Barcelona are showing signs of improvement, which means that they could once again be a main player in the La Liga title race. However, they will need to pick up the win on Monday evening against Huesca to continue to put pressure on Atletico Madrid.
La Liga Preview
Barcelona have shown more than enough improvement since their defeat against PSG a couple of weeks ago to see the pressure on Ronald Koeman ease slightly. The Dutchman was widely believed to be in danger of losing his job after that disappointing 4-1 defeat at the Nou Camp, but he has done an excellent job of making sure that his side have been able to bounce back. They were unable to overcome the first leg defeat in the Champions League, but did give it a good go in Paris, drawing 1-1. Barcelona were able to come back against Sevilla to reach the final of the Copa del Rey though, and are just six points off the top of the league. The Catalonian giants have been in exceptional league form, as they have won their last three. Their last win came on the road against Osasuna, as Jordi Alba and Ilaix Moriba scored in the 2-0 success.
Barcelona will be the heavy favourites to get the win in this fixture, as they will be coming up against a side that are bottom of the La Liga table. Huesca have managed just three league wins all season, and have lost the second-most games in the league this term. There have been signs of improvement recently though, as they have won twice in their last six. Huesca have also lost just once in their last three, but that defeat did come in their last league game against Celta Vigo.
Barcelona vs Huesca Head To Head
Huesca’s chances of winning this game will not be helped by the fact that they have never beaten Barcelona. The two clubs have met on five occasions, with Barcelona winning on four occasions. They have scored eight goals in two fixtures against Huesca. However, the game earlier in the season was a tighter affair, as Barca won 1-0.
Barcelona vs Huesca Prediction
Barcelona will be the winners in this fixture. They have been in great form recently, and they will be aware that their chances of challenging for the league title will hinge on them getting maximum points from this game.
