On November 8th Barcelona ended in a slender 2:1 win against Osasuna away from home in a La Liga encounter. The outfit is on a streak of four successive victories. In Barcelona’s last 10 meetings, being the host or playing away was not really a factor that affected the outcome. The squads playing on home ground recorded 5 triumphs and the guests recorded 4. Just 1 of the last 10 clashes ended in a draw. Three of Barcelona’s last five games featured over 2.5 goals, with both sides hitting the targets in two of them. During these los Cules were successful in maintaining two clean sheets, and they failed to score in just one. Judging by the numbers, the team’s preceding 5 outings saw an average of 3.00 goals.
