After a stop-start 2020, Barcelona will be looking for a fresh start in the new year when they visit Estadio El Alcoraz to play Huesca in matchweek 17 of La Liga 2020-21.
Currently 10 points off league toppers Atletico Madrid in the La Liga points table, a title charge already looks difficult for the Catalan giants but Ronald Koeman's men will be eager to turn things around. Watch Huesca vs Barcelona in the La Liga live in India.
Barcelona will start the year with several big-name players like Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto, Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati sidelined due to injuries.
There may be good news, however, as Lionel Messi, who missed Barca's last match due to a knee injury, may be set for a return to the squad.
Up against Huesca, who are struggling at the bottom of the table, Barcelona will be expected to pick up all three points.
Barca's arch-rivals Real Madrid, meanwhile, will be up against Celta Vigo at home this weekend.
The Los Blancos are second - just two points behind city rivals Atletico despite playing two games more - and will look to chase down their city rivals in a bid to defend their title.
Midfielder Luka Modric and striker Karim Benzema have been the standout players for Real Madrid this season.
Diego Simeone's Atletico will be away to Alaves this matchweek.
