Overview

A Carlos Carmona brace consigned Osasuna to a 3-1 defeat against Sporting Gijon on 4 December – the Pamplona club's fourth straight loss in La Liga. Los Rojillos have only won one of their last 12 meetings with Barcelona in all competitions.

Didier Digard and Javi Flano are both out injured for the hosts.

Arda Turan's hat-trick inspired Barcelona to a 4-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League in midweek. The Catalan giants have only won three of their last eight matches in all competitions.

Defender Jeremy Mathieu is out injured for the visitors, while Brazilian striker Neymar is suspended.

What managers say

Joaquin Caparros: "We can find a solution to this, don't forget we still have not played the first full round of matches. It is true that with each passing round our situation becomes a little more complicated but we must keep working and keep fighting. All defeats hurt us – we could have done better in the final third today and taken more of our chances but Sporting played very well and deserved to win." [via Football Espana]

Luis Enrique: "I am satisfied with the speed of the circulation of the ball [against Borussia Monchengladbach]. We played nearly the whole game in the opposition half. The players had a lot to lose but I think it was one of the games we've been most precise in, in terms of ball circulation, which is good news. We want to continue in this manner and improve, above all, at Camp Nou." [via ESPN]
