FT in Barcelona as Brasanac is carded
Barcelona will finish this week's round of games in 3rd place and now face a stern test of three games... Galtasaray away... Real Madrid away and Sevilla at home.
Last minute of normal time as the fourth official confirms that we'll have 2 minutes of added time.
Three yellow cards tonight for Osasuna players and Barcelona card-free so far.
Card for Unai Garcia for pulling Gavi's shirt in the previous break.
Barcelona break and a poor ball from Memphis sees the move break down with a 3 against 1 situation for the Catalan side.
Three plus time added on here at Camp Nou with Barcelona set to keep their 7th clean sheet of the season.
AS Man of the Match (MVP) - Ousmane Dembele
Barcelona going through the motions now as the clock ticks down as Memphis almost back heels the ball into the Osasuna net.
Changes for FCB: Braitwaite on for Ferran and Mingueza comes on for Alba.
Barcelona will now set their sights on Thursday's Europa League test in Istanbul as they face Galatasaray with a 0-0 scoreline from the first leg.
Just over 10 minutes remain and Osasuna will be hoping the clock runs down as quickly as possible with the game done and dusted as a competition a long time ago.
Gooooooool. Puig makes it 4. Once again, Dembele feeds Puig ....Herrera saves and Puig is first to react and latch onto the rebound to slot home.
Changes: Brasanac-Javi Martinez
Changes: Auba-Memphis and Pedri-Puig
Osasuna win their first corner of the night ....Pique on the bench with an icepack on his hamstring with El Clasico just a week away !
Pedri tumbles in the box, looks for a penalty but the play is waved on. Once again Osasuna unable to retain the ball as Herrera saves from Dembele.
Memphis and Puig set to come on for Barcelona.
The ball falls to Ferran who looks to curl the ball into the top corner but the ball goes high and wide.
Benito makes way for Budimir
Budimir set to make an entrance for Osasuna.
Dembele feeds Ferran and the former City man is forced wide and wins a corner for the home side. A solid performance from the recently acquired striker tonight.
Can't recall a save being made by Ter Stegen. Change for FCB as Lenglet comes on for Pique.
Javi Martinez breaks and looks for Kike but Jordi Alba is alert and intercepts.
Benito takes on Pique and does well to break into the Barcelona area and goes to ground and despite a forlorn look at the ref. the play continues.
Lenglet and Memphis also warming up for FC Barcelona.
More Osasuna players warming up with limited impact from the three changes made at the interval.
Status quo now as Barcelona peg Osasuna back with all green shirts behind the ball.
Pique goal ruled out as the defender was inches offside....
Dembele delivers a fine ball into the box and Auba mis-cues and fires wide. Once again, the provider was the French winger who is delivering a sterling display for the Catalan side tonight.
Barcelona yet to get into first gear in the opening stage of the second half with visitors having the better of the action. Dembele shoots but the danger is averted from the side in green.
Arrasate will also have one eye on next week's home game against Levante. Barcelona face a tougher test as they head to the capital to face Real Madrid.
Ruben Garcia, Torro and David Garcia are the three Osasuna players who make way.
Second half is underway with no changes for the home side
Torres, Hernandez and Unai Garcia are on for Osasuna....
Three changes for Osasuna it looks like...
Confirmed, tonight's attendance at Camp Nou, 55,000.
Looks like we'll see a series of changes from Osasuna as Arrasate looks to address the problems experienced by his side in the first half.
The whistle sounds and it's been one way traffic at Camp Nou with Barcelona outclassing Osasuna. A brace from Ferran and a third goal on the night from Gabonese striker Auba the difference between the teams.
Gerard Pique enjoying a placid evening on the night he plays his 600th game in the azul-grana shirt.
Ferran just about to pull the trigger as David Garcia makes a timely intervention to steal the ball from the striker's foot. Certainly feels that a 4th goal for the home side is more likely than a strike for the men in green.
Pedri finds Ferran but the striker drives the ball high and wide. Dembele enjoying acres of space on the FC Barcelona right hand side.
Jagoba Arrasate looking somewhat glum on the Osasuna bench as he sees how his side have been totally outclassed in the 40 plus minutes of action. Kike Garcia has yet to get a look in for 'Los Rojillos'.
Busquets looks for Dembele with an ambitious cross field ball but the former BVB man is just unable to latch on to the ball. Osasuna pushing further up now and looking a little less vulnerable.
Benito slips just as he was about to shoot and the ball trickles into Ter Stegen's arms.
A win at Camp Nou would propel Barcelona to 3rd in LaLiga as they would leap-frog both Atleti and Real Betis.
As good as Barça are tonight, Osasuna are really not doing themselves any favours with an inability to retain the ball and have yet to thread more than 3-4 passes together so far tonight.
This really could be a cricket score as Barcelona are fired up and Osasuna have no reply to the game-plan from the home side.
