Huesca vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview
Huesca are now six points from safety in La Liga and are without a win in five games – despite a string of spirited performances, their relegation appears increasingly inevitable.
Barcelona have recovered form after winning just three La Liga games in nine attempts by winning 15 of their last 18, including a 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid last time out.
They have kept 12 clean sheets in their last 19 matches as they have reinforced their chances of winning a fourth La Liga title in five seasons and are now 11 points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga.
A ‘double chance’ on Huesca to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 5/4 – keep in mind that the Blaugrana are in Champions League action either side of this game – while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 2/11.
One to watch for Huesca: Colombian forward Juan Hernandez – who opened the scoring at the Camp Nou – also scored at Real Madrid last month and is priced at 3/1 to find the net here.
One to watch for Barcelona: Lionel Messi is now up to 38 goals for the campaign (including nine in his last six) as he continues his devastating goalscoring form. He is back to full fitness following a thigh injury and is at 7/10 to score here.
Long shot: Barcelona have 12 clean sheets from their last 19 while Huesca have drawn each of their last two games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 16/1.
