Barcelona have made the surprising decision to rest some of their star players against an Osasuna team with a reputation for getting good results against big teams. Their back four is intact and Lionel Messi starts, but all of Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta and Xavi rest today. Sergio Busquets is still out with a bad laceration. Pedro makes his return from injury, and starts over the impressive youngsters Isaac Cuenca and Christian Tello. Here are the lineups.
Osasuna Lineup (4-2-3-1): Fernández; Marc Bertrán, Sergio, Flaño, Raitala; Cejudo, Nekounam; Puñal, Nino, Raúl García; Lekic
Barcelona Lineup (4-3-3): Valdés; Dani Alves, Piqué, Puyol, Abidal; Mascherano, Sergi Roberto, Thiago; Alexis, Pedro, Messi
Kickoff is at 2:00 p.m. ET, 8:00 p.m. local from Estadio El Sadar in Osasuna, Spain. You can catch the game on GolTV in the USA and Canada, as well as Sky Sports 4 in the UK.
