Barcelona have the chance to secure the leadership of La Liga through the World Cup but they have already gone one down against Osasuna.
With no Gerard Pique in the starting line-up, Marcos Alonso was chosen as a central defender alongside Andreas Christensen. He was involved in the opening goal too.
After a Sergio Busquets mistake, Barcelona were asked to defend a corner, which David Garcia headed down into the corner.

Barcelona players protested vehemently that Alonso was fouled by Unai Garcia, but after a lengthy VAR check, they found nothing wrong with the goal. Here is the incident.
