Barcelona played host to struggling Osasuna on Sunday night, and the game was nothing short of sublime. Both clubs showed moments of brilliance, but it was yet again the referee that will be in the headlines.
Barcelona took an early lead through Lionel Messi only to see Osasuna equalize with a rocket of a shot. But with amazing form, and some help from the referee, Barcelona was able to take control and finish the game with a score of 5-1.
This win comes off of Barcelona’s worst week this season, which included their first loss in La Liga. It was important for La Blaugrana to rebound, but also to prepare for the upcoming match with Real Madrid.
With the phenomenal game behind us, let’s look at what we learned through Barcelona’s big win at the Camp Nou.
