Real Madrid vs Huesca Match Preview
Real Madrid are now playing only for second place in La Liga this season and should boost their chances of claiming that position by beating bottom club Huesca.
The realisation that this will be a trophyless campaign for the deposed European champions prompted the wheel to be turned full circle from last term, as Zinedine Zidane returned as manager this month after the failed appointments of Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari.
Zidane, who walked out five days after making it three Champions League triumphs out of three at the helm, has surely been lured back by the promise of big money to spend this summer on an overdue revamp of Los Blancos’ playing squad.
He won his first game back in the dugout 2-0 at home to Celta Vigo and it would be a surprise if Real slipped up against Huesca, who are playing their first ever Spanish top-flight campaign and trying to avoid going straight back down to the Segunda Division.
They probably will be relegated, being seven points from safety, but at least Huesca have improved significantly since the turn of 2019 for manager Francisco Rodriguez.
Value on this game is not plentiful with Real Madrid being such hot favourites, but one bet that does appeal is a flying start for Zidane’s side and we will back them to be ahead at the quarter-hour mark against a team who conceded a goal in the 11th minute last time out.
