“In general we played well in the last 20 minutes,” said Koeman after the game. “We created a lot of danger. It’s not easy against a team that has a lot of defensive players

“But we switched wings well, we scored a good goal, we created more chances to have a bigger advantage””

Huesca could have equalized in the second half when the ball ran over Barca’s area and striker Rafa Mir pointed a back wheel at the goal, but the shot had no strength and goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen saved it, despite the fact that he did Ball saw late

He made up for the only goal of the game with a clever piece of play, but picked De Jong with a sensational, curling cross

Messi almost hit himself with a free kick in the first half, but Huesca keeper Alvaro Fernandez threw a shot over the bar
