Real Madrid and Huesca meet at Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano, in a match for the 8th round of LaLiga. In the last 3 years there has only been a record of 2 direct confrontations between these two teams: one on 03-31-2019, which ended in a victory for Real Madrid by (3-2), and a more recent one on 12-09-2018 , which ended in a victory for Real Madrid by (0‑1). Huesca presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor, so in this game the home factor may be decisive.
Real Madrid :
After 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, the home team is currently in 2nd position, with 13 points won. In their last match, they beat Barcelona away by (1‑3), after having lost in the previous match (0‑1) at home, in a match against Cádiz. This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, it presents similar results at home and away, since in the last 30 games it has registered 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses as a visitor, with 28 goals scored and 15 suffered; against 10 victories, 1 draw and 4 defeats in his stadium, with 27 goals scored and 15 suffered. In their last match, for the UEFA Champions League, they drew with Borussia M’gladbach by (2‑2). In their last 10 home games, Real Madrid has recorded 8 wins and 2 losses. In 15 games, he never got the comeback in the 4 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Zinedine Zidane’s team comes to this match after a 2×2 draw in the visit to M’gladbach, for the Champions League: Real Madrid was losing by 2×0, but at the end of the match they managed to reach a draw. Real Madrid usually play in a tactical system at 4-3-3, favoring an organized style of play, but also very competent in counterattacks. One of the great qualities of the home team is the way it knows how to defend stopped balls. The home team should not be able to count on Martin Odegaard and Daniel Carvajal, because they are committed to the medical department.
The visiting team is currently in 18th position, with 5 points won, after 5 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they drew at home against Real Valladolid by (2‑2). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Real Sociedad by (4‑1). This is a stronger team with the support of its fans, since in the last 30 games it has registered 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses as a visitor; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses in his stadium. In its last 4 away matches for the championship, Huesca has recorded 3 draws and 1 defeat, for which it has won 3 points out of 12 possible.
For this competition, they have not won any of the last 7 matches. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 5 of the last 7 matches for this competition, so they were not very strong defensively. In the last 5 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 6 goals between minutes (61′ ‑ 75 ‘).
Huesca arrives at this performance quite unmotivated, after a defeat, by 4×1, in the visit to the Real Sociedad stadium. The away team may prefer the right flank to attack, taking advantage of the depth offered by right-back Pablo Maffeo. Huesca usually play in a tactical system at 4-4-2, in which the two most advanced players are Sandro Ramírez and Rafa Mir. Coach Míchel is expected to have two absences for this match, both due to injury: Mikel Rico and Antonio Valera.
