Relegation battle hots up as Huesca look most likely to survive

Relegation battle hots up as Huesca look most likely to survive

With the relegation battle hotting up in La Liga, bottom side Huesca look most likely to survive given their form.

Rewind back to the start of 2019 and Huesca were sat way off the 17th place safety mark in the La Liga standings, but their excellent form has seen them do the unthinkable and catch the likes of Rayo Vallecano and Villarreal.

The gap now between themselves and 16th place Valladolid is down to four points with Sergio Gonzalez’s side sitting on 30 points.

The Madrid based team have just one point from their last five games, which include a 4-0 defeat to Huesca last month and concerns are now starting over their hopes of staying in Spain’s top flight past this term.

Goals are the problem, scoring just one in those last five games and they meet Real Madrid this coming weekend at the Santiago Bernabeu.

For 17th placed Celta Vigo, things have gone from bad to worse and that culminated with Miguel Cardoso losing his job on Monday morning following the defeat to Eibar at the weekend.

The Galician side have four tough games coming up, facing Real Betis, Real Madrid, Villarreal and Huesca.

For Villarreal, they continue to sit in the bottom three – despite form slightly improving. However, given all of Santi Cazorla’s efforts – the Yellow Submarine cannot find any consistency and continue to be sandwiched in the mix of the relegation battlers.

Below them are Rayo Vallecano, a side that have lost their last five games and continue to look heavily reliant on Raul de Tomas.

March is expected to potentially seperate the bottom three from the sides sitting in 16th upwards – but given the competitiveness and unpredicatbility of La Liga this season – who knows what will happen over the next few weeks…….
