Huesca vs Barcelona build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
The mood has lifted at the Camp Nou in recent games, with Barca now up to sixth in the table and just a point adrift of fourth-placed Sevilla when, at times, their woeful autumnal form threatened to jeopardise their chances of genuinely competing at the top end of the division.
A Lionel Messi-less Barca recently dropped points at home to Eibar, but the Argentine skipper is expected back for this clash and Koeman could go for the jugular against La Liga’s bottom club.
Michel’s side are currently rooted to the foot of the table but Barcelona have lost each of their last two games against newly-promoted clubs (vs Osasuna in July and Cadiz in December), so there is at least one crumb of comfort for the Aragon-based club.
- Huesca (vs Celta Vigo): Fernandez; Lopez, Pulido, Siovas, Galan; Mosquera, Rico, Garcia; Ferreiro, Ontiveros, Okazaki.
- Barcelona (vs Eibar): Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Araujo, Lenglet; Dest, Pjanic, De Jong, Firpo; Griezmann, Pedri, Braithwaite.
Ansu Fati, Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto remain long-term absentees for Barcelona, but Lionel Messi could feature in this fixture having sat out of the 1-1 draw with Eibar last time out, owing to a slight ankle agitation. Jordi Alba also missed the Eibar clash through suspension and will return here, while Philippe Coutinho has sustained a knee problem of his own and is now out for the foreseeable future.
Players to watch:
Huesca: Michel’s men have only won one of their seven games at home in La Liga this season, which does not bode well when your side are welcoming Lionel Messi to town. If they are to mastermind a win at El Alcoraz against one of the heavyweights in Spain, then Javier Ontiveros will need to continue producing the goods on home soil. The Villarreal loanee has scored in each of his last two home appearances and could become the second Huesca player to net in three successive top-flight games after Chimy Avila, between March and April in 2019.
Barcelona: Excluding own goals, Barcelona’s last six finishes away from home in La Liga have been scored by different players, but Koeman will no doubt be looking for some consistency up front heading into the New Year. Lionel Messi should return for this contest and the pint-sized genius, of course, has a fantastic record against Huesca. He has faced the club on only one occasion in the top-flight, but that encounter yielded a fruitful four direct contributions for Messi, who scored two goals and created a further two in an 8-2 win back in September 2018 (Huesca’s heaviest ever defeat in the competition).
