Barcelona v Huesca: Key players
One player to look out for is Ousmane Dembele. The winger is one of the most lethal customers when on song. He comes into this game in a rich vein of form, having netted against Valladolid last week. Should he express his blistering pace freely, the youngster can destroy the opposition defence.
Alex Gallar has played a huge role in attack so far and is expected to continue the same if his side has to survive in the top flight.
The 26-year-old is a prolific striker, as he already has two goals to his name with a safe pass completion percentage of 80 - something to be proud of as a forward.
Barcelona v Huesca: Prediction
Although Blaugrana had to work hard for their three points last time out, their individual talent coupled with the team balance seems to be too powerful for the newcomers. One can also expect goals galore at the Camp Nou.
Predicted score: Barcelona 4-0 Huesca
