Barcelona Releases List Of Squad To Face Huesca

Barcelona Releases List Of Squad To Face Huesca 5

Barcelona will travel to Aragon to take on SD Huesca, their first match in 2021.

Ronald Koeman has handpicked 22 players for the flight, after being forced to leave out Philippe Coutinho, who picked up an injury against Eibar during the midweek fixtures.

Another major takeaway from this list is the exclusion of Samuel Umtiti. The Frenchman has featured twice — off the bench — since recovering from his injury, but has not been picked for the clash against Huesca, for reasons undisclosed right now.

Konrad de la Fuente makes the cut for the game, but more exciting than that will be the inclusion of Lionel Messi. The Argentine had picked up an ankle injury post the game against Real Valladolid, and missed the Eibar clash.

Jordi Alba returns as well after serving his single game suspension for the fifth yellow he pecked this season.

The full list: Ter Stegen, Neto, Pena; Dest, Araujo, Lenglet, Mingueza, Alba, Firpo; Busquets, de Jong, Matheus, Pjanic, Alena, Puig, Pedri; Dembele, Trincao, Konrad, Messi, Griezmann, Braithwaite

Absentees: Pique, Roberto, Fati, Umtiti, Coutinho
