Real Madrid vs Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid have beaten both Valladolid and Celta Vigo in their last two outings and now host struggling Huesca for their Matchday 29 as Zinedine Zidane looks to reinstate consistency at Santiago Bernabeu, where they largely struggled and which has proven costly in their inability to keep up with table-toppers Barcelona.
Los Blancos have now netted six goals in their last two outings but they’ve also looked more solid at the back under Zidane, which should have them very motivated to outclass Huesca on the day as well. They have been keeping clean sheets earlier in 2019 and rediscovering such stability will surely be crucial on the day.
Huesca sit rock-bottomed with 22 points to their name and a seven-point gap to the 17th placed Villarreal to make up, where narrow losses to Getafe and Alaves look all the more worrying. They’ve shocked Sevilla in front of the home crowd earlier but causing an upset in Madrid will be an even tough task, despite scoring goals on the regular lately.
