A goal from De Jong on the edge of the first half hour of the game gave Barça a 0-1 victory on their visit to Alcoraz to face Huesca. Koeman’s men start the year with victory and return to the Europa League positions after finishing 2021 somewhat off the hook.
With Griezmann back on the bench and a forward formed by Pedri, Messi and Braithwaite, Barça showed signs of rebuilding, although the Huesca team put them in trouble on more than one occasion, forcing Ter Stegen to stain.
The culé team was able to score more goals, with a once again extraordinary Pedri who, however, was not successful in the face of goal, like Dembélé, who failed in the definition. Despite these shortcomings, the Barça attack left good feelings.
To the little fortune in some of the Barça occasions, we must add an excellent performance by Álvaro, the Huesca goalkeeper, who signed two saves to avoid a broader negative result for his team.
From time to time the minutes went by, with a Huesca that went from more to less and that in the last minutes, although he did not lose faith, he barely approached the goal of the culés.
Barça, on the other hand, was more to regulate, signing a second half doubtful after a first act of dominance.
In the last ten minutes, Antoine Griezmann had his opportunity to claim and Barça to close the game, but they did not finish finding a way.
With this victory, Barça is fifth, with 28 points, ten behind the leader, Atlético de Madrid. Huesca, for its part, continues drowning in the dangerous part of the table.
