Huesca vs Real Valladolid Prediction
Huesca won promotion by winning La Liga 2 last season but there is a marked difference between the top-flight and the second division.
They have, however, impressed with points picked up against the likes of Villarreal and Atletico Madrid and could pick up a hard-fought win against a hapless Valladolid.
