Real Sociedad vs Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 27 January 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta (San Sebastian).
La Liga debutants Huesca are in a very tough situation as they sit at the very foot of the ladder being ten points away from the safe zone. They will thus likely make it only a one-year spell of loan in the top flight of the Spanish football as it is hard to believe the team from El Alcoraz can turn a corner in remaining 18 games of the season.
The visitors saw a moment of bliss when they defeated Real Betis 2-1 at home earlier this year, but it was only an exception as they quickly returned to the old habits losing two following outings.
Huesca failed to find the back of the net past both Leganes and Atletico Madrid in last two rounds and they head into the Matchday No 21 tie against Real Sociedad as heavy underdogs.
Real Sociedad vs Huesca: Head-to-head
Sociedad were the dominant force in the short history of head to head matches with Huesca.
Txuri-Urdinak won four and drew one of five meetings with the team from El Alcoraz.
Huesca scored only two goals in five H2H ties with Sociedad.
The Basques claimed a 0-1 victory when they visited El Alcoraz in this term of Primera Division in mid-September last year.
Real Sociedad vs Huesca: Prediction
Sociedad have generally had a roller-coaster campaign in this term of La Liga. Nonetheless, they grew in form ever since Imanol Alguacil took charge in December. The Basques made it five straight games without a defeat in all competitions. They climbed up to 8th in the standings as a consequence and are only five points shy of top-six spots.
Alguacil’s men scored two or more goals in four of past five matches. They bagged five in last two home outings against Espanyol and Real Betis. We believe in the continuation of such high-scoring trend from the hosts given they are up against the weakest defensive line in the division here.
