Huesca boss Pacheta says Monday’s clash against Barcelona at the Camp Nou is not a case of “mission impossible” for his side who are currently bottom of the table.

Monday’s visitors have only managed three wins all season in the top flight and face a real battle to avoid relegation.

Barca will be favorites to win comfortably and extend their 16-match unbeaten run, but Pacheta says he’s looking forward to taking on the Catalan giants.

“I don’t think it’s a mission impossible. Anything can happen in football. In basketball it is different. We are looking forward to it,” he said.

Pacheta also admitted his team would have to play “the perfect game” if they were to take all three points and also opened up on what worries him most about facing Barca.

“The speed of Dembelé, the overlap of Alba, the great player that is Messi ... They are such good players that all these virtues are difficult to stop. Almost all the players have important characteristics.”

Barca head into the match in good form and with the added motivation that a victory would cut the gap to leaders Atletico Madrid to just four points.
