Villarreal had a delightful run in the campaign last season and is likely to carry on that form into the new edition of La Liga. The host enjoys a home ground advantage, which was their strongest suit last season as only 5 of their 14 overall defeats the last term came at home.
Huesca’s return to the top tier after their relegation in the 2018/19 season has been with a champion’s title in the Segunda Division last season.
