Barcelona v Osasuna - as it happened

Join us at Camp Nou for Barcelona v Osasuna!

FT: Barcelona can be more than happy with a 4-0 result today. Great teamwork and chemistry from the players meant that the result was never really in doubt, it was just a matter of by how many!
+2: Herrera makes a fantastic save from a Messi FK that was on target and full of power. Fantastic goalkeeping there!
Trincao just puts it wide from a tight angle but nobody made the run for the cross! Dembele could have tapped that in if he'd moved for it.
Griezmann makes a half-pitch sprint down the wing on the 86th after playing all game! He didn't get to the ball but it shows his fitness.
Herrera comes way out and Messi almost beat him to the ball! He got there first though and killed the attack. It was a close cut thing!
Barcelona are motivated again and look like they want to make it at least 5! Great performance from them today.
Trincao brought down in his own half after a piercing run down the wing. Barcelona are happy to slow down the play for a while it seems.
Trincao puts a nice ball through to Messi but Herrera read the game well and came out to clear it.
Messi makes a nice tribute to Maradona with a number 10 Newells Old Boys shirt. Class.
MESSI GOAL! That one will stand! Messi beats 2 defenders with a sharp dribble and slips it home with confidence!
Dembele's goal will not stand! And it is unclear why VAR has disallowed that...
Ousman Dembélé scores just minutes after coming on! Trincao picks it up in the area and lays Dembele up with time to spare.
Torres pings one off the bar and hits the rebound into Ter Stegen's hands.
Koeman looks worried as Lenglets is crying in pain as he leaves the pitch. De Jong will drop back into defence for now. Aleña comes on.
Lenglet goes down with a twisted ankle. This is bad for a Barcelona that has nothing left at the back!
Messi penalised for a foul in the box as Osasuna regain possession from the back. Barcelona comfortable in control of the game at the moment regardless.
Two corners and two missed headers later Junior, Trincao, and Dembélé will come on for Braithwaite, Coutinho, and Dest

Ter Stegen palms away an effort created on the edge of the area from a nice one-twwo from Osasuna.
Busquets comes on for Pedri as the second half begins.
No problems for Barca today. Comfortable game for the home team as you'd expect against a theoretically weaker team.
+1: Ter Stegen almost caught off his line from the half way line but the effort goes just wide. That would have beaten Griezmann's goal!
Herrera comes out to clear the ball but Coutinho beats him to it outside the area. Coutinho puts it over an open goal.
That put a smile on Griezmann's face. Let's see if that's what Barcelona need to put this one to bed!
GRIEZMANN GOAL! Amazing strike from outside the ball sees Griezmann hit it on the volley. That is one for the highlight reel. Great goal.
Osasuna put the ball in the net after two amazing saves from Ter Stegen. The third shot was offside so the goal will not stand. fantastic from Ter Stegen.
De Jong having a good game controlling the pace of the match from the centre of the pitch. He's been aggressive but it has worked in creating space for Messi and Braithwaite.
Barcelona still in control of the game quite comfortably. Koeman can be pleased with the quality of the chances that they have created today.
Griezmann nutmegs Budimir and gets a pat on the back from Dest to lay it back to Ter Stegen.
Strange scenes as the referee is simultaneously arguing with Osasuna over the goal and Ronald Koeman.

Braithwaite has been linked with leaving Barcelona but he was clear he wanted to stay and he might have proved his worth to Koeman after the win against Kiev.
