Saturday’s early kick off sees Leganes welcome a resurgent Huesca side to the capital in a crucial clash at the bottom of the table.
Leganes vs Huesca – Municipal Butarque – Saturday 12th January – Kick off 12pm UK time
The newly promoted visitors defeated Real Betis 2-1 at El Alcoraz last weekend to pick up just their second ever top flight victory and have had a free midweek while Leganes lost 3-0 to Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey.
Lega have been on good form but the away side will be full of confidence and see the game in Madrid as a chance to win again.
These two last faced each other in La Segunda in 2016 when Huesca won 3-2 at the Butarque with the other meeting that season finishing 1-1.
Leganes remain without the injured Ezequiel Munoz, Alexander Szymanowski and Michael Santos through injury with Gerard Gumbau joining them on the sidelines after getting sent off against Espanyol last weekend.
Luisinho and Juan Aguilera will both miss the game with injuries while Xabier Etzeita is suspended. Serdard Gurler may not make the squad while Lluis Sastre has left the club.
Leganes (3-4-1-2): Cuellar; Bustinza, Omeruo, Siovas; Nyom, Recio, Perez, Silva; Oscar; Carrillo, En Nesyri
Huesca (4-3-3): Santamaria; Miramon, Insua, Pulido, Akapo; Melero, Musto, Rivera; Gomez, Cucho, Ferreiro
