Huesca vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 21 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Huesca could not recover from a devastating 8-2 defeat to Barcelona at Camp Nou even though they had an extra week for that due to the international break. They disappointingly fell 0-1 at home to Rayo Vallecano and dropped down to 16th place in the league ladder as a result. Can the new boys in the league rebound on Friday evening when Real Sociedad come to visit Estadio El Alcoraz?
The visitors won’t come into the match in the best of shapes either, but they at least produced a much better display in last weekend’s defeat. Txuri-Urdinak had a one-goal cushion and missed a number of big goal-scoring chances against Barcelona on Saturday. The Basques were brutally punished with two quick goals from Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele. It was their second consecutive defeat which ruined a promising start with four points from two opening rounds.
Huesca vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head
The two teams battled it out four times in Segunda Division so far.
Sociedad were much more successful winning three and drawing one of these games back in 2008/09 and 2009/10 campaigns.
Huesca vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
Leonardo Franco will not have any issues with sidelined players unlike his colleague on the other side. Sociedad will be without their star man Willian Jose who also skipped the Barcelona clash last weekend. This leaves Juanmi and Oyarzabal as main attacking options for Asier Garitano.
His main problems are, however, concerned with the lack of meticulousness at the back given the visitors allowed two goals in each of last three league ties. Huesca did bag two or more in all of their opening three outings.
Alex Gallar notched three goals for the hosts so far in the season and we expect him to be the biggest threat to Sociedad’s goal on the occasion. The best of the betting options would be backing goals at both ends at the odds of 1.75. You can alternatively try with Sociedad to net two or more goals at 2.10.
