Huesca vs Real Madrid Prediction & Match Preview

Huesca vs Real Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).

After suffering a heart-breaking 2-1 loss to Levante at home, Real Madrid will be aiming to keep their hopes alive when they take on Huesca on Matchday 22. 

Los Blancos are currently sitting above both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona in the La Liga standings, meaning that they face a must-win situation in Saturday’s clash. 

Eder Militao will have to serve his ban against Huesca, while Rodrygo and Valverde are both likely to miss the game with injuries.

Sergio Ramos, Lucas and Carvajal should recover in time to face Huesca. 

The hosts, on the other hand, produced one of their best performances of the season at the weekend, with the team beating Real Valladolid 3-1 on the road. 

Huesca, though, will have a much bigger fish to fry against Real Madrid, and given the importance of the match for the Spanish giants, away win should be considered. 

A man to watch in the home team will be Rafa Mir, who scored a hat-trick against La Pucela.

Team News:

Huesca are again expected to be without Pedro Mosquera, Sandro Ramirez, Antonio Valera, Juan Carlos and Pablo Insua through injury this weekend, but Javi Ontiveros is available following a suspension.

Pacheta, who only took charge of the strugglers on January 12, could decide to name the same XI that took to the field against Valladolid last time out.

Ontiveros, Dani Escriche and Pedro Lopez are all pushing for positions in the side, but the manner of the performance at Valladolid could see the same team sent onto the field.

As for Madrid, Eder Militao is suspended due to the red card that he picked up against Levante, while Rodrygo Goes, Eden Hazard and Federico Valverde are definitely out of the contest through injury.

Lucas Vazquez, Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal are also huge doubts, but Nacho has returned to training after testing negative for coronavirus, and the versatile defender is in contention to feature.

Hazard's absence with another muscular problem could see Vinicius Junior handed a spot in the final third of the field alongside Karim Benzema and Asensio.

There are also not expected to be any surprises in the middle of the park, though, with Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric lining up as the midfield three against the league's bottom club.

Huesca possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Pulido, Siovas, Silva; Maffeo, Rico, Doumbia, Seoane, Galan; Okazaki, Mir

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Odriozola, Nacho, Varane, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Vinicius, Benzema, Asensio
