Leo Messi capped off his effort with a spectacular ball. The Argentine hit his style from distance in the 13th minute, the ball bouncing off the crossbar and into the net.
The Barcelona captain scored a magnificent goal. Huesca, who were defensively minded, opted for isolated breakaways, giving the hosts a massive advantage. Pablo Maffeo charged forward in the 26th minute, ran into the Blaugrana penalty area, and his flat shot was deflected with the tips of Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s fingertips.
Barcelona has no plans of slowing down. Jordi Alba came close to scoring but hit the post. Griezmann enviously looked at Messi and scored himself in the 35th minute.
The Frenchman’s beautiful ball, even from a distance, beat the goalkeeper of his opponents. Before the break, De Jong reached the crossbar. In the end, Huesca went on the offensive once more. Rafael Mir was fouled in his penalty area by Ter Stegen. The injured player stepped up to the ball and helped to cut the loss in half.
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was furious with the referee for awarding the eleven on his way to the locker room.
The Catalans took the lead after the break. Barcelona regained a two-goal lead thanks to Leo Messi’s precise pass from the left side of the pitch and Oscar Mingueza’s headshot. Huesca’s players responded by having a golden chance to score another goal.
Mir just needed to add his head and bring the ball into the net from half a meter away in the 57th minute. He struck the ball with his shoulder and completely missed it. The hosts maintained cool control of the game and dealt with Huesca’s few assaults.
Leo Messi scored again at the end, this time with a long-range shot. In his 767th appearance for Barcelona, the Argentine performed admirably.
FC Barcelona now has three points on the board. It climbed to the second position in LaLiga as a result of this. It only loses four points to Atletico Madrid, which is in the first place.
At the end of the league, it looks like there will be a great war. SD Huesca is still the only team standing.
