Barcelona vs Huesca Prediction & Match Preview



15 March 2021 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET La Liga Camp Nou

Barcelona will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Osasuna when they take on Huesca on Monday evening. 

Barca aim to melt Atletico Madrid’s advantage in the La Liga standings, and they have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the relegation strugglers. 

The likes of Coutinho, Fati, Roberto, Araujo, and Pique remain in the recovery room, while Jordi Alba should be fit to face Huesca.

Pacheta’s men, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-3 loss to Celta Vigo, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Barcelona’s party at Camp Nou. 

The likes of Luisinho, Mosquera, Silva, and Valera are all likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting team. You should bear in mind that Leo Messi and Co. 

crushed Huesca 8-2 in their previous meeting at Camp Nou in the Spanish elite division.

Team News:

Barca's injury situation for this match is unchanged from their last clash with PSG, meaning that Gerard Pique, Ronald Araujo, Sergi Roberto, Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati will all miss out once again.

It seems likely that Koeman will again select a back three, with Samuel Umtiti, who started against Osasuna last weekend, potentially returning to the starting XI, allowing Frenkie de Jong to move into midfield.

Sergio Busquets could be given a rest in the middle of the park, but there are not expected to be any changes further forward, with Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele joining Lionel Messi once again.

As for Huesca, Sandro Ramirez, Gaston Silva, Pedro Mosquera and Antonio Valera will again be unavailable for selection this weekend.

Head coach Pacheta has plenty of options for change, particularly in the forward positions, with Javi Ontiveros and Shinji Okazaki both pushing for spots in the side.

The visitors could ultimately be unchanged from the side that started against Celta, though, with Rafa Mir, who has recently been linked with Real Madrid, featuring alongside Ferreiro.

Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Lenglet, Umtiti; Dest, Pedri, De Jong, Alba; Griezmann, Messi, Dembele

Huesca possible starting lineup:
Alvaro; Pulido, Siovas, Insua; Maffeo, Seoane, Rico, Galan; Escriche; Mir, Ferreiro
