Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up in Thursday's La Liga clash with Osasuna.

Barcelona will be looking to keep their La Liga title hopes alive when they welcome Osasuna to Camp Nou on Thursday night.

The Spanish champions are currently four points behind league leaders Real Madrid with two games left, meaning that Zinedine Zidane's side can win the title on Thursday with a win over Villarreal.

Barca must look after themselves, though, and the Catalan giants will be focused on making it four straight victories in Spain's top flight when they welcome 11th-placed Osasuna.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the home side could line up in this match.

Out: Ousmane Dembele (hamstring), Samuel Umtiti (knee)
Doubtful: Antoine Griezmann (thigh), Arthur (illness), Frenkie de Jong (calf)

Barca will again be without the services of Ousmane Dembele and Samuel Umtiti through injury, while Antoine Griezmann is a huge doubt with the thigh problem that he picked up against Real Valladolid on Saturday.

Griezmann had to be replaced at the interval of his side's 1-0 win, and it is thought that he could miss the rest of the league season before potentially returning against Napoli in the Champions League next month.

Frenkie de Jong is expected to make a timely return from a calf injury, though, with the Netherlands international likely to be selected as part of a four-man midfield.

Head coach Quique Setien has the option of bringing Ansu Fati into the attack, but he played a midfield diamond against Valladolid and that could again be the case here, with Arturo Vidal operating just behind Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Sergi Roberto could again be preferred to Ivan Rakitic in the middle of the park, while Jordi Alba is expected to start at left-back despite missing Tuesday's training session due to a knock.
