Huesca vs Real Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Huesca was almost fixed on returning to the second tier with relegation this season. With 16 points in 21 matches, the host is at the ultimate bottom of the table.
However, recently two unbeaten games in their schedule have breathed life into their hopes of staying in the top tier for another season. This includes the 1-3 win on the road against the likes of Valladolid last time out in the campaign.
The 1-2 loss at home against Levante in the last league clash slid Real Madrid to the third spot. The reigning champions need to act fast to retain their title this term.
They are now 10 points behind Atletico Madrid on the table and leveled in points with Barcelona. Injuries have been a problem for Zidane, and we can expect some changes in the playing eleven for the upcoming clash.

Huesca vs Real Madrid Prediction
Huesca has their best opportunity to trouble one of the giants in La Liga. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the middle and their win last time out will improve the morale of the players. Another area where they can take advantage is the injuries in the visitor’s dugout.
Militao who came in for the captain to control the backline with Varane and Mendy will miss the next game after a red card suspension. The injury list goes on as Valverde, Nacho, Rodrygo, Hazard, Carvajal, Lucas, and Ramos will not be available for Zidane.
However, Benzema and Asensio finding the back of the net in recent games is a good sign for the French gaffer caught in the trouble. Vinicius and Mendy will have to contribute more to the attacks. But the Galacticos are playing high in the field, causing them to get caught off guard in counter-attacks.
With their current form in the league, the visitor is still capable of making a comeback in form. The promoted team will try their best to contain the reigning champions. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters along with an away win in full time.
