SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Huesca 0-0 Barcelona: Come on, boys! Let’s keep up the good work, improve the finishing and get the win!
HALFTIME, Huesca 0-0 Barcelona: Despite all the changes, Barça played really well and dominated the first half. Puig, Aleñá and Dembélé showed some really good chemistry together in midfield, and the only thing missing is the goal. This is not a bad performance at all, and we are in great position to win this one.
KICKOFF! Huesca 0-0 Barcelona: Come on, young boys! Please don’t give me a heart attack. Let’s all have fun today.
LINEUP NOTES: Big rotations as expected, with Ter Stegen the only starter who keeps his place. Great to see Jordi Alba and Arthur on the bench since both really needed a rest. Nice to see Moussa Wagué, Jean-Clair Todibo and Riqui Puig starting their first league game for Barça, and hopefully Abel Ruiz gets to make his debut as well. The bench is strong enough to help if things go south, and the starting XI is strong enough to get the win. Well done, Valverde.
Starting XI: Ter Stegen; Wagué, Murillo, Todibo, Umtiti; Vidal, Aleñá, Puig; Malcom, Boateng, Dembélé (4-3-3)
Bench: Cillessen, Lenglet, Semedo, Alba, Arthur, Coutinho, Abel Ruiz
Starting XI: Santamaría; Miramón, Etxeita, Pulido, Galán; Juanpi, Rivera, Moi Gómez; Ávila, Gallego, Ferreiro (4-3-3)
Bench: Jovanovic, Mantovani, Musto, Herrera, Melero, Gallar, Cucho

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, no swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
