Barca still continuing their recent positive run, winning their last two games in all competition. After beating Atletico Madrid, Blaugrana got an important victory in Europe over Manchester United.
Those last two results will give more confidence for Barca players ahead of their weekend encounter. Valverde won’t be keen on getting any other results aside from three points on Saturday.
The home team won’t be able to play Akapo along with Insua on Saturday due to injury problems. There’s also doubts regarding Jorge Miramon along with Luisinho’s condition.
Moi Gomez should still be another important player for Huesca’s midfield setup. Up front, the host are set to count on Enrico Gallego’s duet with Avila.
Valverde will have some major names unavailable for selection this upcoming weekend. Gerard Pique and Luis Suares are both suspended, while Rafinha is still far from recovering.
Barca could even rest Lionel Messi for this match as Malcom set to be given a starting role. Arturo Vidal could also getting the nod to start as he returns from his suspension.
Head to Head Records:
Previous three meetings between both team have all in favor or Blaugrana with convincing fashion.
Both sides’ latest meeting was a La Liga encounter on September 2, 2018 which saw Barca winning 8-2.
Playing away from home won’t be stopping Barca from playing an attacking game. Valverde’s team are going to push for three points and keen on starting well.
Bottom dweller, Huesca’ is not going to give up that easy as they will play with tons of spirit and pride. On paper, Blaugrana are strong favorite, even if they are not playing their best lineup.
Final Score : 0-2
