The next Barcelona match is upon us. The Blaugrana will open up the Camp Nou doors to welcome SD Huesca for a formality contest. After winning 4-0 away from home two weeks ago, Barça pretty much confirmed their spot in the Copa Del Rey quarterfinals. But they still need to play the second leg, and that's what's happening today.

Unsurprisingly, coach Luis Enrique decided to rest most of his starters. Claudio Bravo, Gerard Piqué, Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Luis Suárez, Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba and Jérémy Mathieu will get the day off, while Neymar Jr. and Dani Alves will keep nursing their respective injuries.

Five youngsters from Barça B will get a chance to be part of the squad: Sergi Samper, Adama Traoré, Sandro Ramírez, Munir El-Haddadi and Diawandou Diagné will be in uniform and might get some minutes of action tonight.

The full 16-man squad is:

1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 25. Jordi Masip, 2. Martín Montoya, 7. Pedro, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 16. Douglas Pereira, 20. Sergi Roberto, 21. Adriano, 26. Sergi Samper, 27. Adama Traoré, 29. Sandro Ramírez, 31. Munir El-Haddadi, 33. Diawandou Diagné

Expected Starting Lineup (4-3-3):

Masip; Douglas, Bartra, Mascherano, Adriano; Samper, Roberto, Iniesta; Rafinha, Munir, Pedro

The match starts at 22:00 CET, and you can follow all the action right here, at Barça Blaugranes.

VISCA EL BARÇA!
