Barcelona vs Osasuna: The game will not be easy, says Guardiola

January 4, 2012 By Isaac Asante
Barcelona play Osasuna later in the day in the Copa del Rey, but Pep Guardiola believes the match will look nothing like the meeting they had earlier this season.
Barcelona destroyed Osasuna 8-0 in a league match on 17 September 2011 at the Camp Nou. The two clubs once again face each other in Cataluña, but Guardiola is not even eyeing an easy challenge.

“That was a long time ago,” he said while referring to his side’s major triumph over Los Rojillos. “The situation has changed.”

Preferring to look at his mission in its entirety, he added: “This is a 180-minute match and we have to try to get a good result.”

Indeed, good results are just what Barcelona need if they are to get through their busy schedule this month with satisfaction. Using the team’s key players wisely is the central idea of Guardiola’s plan, but he has yet to decide whether Lionel Messi will perform tonight or not.

He has however affirmed that “the sooner he returns the better.” Iniesta is also said to be making great improvements, and he is therefore expected to play a few minutes against Osasuna.
