Huesca vs Barcelona
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.15 UK/ 16.15 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Barcelona needs ten more points to defend their league title and complete ten league championships in the last fifteen years. In a league that comprises Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid – that’s quite an achievement. Seven matches remain in the competition, and the pragmatic and cautious Ernesto Valverde will not leave things to chance.
The reigning champions will go for an early win, and try to finish things off in the first half itself. The reason being – their Champions League tie against Manchester United is on either side of this fixture.
Huesca is easily the worst team in La Liga and is at the bottom-most end of the table. They are also a firm favorite to get the boot once this seven match-days run over. On top of that, they have conceded the second-most number of goals in the league, 55, with the worst being 56.
Huesca vs Barcelona Head-to-head (h2h)
- Barcelona holds a 100% winning record against this opponent.
- It may be hard to believe, but the reverse fixture of the tie ended in an 8-2 scoreline.

- The last time these two met at this venue, Barca managed to post a 0-4 win.
Huesca vs Barcelona Prediction
Barca has a 100% winning record against this opponent. Astonishingly, Barca has scored four or more goals in every single h2h tie and eight or more goals in the last two. The combined scoreline for the last three h2h ties is 20-3, in favor of Barcelona, and impressively, the Spanish Champions have never conceded at this venue.
Moreover, with the team being in a hunt for the treble, the remaining ten points to lift the league crown will be tried to be recorded as fast as possible. This would give the squad a breathing space and would ease pressure in subsequent tough fixtures.
Importantly, Barcelona is trying to establish European dominance with their third treble, while Huesca is probably out of their way to the Segunda division. Count on the Blaugrana to get things under control early, which would allow them to concentrate more on their tie against Manchester United.
