Barcelona entertained Osasuna at the Nou Camp earlier tonight as they looked to earn a win in front of their home supporters. The Catalan giants made a bright start to the contest and got their noses ahead in the 14th minute courtesy of Ferran Torres’ successful penalty. Torres doubled Barca’s advantage just seven minutes later with a controlled finish. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put daylight between the two sides when he found the back of the net in the 27th minute as Xavi’s players went into the half-time break 3-0 up on the scoreline.

Riqui Puig came off the bench to net another goal for Barca in the 75th minute. The Catalan giants ended up cruising to a 4-0 win at home.

Let’s take a look at how each Barca player performed during the match against Osasuna.

GK: Marc-André ter Stegen – 7/10

The German keeper was tidy with his passing and made a few important saves at the back to keep his clean sheet intact.

RB: Dani Alves – 8/10

The Brazilian full-back performed his defensive duties well and engineered a handful of inviting chances for his teammates to score.

CB: Gerard Pique – 6.5/10

The Spaniard kept things solid inside his half but got replaced in the 61st minute.

CB: Eric Garcia – 7/10

He maintained a solid shape at the back and did enough to keep the Osasuna attackers at bay during the 90 minutes.

LB: Jordi Alba – 7/10

He made an important clearance during the game and was quite lively in the opposition half.

CM: Pedri – 7/10

Pedri orchestrated a few encouraging opportunities for others around him and offered decent cover for his teammates on the defensive end of the pitch.

CM: Sergio Busquets – 7.5/10

He anchored the midfield with conviction and set up a few decent chances for others around him.

CM: Gavi – 9/10

Gavi earned the ball a handful of times for his team and made multiple runs with the ball from midfield.

RW: Ousmane Dembele – 9.5/10

The French speedster caused all kinds of problems for the Osasuna defenders using his pace and dribbling ability. He has got two assists to show for his efforts.

ST: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 7.5/10

The ex-Arsenal striker was a constant menace inside the opponent’s penalty box and deserves credit for getting his name on the scoresheet in the 27th minute.

LW: Ferran Torres – 8/10

The Spanish sensation kept his composure to convert his penalty early in the game and went on to score again in the 21st minute. However, he had a quiet second half.

Substitutes:

CB: Clement Lenglet – 6/10

He kept things solid at the back.

ST: Memphis Depay – 6/10

Depay was a threat going forward.

CM: Riqui Puig – 7.5/10

He came off the bench and scored Barca’s fourth goal.

LB: Oscar Mingueza – 6/10

Mingueza did well to see out the win with the clean sheet intact.

ST: Martin Braithwaite – 6/10

He hardly got a sniff at goal.
