Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Osasuna

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga showdown with Osasuna.

Barcelona responded from their disappointing loss to Athletic Bilbao in their season-opener to beat Real Betis 5-2 on Sunday evening.

Antoine Griezmann got a brace and Carles Perez scored his first senior goal for the Catalan giants as Ernesto Valverde's men came from behind to get their first win of the new La Liga campaign.

Barcelona now travel to Pamplona to take on Jagoba Arrasate's Osasuna, who drew 0-0 with Eibar on Saturday to make it four points from their first two games back in Spain's top flight after winning the Segunda Division last season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the fixture on Saturday afternoon.

Messi was not deemed to have recovered enough from the calf problem he picked up with Argentina during the summer to feature against Betis, but the 32-year-old is back in training and could be fit enough for the bench at least on Saturday.
