Huesca vs Barcelona: Valverde’s reserves face tricky El Alcoraz visit

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde is expected to rest a number of first team players for the trip to Huesca on Saturday.

The visitors undoubtedly rest a set of their first string eleven after beating Manchester United on Wednesday.

Valverde will know, however, how good Huesca have been of late, beating Sevilla last time out to move themselves closer to the relegation fighters.

The home side do continue to sit bottom but they will go all out to beat the Catalan visitors on Saturday afternoon in what could be a cracker of a La Liga tie.

Team News

For the home side, Xabier Etxeita returns after a ban and should come back into their back three.

Jorge Miramon should be available after a recent injury, whilst David Ferreiro is fit after missing training.

Barca will rotate ahead of the Champions League second leg with Man United, meaning Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets are likely to sit out.

Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez are ruled out through suspension, meaning the likes of Kevin-Prince Boateng, Malcom and Carles Alena are expected to play.

Predicted Line Ups

Huesca Team:

Santamaria – Pulido, Etxeita, Mantovani – Miramon, Herrera, Rivera, Gomez, Galan – Avila, Gallego (3-5-2)

Barcelona Team:

Ter Stegen – Semedo, Lenglet, Umtiti, Sergi Roberto – Aleñá, Vidal, Coutinho – Malcom, Boateng, Dembele (4-3-3)
