Barcelona extended their outstanding run of form by defeating Osasuna for their fourth La Liga win in a row, thanks to two goals from Ferran Torres

Torres, a former Manchester City striker, scored the game’s first goal from the penalty spot after Gavi was fouled.

Soon after, he added a second with a precise finish after a beautiful through pass by Ousmane Dembele.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored after another assist from Dembele, and substitute Riqui Puig added a fourth.

After his initial attempt was parried, the 22-year-old kept his cool, taking the ball around the goalie and cutting inside two defenders before curling in.

Meanwhile, Aubameyang’s goal was his fifth in six La Liga games since signing from Arsenal, making him the second-fastest Barcelona player in the 21st century to achieve five goals in the division, following Samuel Eto’o in 2004 and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2009.

The victory lifted Barcelona up to third place on 51 points, but they are still a long way behind leaders Real Madrid, who have 63 points.

Meanwhile, Osasuna is ranked eleventh.
