‘Barca always struggle to win here’

Osasuna winger Sisinio Gonzalez, Sisi, has reminded Barcelona that they ‘always struggle to win’ away to his team.

La Blaugrana are on a club record run of eight consecutive wins to begin the League season with and after the international break will look to make it nine with a trip out to Osasuna.

However, one of Los Rojillos’ number is counting down the days to that test already and with anticipation.

“Any time to play them it is difficult and more so when they have just won eight in a row, but always here in Pamplona they have struggled to win,” mused Sisi to reporters today.

“Last year they struggled, whilst two years ago we won 3-2. We are going to rely on that. We believe we can get something good.

“Are Barca different under Tata Martino? I see them as the same. They have 1,000 ways to play and all are good.

“They eventually have to lose a game and hopefully it will be here. The effect of the international break is something to consider.

“We’ll see if Messi is not there, and then how Neymar is…and then the other eight outfield players.”
