The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Real Sociedad take on SD Huesca at the Estadio El Alcoraz on Saturday. Real Sociedad have been impressive this season and hold the upper hand going into this game.
SD Huesca are in 19th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and face a relegation battle in the coming months. The home side suffered a 2-0 defeat against Getafe last weekend and cannot afford a similar result on Saturday.
Real Sociedad, on the other hand, have enjoyed an impressive season and find themselves in fifth place in the league table. La Real edged SD Eibar to a narrow victory in their previous game and will want to take it up a notch this weekend.
SD Huesca vs Real Sociedad Head-to-Head
Real Sociedad have a near-flawless record against SD Huesca and have won five out of eight games played between the two teams. SD Huesca have never defeated Real Sociedad in an official fixture and will look to make history in this match.
The reverse fixture between the two teams took place in October last year and ended in a 4-1 victory for Real Sociedad. Mikel Oyarzabal was exceptional on the day and will want to make his mark on this fixture.

SD Huesca vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Real Sociedad have to make do without most of their star players in this game and will be wary of an upset. The likes of Mikel Oyarzabal and Alexander Isak have had a massive impact on La Real's fortunes this season and are their team's best players at the moment.
SD Huesca have endured a dismal La Liga campaign so far and will likely need to win all their remaining games this season. Real Sociedad are the better team on paper, however, and should be able to take all three points away from this fixture.
Prediction: SD Huesca 0-2 Real Sociedad
