Huesca vs Real Sociedad: Both sides aiming to avoid third defeat in a row

Huesca vs Real Sociedad – Estadio El Alcoraz – Friday 21st September – Kick off 8pm UK time

La Liga debutants Huesca made a great start to their life in the big time, picking up four points from their first two games against Eibar and Athletic Bilbao but defeats to Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano have brought them crashing back to earth.

Real Sociedad are their next opponents with the Basques coming to town on Friday night, level on points with the minnows.

An impressive win at Villarreal on opening day for La Real was followed by a collapse against Leganes when they drew 2-2 before two straight defeats as well, at the hands of Eibar and Barcelona, saw them fall to the bottom half of the table.

These two last met in the 2009/10 season in La Segunda when they drew 1-1 at El Alcoraz with Sociedad coming out on top at the Anoeta when Antoine Griezmann was among the scorers in a 2-0 win.

Team News

The hosts have no new injury worries with the only player missing being goalkeeper Aleksandar Jovanovic with a calf injury. Ruben Semedo is expected to retain his place in defence while Cucho Hernandez may return up front.
