Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard is ready to give youth a chance in Sunday´s Primera Liga clash with Osasuna.

With Samuel Eto´o sidelined and Lionel Messi excluded from the squad to avoid risking injury, young Mexican forward Giovani Dos Santos looks set to make his second appearance for the Catalans while Spanish striker Bojan Krkic has been called up to the squad for the first time and will start on the bench.

Rijkaard insists both starlets are ready, saying: "They are both excellent young players and I believe they are ready for the first team. I have every confidence in them."
