In what is expected to be a fairly one-sided match, Atlético welcome Huesca to the Wanda Metropolitano for a first-ever meeting of these two sides, with the visitors hoping to bolster an away record that has seen them pick up all of their La Liga (LL) points on the road so far.
Having lost at home in LL just once this calendar year (W9, D4, L1), title-contenders Atlético are well used to converting their match-favourite tag into points on the board. However despite being unbeaten at home this campaign (W1, D1) the hosts can be slow-starters, and have only scored a first-half goal in one of their last five LL home games.
Contrast that with their opponents, who have netted four of their six LL away goals in the first-half. In fact Huesca are yet to score a goal at home this season – even against nine-man Real Sociedad in their last outing (0-1) – and have their away form (W1, D1, L1) to thank for their four points so far (W1, D1, L3). They’ve also scored the match opener in two of their three LL away games.
However while they may be partial to an away goal, Huesca have also conceded more (13) than any other LL team this campaign.
Players to watchThomas Lemar scored his first-ever goal for Atlético at the weekend, after finishing off a slick-passing move against Getafe. Meanwhile, Huesca’s Cucho came close in his last two games – but his sole LL goal so far came at Barcelona.
Stat attack: Atlético have kept a clean sheet in nine of their last 12 LL home games.
Huesca have scored over 1.5 team goals in six of their last seven away league matches, including all three of their top-flight fixtures.
Both teams have scored in four of Huesca’s last five away league matches.
