After beating Osasuna 1-0 thanks to a late Jordi Alba goal, Barcelona are just one win away from the La Liga title.
After only 26 minutes, Jorge Herrando was dismissed for a foul on Pedri, and Osasuna ended up playing virtually the entire game with just 10 players. Aitor Fernandez, the goalkeeper for Osasuna, made a great save to deny Raphinha’s strike from a free-kick. Pedri also saw his shot saved as the game went level at the halftime break.
In the second half, substitute Ousmane Dembele wasted a glorious chance to give Barcelona the lead, while Frenkie de Jong and Ansu Fati were also denied by Fernandez.
In the 86th minute, substitute Jordi Alba scored the game-winning goal to give the Camp Nou supporters a much-needed victory and move them one step closer to the title for the first time since 2019.
The victory gave Xavi’s club 14 points with five games remaining after Real Madrid were beaten 2-0 away at Real Sociedad later in the evening.
