Barcelona are currently enjoying a 11 point lead in the Spanish La Liga and a win against Huesca at the Estadio El Alcoraz significantly boosts their chances of retaining the title. After an impressive win against Manchester United in an away tie, they will switch their focus on the league which is almost done and dusted. Any more Atletico Madrid slip-ups mean they have a strong chance of closing the title in about three weeks’ time. The last time they faced Huesca, the Catalonians ran out as 8-2 winners which is not good news for Huesca supporters. Huesca vs Barcelona Live Football Score.
Central defender Xabier Etxeita missed the last game for Huesca due to suspension but should be back in the starting eleven against Barcelona. The player who is on loan from Atletico Bilbao is quite capable of stopping the Barcelona juggernaut provided he gets the support of his midfield. Ezequiel Avil is their leading goal scorer with 8 goals to his name and should start up top along with Enric Gallego. Gallego is in good form for Huesca having scored in his last two games and the 32-year-old still has the pace needed to excel in top-flight football.
Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez are both suspended for Barcelona while Ivan Rakitic has been ruled out with fever. Lionel Messi who played the whole 90 minutes against the Red Devils despite a nose injury has been left out of the squad along with midfield maestro Sergio Busquets. The unavailability of key players presents fringe players like Malcolm and Kevin Prince Boateng opportunities to shine. Ousmane Dembele is fit again and will likely start in the left side of the Barcelona forward line. This is Barcelona’s first trip to Huesca in their history and the depth in the squad will get them over the finishing line despite not playing their preferred eleven.
