The visitors have made a positive start to life in the Primera Division and we think they are capable of finding the back of the net at the Camp Nou

La Liga champions Barcelona welcome newly promoted Huesca to the Camp Nou for the first time in league history on Sunday evening.

The tiny side from the neighbouring region of Aragon are enjoying their first ever top flight campaign with four points from their opening two games, but realistically however their trip to the Catalonia this weekend is about damage limitation.

Latest odds

Barca are offered at 1/12 (1.08) by bet365 which is likely to be the smallest price for them we see all season in the league.

The Catalans do have previous experience of losing to lowly opposition at home in September, with 2010 seeing them lose 2-0 to newly promoted Hercules and 2016 seeing them go down 2-1 to newly promoted Alaves.

A Huesca win however would eclipse both of those results and the visitors are priced at 28/1 (29.00) with the draw offered at 10/1 (11.00).

Preview

The market for this game is incredibly one-sided and finding any value in backing a home win looks like a tall order, so perhaps the smartest option for the clash is therefore opposing the hosts to keep a clean sheet.

Huesca have made a strong scoring start to life in the top flight with two goals in each of their games so far, at Eibar and Athletic Bilbao, and while the Camp Nou is a far more difficult place to find the back of the net, Huesca have been impressive in the final third.

Last season Barca conceded in nine of their 19 home games, with some of the division's smallest clubs (Leganes, Eibar, Alaves, Girona) finding the back of the net at the Camp Nou.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score therefore looks like an interesting option at 5/4 (2.20) while, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals offers a touch more value at 7/5 (2.40)

Prices correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
