Result: 0:1 LOST


After a promising start to La Liga (LL), Huesca succumbed to two-straight defeats (W1, D1, L2) but will look to get back on track here against a Real Sociedad team that they have never beaten.
The hosts are not a high-scoring home side, and Huesca’s failure to hit the net in their defeat to Rayo Vallecano (0-1) last week would have come as no surprise to home fans. Their team has scored just nine goals in their last ten home league matches, and the last time Huesca scored more than two goals in a home competitive fixture was back in December 2017.
With four points from four games (W1, D1, L2), it’s been a slow start for the visitors, who had already picked up nine points by this stage last season. This will be Sociedad’s fourth away trip in five matches this season due to safety problems at the Anoeta and they may fancy their chances against a Huesca side that has conceded nine goals in their last two games – albeit eight of those at Barcelona.
Expect Sociedad to attack from the whistle, they’ve scored the game opener in three of their four LL fixtures – including a 2-1 home defeat to Barcelona in their last outing.
These two teams have met four times before (in La Liga 2), with Sociedad unbeaten, winning three of four H2Hs (W3, D1).
Players to watch: Huesca’s Álex Gallar continues to impress and has three goals in four LL games.
With Sociedad’s top-scorer last season, Willian José, unlikely to start due to injury, Juanmi will lead the attacking line and has scored once this season.
Stat attack: Huesca have recorded just one clean sheet in their last eight home league fixtures.
In their last eight LL fixtures, Sociedad have scored 75% of their goals in the first-half.
Sociedad haven’t followed a home defeat with an away win since February 2017.
