At 29, stealing yet another ball in the defense, Messi scared the goalkeeper with a bomb from outside the area, but sent it out. But the crowd did not have to wait too much to watch another goal. Rakitic carried the ball from the right and crossed it through everyone, finding André Gomes’ foot to shake the net.
At 36 minutes, still pressuring Osasuna, Mascherano managed to make a beautiful launch to the area, where Turan jumped to hit the ball with his head. He did not reach it and lost his chance. After the play, the Catalans stepped away from the accelerator and just administered the game until the whistle finished the first half.

At five minutes, Mascherano took a chance on a launched ball in the area, but sent it out. Barça remained creating many chances and the score board did not stop there.
