Barcelona is still in a tight race for the top of the table. They’re tied with Atletico Madrid for first place in La Liga. Osasuna on the other hand is struggling to get by in league play. They currently sit in the relegation zone in 18th place.
Barcelona has won every game this season. If they beat Osasuna and then beat Real Madrid in the following game they’ll beat the record for the best start to a La Liga season ever.
“It’s obvious that getting the record would mean having a bigger point advantage and that our start to the season would be unsurpassable” Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets said, via ESPN FC.
“But records don’t give you titles and we can’t forget about Atletico Madrid [and the challenge they possess].”

Busquets is just focusing on the game this weekend.
“The match on Saturday is very important and we, the players, know that we first have to play Osasuna, they are a tough team to beat at home,” he said.
“We’ve always had a hard time in their stadium, but we’ll try to come back with the three points.”
