SD Huesca vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Atletico Madrid displayed one of their most dominant performances in recent memory when they outplayed and thrashed Granada on Sunday.

The Andalusians had been the early pacesetters in the league and came into the clash having won four games on the trot in all competitions, but Los Colchoneros were uninterested and sent a real statement of intent for this season.

New star Luis Suarez had a spectacular 19-minute debut and with him leading the line, Huesca stand next to no chance of picking up anything from this fixture.

Prediction: Huesca 0-3 Atletico Madrid
