Barcelona returned to winning ways at Camp Nou on Sunday night with a comfortable 4-0 win over Osasuna.
Xavi’s side put on an exhibition in the opening half. Pedri and Gavi played high in midfield, making it a five in attack at times, and seriously difficult for Osasuna to deal with.
Gavi was fouled in the box and Ferran Torres tucked away his penalty in the 14th minute to put Barcelona ahead. Just seven minutes later, Ferran had his second of the night, finishing well after a superb through ball from Ousmane Dembélé.
Dembélé then supplied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Barcelona’s third, and the former Arsenal captain scored his fifth league goal in only his sixth La Liga game with a neat first-time finish.
The Blaugrana went in at the break three goals to the good and cruising.
Gerard Piqué then saw his goal in the second half ruled out for offside.
Riqui Puig came off the bench to score and Barca took all three points, leapfrogging Atlético Madrid in the table.
They now sit in third place, five points behind Sevilla in second, who have played a game more.
