Barcelona moved to within six points of leaders Real Madrid following a dramatic 1-0 win over Osasuna at the Nou Camp on Sunday.

Buoyed by Real´s defeat at Almeria on Saturday, the Catalans began with the attacking verve missing in their recent games.

But the visitors resisted until the 87th minute, when Xavi fired home a dramatic late winner to give Barcelona hope of regaining the league title which had looked beyond them after they slipped nine points behind Real last week.