Nacho Vidal shoots but the flag is up in a rare break forward for the side from Navarra.
Dembele looks like he's enjoying himself tonight as he tries an audacious rabona cross
Barcelona rampant as they toy with the men from Pamplona ....
What a ball from the man who looked to have his days numbered at Camp Nou back in January.
Goooooool. Ferran gets his second. Way too easy for the home side with a delightful assist from Dembele and the former City man slides the ball under Herrera's legs.
Decent ball from Moncayola as he delivers from his right flank and the ball is gathered comfortably by Ter Stegen.
Auba finds himself free in the box but just fails to get sufficient purchase on the ball and the keeper gathers. We've yet to see Ter Stegen troubled as we approach the 20 minute mark.
Osasuna have no answer to the onslaught from the home side.
Another card for Osasuna as David Garcia clips Ferran and has his name taken.
One feels, this is going to be a long night for Osasuna players and fans!
Ferran to take the spot kick.... great strike..... Barcelona lead ......
Nacho Vidal does seem to clip the Barcelona player.... and is carded
Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea points to the spot as Gavi is upended.... no hesitation from the Basque ref.
Dembele with the best chance of the night as Juan Cruz gives the ball away and the French winger goes close.
Great cross field ball finds Dembele and just as the Frenchman was about to strike, Osasuna clear for a corner. Very much one way traffic as Osasuna are simply unable to retain the ball.
A clear pattern to the game already being established as Barcelona dominate possession and Osasuna sit deep and look to strike on the counter.
Ferran tumbles in the box and looks for a spot kick. Certainly looked like the striker went to ground easily. After a quick consultation with VAR Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea agrees and the game continues.
Cagey start from both sides... Barcelona enjoying more time on the ball but nothing of concern for the Osasuna defence or Sergio Herrera in the 'Rojillo' goal.
...and now we start.... Busquets starts the game...
Slight technical glitch with the ref's technical gear before we start,....
Barcelona to get the action underway.....
Barcelona will be in their traditional azul-grana, blue shorts and blue socks tonight. Osasuna sport their all green away kit for tonight's clash.
A warm round of applause from the home fans as the women's side display the Liga Iberdrola league trophy.

For those just joining us, a reminder of the teams ahead of tonight's game as kick-off looms.
Arrasate set for Pamplona through to 2024
The current Osasuna manger Arrasate will be on the El Sadar bench through to 2024 after the Pamplona based club renewed his contract earlier this week.
Barcelona-Osasuna: match official
Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea is tonight's referee at Camp Nou with the 35-year-old also a FIFA match official since 2018.
After facing Osasuna tonight, Barcelona go into a trio of tricky tests that the outcome will go some way in shaping the possible outcome of their season as they face Galatasaray (a), Real Madrid (a) and Sevilla (h)
Xavi: pre-game comments:
Unbeaten in nine matches, manager Xavi is confident his team can get back on track after Thursday's disappointing result.
"We were very good in Elche [in a 2-1 win last weekend] and they played with a low block," Xavi said during a press conference on Saturday.
"We have different solutions but you have to interpret them well in the game. We have trained [well] these days, we have made videos and we try to find solutions.
"We faced a rival who was very good, [with] an extraordinary goalkeeper. I don't see it as a problem."
The last meeting between both sides at Camp Nou ended with a comprehensive win for the Catalan side running out 4-0 winners in November 2020. The previous encounter at Camp Nou saw Osasuna grab a 1-2 win in the penultimate game of the 2019-20 campaign.
Barcelona come into tonight's game after Thursday's disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Galatasaray in the Europa League. Xavi's side return to Istanbul next week as they look to claim a stake in the final eight of the competition.
Osasuna come into tonight's game on the back of a 1-0 win at home to Villarreal last weekend.
No Chimy Avila for Osasuna tonight with the Argentine suspended after he picked up a fifth yellow last week in the game vs. Villarreal. The men from Pamplona are sitting comfortably in mid-table and barring a complete disaster, are set to participate in the 2022-23 season in Spain's top flight.
Both Eric Garcia and Araujo need to watch their step this evening with another yellow card set to rule both players out of next Sunday's trip to the Santiago Bernabéu.
It really does look like a tussle between five teams (Atleti, Barcelona, Betis, Villarreal and Real Sociedad) for the two remaining UCL spots with leaders Real Madrid and second placed Sevilla looking like good bets to remain in first and second.
It's Barça in 5th against Osasuna in 11th with Xavi's side looking to leap-frog Real Betis after their earlier win at home to Athletic Club with the battle for the four Champions League places really heating up.
The action gets underway in the Catalan capital at 2100 (CET), local time (4 pm ET).
Hello and a warm welcome to our live LaLiga coverage from Camp Nou as Barcelona face Osasuna.
