Ah, there's nothing quite like a Copa del Rey fourth round second-leg against a minnow to get your pulses racing...oh wait, no...that other thing. After a 4-0 routine victory in the first-leg in Huesca, FC Barcelona not only have a sizeable advantage, they have also already booked their place in the Round of 16. After all, it's not like Huesca are going to win by four goals at the Camp Nou now are they?
As such, this match is entirely pointless: an exercise in futility. No matter how hard they try, Huesca cannot do enough. Given recent form, there's probably not much that Barça can do that will appease their bloodthirsty fans either. No-one really wants to be here, playing or watching this game but hey, football is a job sometimes too.
Whether we see the B team players called up to training with the first team is another matter. Of course, there's no reason for Lucho not to use them, but since when did that matter for the likes of Martin Montoya or even Jordi Masip? Instead, it'd probably be wise to expect a mix of starters, fringe players with the odd Munir thrown into the action for good measure.
No matter the personnel, the tactics or the crowd, Barça are going to win again; it's simply a matter of predicting how many they will score before they let off and whether or not they can keep a clean sheet to boot.
