Dead-last Huesca and La Liga toppers Barcelona go head-to-head at the Estadio El Alcoraz as the hosts hope to avoid another misery against the Blaugrana after a humiliating 8-2 defeat in the reverse fixture.
Rock-bottom hosts can still secure another season in the Spanish top flight as they currently sit six points adrift of La Liga safety, with seven fixtures left to go. The division’s third-worst home side have surprisingly won two of their previous five LL home outings (W2, D1, L2) although they’ve managed just one point in two of their last LL games at this venue. Faced with immense defensive difficulties, the hosts have failed to preserve a clean slate in eight straight league clashes, allowing 2+ match goals in the last five. Furthermore, only one team has shipped more goals than Huesca (55) this campaign, with Francisco’s players keeping just three clean sheets in 31 LL races so far – LL’s worst record. Another disappointing fact for the Oscense is that they’ve lost all five of their H2Hs with LL’s top-three teams thus far, conceding 18 goals while bagging four in the process.
Meanwhile, the visitors go into this encounter off the back of a significant 1-0 road win over Manchester United in the Champions League, stretching their unbeaten run to seven games across all competitions (W6, D1). Sitting top of the table with an 11-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid, the reigning holders seem to be on the verge of defending LL title. The Catalans are about to do it in some style considering they remain the deadliest attack in the Spanish top tier having scored 81 goals in 31 LL fixtures – 25 goals more than Real Madrid (second-best attacking LL record). What’s more, Ernesto Valverde’s men have lost just one of 15 LL road clashes (W10, D4, L1), wrapping up more points away from home than any other team in La Liga.
