The hosts are in excellent form and should be able to cause the Blaugrana plenty of problems in their compact, noisy stadium

Barcelona travel to Osasuna on Tuesday evening with Xavi Hernandez's men knowing a win will guarantee they go into the World Cup break top of La Liga.

The Blaugrana are currently two points ahead of rivals Real Madrid who play on Thursday, although Barca are going to be in for a tough time against an in-form Osasuna side.

Los Rojillos have taken 10 points from their last four matches and a win on Tuesday night would see them move up to third in the table.

Jagoba Arrasate's men have won five of their seven home games this term and are priced at a healthy looking 25/4 (5.75) with bet365 to claim another victory.

Barca meanwhile are offered at 53/100 (1.53) with the draw available at 16/5 (4.20).

Osasuna vs Barcelona first goal scorer odds

Robert Lewandowski leads the first goal scorer market with La Liga's top scorer priced at 11/4 (3.75) to break the deadlock in Pamplona.

Ansu Fati meanwhile is available at 11/2 (6.50) with Ferran Torres and Ousmane Dembele both offered at 7/1 (8.00).

For the hosts, their top scorer this season Chimy Avila can be backed at 17/2 (9.50) and the Argentine is in strong form, scoring twice in the weekend win at Celta Vigo.

Osasuna vs Barcelona preview

This is one of the toughest away games of the season for Barcelona, with Osasuna's El Sadar ground an imposing and intimidating place.

Los Rojillos have made their stadium into a fortress this season and in front of a packed house against a Barca team full of players heading to the World Cup there is every chance the hosts can pull off a shock.

Osasuna's intense aggressive style could unsettle the Catalans, and this fixture last season ended in a 2-2 draw.

Indeed Barca have only won three of their last six games against the side from the region of Navarre and backing the hosts to cause Xavi's men more problems should appeal.

Osasuna vs Barcelona tips and predictions

The price of 25/4 (5.75) for the hosts to win could be attractive, while backing them with a +1.25 Asian handicap at 7/10 (1.70) should strongly appeal.

This bet pays out in full if Osasuna win or draw, while providing a half win if they lose by one goal.
