Osasuna have made a solid start to their 2022-23 La Liga season. They are in fifth place at present, winning seven of their opening 13 league matches. They have lost four and drawn two of the other six.
Can Rojillos Extend Unbeaten Run?
Rojillos recently went four games without a league win, picking up a point from a possible 12. However, they have been in stunning form since then, taking ten points from their following four fixtures.
During that run, Arrasate’s team have beaten:
- Real Valladolid
- Celta Vigo
Osasuna’s home form has been particularly eye-catching, as the club from Pamplona have won five of their opening seven league matches at El Sadar.
Only Barcelona and Real Betis have picked up more home points thus far. The hosts have won the last two at home, seeing off Espanyol and Valladolid without conceding.
Can they now pull off a shock result at El Sadar against the mighty Barca on Tuesday? Check out our top Osasuna vs Barcelona picks and best La Liga predictions.

Before Real Madrid play Rayo Vallecano on Monday, Barcelona sit proudly at the top of the La Liga standings.
Blaugrana have been consistent so far, winning 11 of their opening 13 matches. Only rivals Real have beaten them in the league this season.
Barca to Return to Catalonia with All Three Points?
Since losing the El Classico at the Santiago Bernabeu last month, Blaugrana have gone on to win four La Liga matches on the bounce, seeing off Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao, Valencia and Almeria. The Catalonia giants have won 11 of their past 12 league fixtures.
Barcelona have had a few bad days at the office away from home this term, especially in the UEFA Champions League.
However, since losing back-to-back away matches at Inter Milan and Real Madrid in October, Barca have won at Valencia and Viktoria Plzen in their last two.
Whatever happens with Real in Monday’s match, victory at El Sadar on Tuesday will put Barca on top at least until Thursday.

Osasuna vs. Barcelona Pick and Prediction
Osasuna have certainly been the surprise package in La Liga this season. If they can beat Barcelona to make it four wins from five, Arrasate’s boys could move into third.
After this one, Osasuna’s next league game will be against Real Sociedad on New Year’s Eve.
Barcelona have responded expertly well from their gut-wrenching loss to rivals Real last month, which remains their only league loss of the campaign.
Blaugrana are gunning for a fifth La Liga victory on the trot this Tuesday. After this, Barca’s next match will be at home to Espanyol at the end of December.
Both La Liga teams would love to sign off for the World Cup break with a win, and we can see this being a tight matchup at El Sadar.
Who to Bet On?
In-form Osasuna are sure to give the current leaders a good game, but we fancy Barca’s qualities to shine through.
Have a punt on the away win and both teams to score at +200. Also, there is good value in +110 for the Barcelona victory and over 2.5 goals.
La Liga Pick: Barcelona (-200)
