elsewhere, their opponents on the day, current champions Barcelona finally registered their first win on the ongoing season with a 5-2 clean out of Real Betis. It was just the result the side were yearning for after being put down by Athletic Bilbao in the first match of the league, a stunning 1-0 result which saw the side come under massive flak.
BAR vs OSN Match Prediction
Despite suffering a spate of injuries at the moment, one which sees the side severely depleted in the attacking side of things, their hectic transfer window sees them having replacements who can stand tall among their opposition’s attacking force. Although Osasuna will be perched in their own side of the pitch for the majority of this encounter, looking to stall Barcelona for as long a period as possible, Barcelona should end up finding atleast the one extra goal to seal a win in this one.

BAR vs OSN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With two cleansheets on the bounce, Osasuna have had to thank their goal-keeper as such as their backline for the consummate success they have tasted defensively. In Ruben Martinez, the side have a goal-keeper bestowed with an incredible skill set to block shots, parrying away the toughest of shots with ease.
He’s going to be peppered today and come up against an absolute carnage, a script which should play out well for our Dream 11 side with him delivering a slew of save points today.
BAR vs OSN Dream11 Defenders
Having leaked in three goals in two matches till now, Barcelona have looked extremely unaware and caught out defensively. The side have crumbled and shook under pressure of attacking soirees, failing to keep their opposition away from their goal, something Osasuna’s attack will look to play on today.
However, this could just be the match Barcelona needed to rope in their first cleansheet with Osasuna having scored just one goal till now. This sees us bring in CB Charles Lenglet and Nelson Semedo from the side while we have gone ahead with Pervis Estupinan from the hosts with the leftback sublime value at just 7.5 credits.
BAR vs OSN Dream11 Midfielders
We have gotten in the two midfielders each form either side for this one, getting in Roberto Torres and CDM Oier Mate from Osasuna. Mate has been quissential for the side till now, screening the backline judiciously to ensure that nothing traverses past the centre of the park into his side’s ambit and will be pivotal if his side is to fare well today as well.
New signing Frenkie de Jong and Ansu Fati are our picks from Barcelona. Fati might start this one as a substitute but could get a goal when he comes on to play against a tiring Osasuna defence.
BAR vs OSN Dream11 Strikers
We are bringing in Barcelona’s goal scorers from the previous match over here with Antoine Griezmann’s two goals and Carles Perez’s one goal from the rightwing position seeing the duo being picked up by us. Elsewhere, the only player to score for Osasuna till now, their lone strike upfront, Ezequiel Avila enters our side as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Perez is our captain for this one while Griezmann is the vice-captain.
