Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona defeated Osasuna 2-0 to put some pressure on La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid.

After three straight wins in all competitions, Barcelona headed to Osasuna knowing a win would move them to within Atletico, who would have two games in hand.

Marc-André ter Stegen made a great save early on to deny Osasuna before Jordi Alba made it 1-0 for Barcelona after a lovely pass from Lionel Messi.

Eventually, in the second-half, Ilaix Moriba made it 2-0 to seal the win for Barcelona, which keeps them in the title race. Atletico face Real Madrid on Sunday.

Frenkie de Jong played the full ninety minutes and had a steady game in the midfield, completing 90% of his passes.
