The Barça goes hunting

Koeman seeks to get four points behind the leader (21:00, Mov. LaLiga). Huesca arrives as a bottom, but willing to imitate the feat of Cádiz.


Barcelona is in a situation that seemed impossible a couple of months ago. Receive tonight at the Camp Nou (9:00 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) to Huesca, bottom of the classification to try to place in case of victory second in the table four points behind an Atlético de Madrid that still has to pay a visit to the Camp Nou.

A perfect occasion to start the hunt for the end of the season in search of a leadership that not long ago was utopian (follow the game live on However, Koeman prescribes prudence from the rooftops. Not long ago, the Blaugrana team already wasted a similar opportunity against Cádiz and it does not seem that it will have more bullets in the chamber if it does not take advantage of the confrontation against the last of LaLiga.

Barcelona comes to the match after being eliminated from the Champions League on Wednesday in Paris. The consolation of the Barcelona team remains that they fell with honor, but fell.

The game in the Parque de los Príncipes will have nothing to do with tonight, where Huesca will go out to entrench themselves in their area and will not leave the spaces that the Blaugrana team found in their European farewell.

For Barcelona, victory is a must, while for Huesca any point is gold. It is true that Pacheta will try not to risk players like Sandro or Mosquera, who arrive at the meeting very fair, but that the Burgos coach prefers to have them ready for next Saturday against Osasuna, a match in which the Alto Aragonese play a lot against a rival who scores nine points.

For Barça, according to Koeman, there is no more important game than the one that has to be played immediately. Therefore, despite the fact that Real awaits in Anoeta next week, it does not seem that it will do without Messi and De Jong, both with one card from suspension. Araújo, already recovered, could also join for a hunt unthinkable two months ago.
