Villarreal vs Huesca
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 28th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal).
At one point in the season, Villarreal looked as if they were locked in for relegation. They were stuck in the exit-mix, and couldn’t for the life of them, dole out some favorable results. But lately, they have picked up their form, and currently, enjoy a five-point surplus over the cut-off.
Considering that their next game is against Huesca, a favorite to get relegated at the end of the season, the team will be charged up for one more win, and one more step away from the distress signal of relegation.
Huesca will not make things easy though. They realize how hard it is to get back into the top division, and they will try their maximum to claw their way to safety.
