Huesca 2-1 Sevilla: Astonishing 98th minute winner gives hosts a chance

Huesca scored in the 98th minute to keep their survival hopes alive, beating Sevilla 2-1 on Saturday.

Pablo Machin’s Sevilla were once thought to be title contendors and sat above the likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, but their form following the winter break has been extremely poor.

The Andalusian side have played the most competitive matches out of any side this term in all competitions and they are now looking jaded.

Huesca, who have sat bottom of the league table for the most part of the season seemed destined to go down before Christmas, but they have turned their fortunes around and have now caught up with the relegation battlers.

Juanpi continued their rise in form, netting as early as the 7th minute to send the home crowd into raptures.

That fortune seemed to take a backstep however when Wissam Ben Yedder got himself on the scoresheet from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining.

Various delays in play allowed their to be eight minutes of added on time however and Huesca pushed for a winner, which came through Ezequeil Avila, who wheeled away in celebration.

The win means Huesca are now closing in on a moving off the bottom spot, having seen both Villarreal and Rayo Vallecano lose this weekend.
