Huesca vs Real Madrid: Match Preview, Team News, Predictions, Venue & Where To Watch Details - LaLiga 2018/19
Real Madrid travel to the northeastern city of Huesca to face the club sitting at the bottom of the league table in what should be a routine victory for Solari's men (as routine as anything is in football these days).
The two sides have never met before in a competitive fixture, and Huesca would be eager to get a historic result against Los Blancos, who have yet to hit the heights of the years past.
Huesca are coming into this fixture in an abysmal run of form, not having won a game since their 1-2 triumph over Eibar back in mid-August. The minnows have collected only 7 points in 14 league matches, and are the team most likely to be relegated this year.

Form Guide (Last five competitive matches)
Real Madrid: W-L-W-W-W
Real Madrid should cruise through this fixture, given Huesca have the league's worst defense, having conceded 29 goals. They also have the second worst attack, scoring a grand total of 12 goals in 14 matches. It should be an easy 3 points for Solari's men on the road. However, don't expect Huesca to just lay down arms and roll over.
Predicted scoreline: Huesca 1-3 Real Madrid.
