Osasuna kept their hopes of survival alive with a 0-1 victory against a depleted Barcelona side in a festive Nou Camp. With the Champions League final coming up on Wednesday, Pep Guardiola once again rested almost all of his first choice players, the only exception a nervous Eto'o who was desperately looking for goals in his bid to be the top scorer in the league.

The visitors took advantage of the situation though, Pandiani heading past Pinto from Plasil's first half corner to open the scoring. Eto'o came close after the restart before he was eventually rested, and Bojan hit the bar with another effort. But a strict red card for 17 year old debutant Muniesa for a foul on Hidalgo ended their challenge.

Results elsewhere mean that Osasuna stay in the bottom three, but another win against a demotivated Real Madrid next weekend will mean they stay up. Barça themselves shrugged off a second defeat in a row with a huge post-match celebration, with an on-pitch presentation of the league and the cup trophies which they won last week. Guardiola sent them to bed early though - they have another big game on Wednesday evening.
