Xavi Hernández has no choice but to bet on Umtiti and Luuk De Jong at Osasuna – Barcelona in the Santander League. The Catalan coach has up to eight casualties in the El Sadar duel and bets on two unusual players. Abde remains in the eleven and Dembélé also leaves from the beginning.
The complete line-up of Barcelona on this day 17 of the national competition is made up of: Ter Stegen; Piqué, Araújo, Umtiti; Busquets, Nico, De Jong, Gavi; Abde, Luuk and Dembélé.
Barcelona arrive in Pamplona wanting to get up after the tough defeat in Munich that has left them out of the knockout stages of the Champions League and has condemned them to continue their continental path in the Europa League.
The situation of the team coached by Xavi Hernández is also not good in the Santander League , where they are 16 points behind the leadership, held by Real Madrid , and have only achieved one victory away from home throughout the season, a trend that they will try to reverse in the Navarran capital.
