In a battle of the defending La Liga champion and last season's Segunda Division champion, CA Osasuna in just their third game back in the top flight after a two-year absence will attempt to capitalize on the continued absence of Lionel Messi from the FC Barcelona lineup, according to Sport. In fact, the newly-promoted side find themselves in the odd position of sitting one point above the 26-time La Liga titlists on the table and will fight against all odds to see it that way in the match that will live stream from Pamplona.
