Barca draws with Huesca
    2019-04-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

WITH Lionel Messi and most of his regular fellow starters resting up for Manchester United, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde tried to get a glimpse of the club’s future.

Valverde fielded an almost unrecognizable starting 11 Saturday in a 0-0 draw at Huesca, the Spanish league’s bottom team.

Valverde left Messi and Sergio Busquets off the squad to rest, while Ivan Rakitic had a fever and Sergi Roberto stayed home to nurse a leg injury. Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique served one-game suspensions for accumulating five bookings.

In their place, Valverde gave playing time to several young players.

Senegal right back Moussa Wague, 20, and French centerback Jean-Clair Todibo, 19, made their debuts, while midfielder Riqui Puig, 19, made his first league appearance.

“The players improved as the game went on,” Valverde said. “This wasn’t the normal situation for a player to make his debut, which is usually going into a lineup that is full of regular starters.”

Barcelona was left nine points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid. (SD-Agencies)
