Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Huesca

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's injury and suspension news ahead of their La Liga clash with Huesca on January 3.

Barcelona will be looking to return to winning ways in La Liga when they continue their 2020-21 campaign away to struggling Huesca on Sunday night.

Barca have also played two games more than Atletico at this stage, meaning that the Catalan giants face a huge task to pull themselves into title contention in the second half of the season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Huesca, who are currently bottom of the division.
