Osasuna play host to Barcelona this evening in Primera Liga.

Osasuna have doubts over Emiliano Armenteros (groin) for tonight’s Liga game, with the midfielder set to be assessed ahead of kick-off.

The hosts are definitely without defender Nano (thigh), but new signing Anthony Annan could be involved after joining the club on loan from Bundesliga side Schalke in midweek.

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova is expected to make changes to the side that recorded a 3-2 win over Real Madrid in Thursday’s Spanish Supercopa first leg.

New signing Alex Song is lacking match fitness but could make his debut off the bench, while forward David Villa may make his first start for the Catalans since breaking his leg last December.

Defender Eric Abidal and midfielder Thiago Alcantra are both back in training.
