Two sides who are expected to be involved in the relegation scrap meet at El Alcoraz on Sunday. Huesca and Real Valladolid are the only teams in LaLiga who are yet to win this season and both coaches will be desperate for their teams to finally break their ducks here.

Despite their failure to win, Huesca have actually played pretty well in several of their matches. They will certainly look back on draws against Valencia and last time out at Elche as games where they should have recorded three and not one point. They were dominant at the Martinez Valero, chalking up 18 attempts on goal to their opponents’ 2 but again a lack of cutting edge saw them fail to convert any of their chances.

They added the likes of Javier Ontiveros and Sandro Ramirez late in the window in an effort to add a bit more quality in the final third. However they will certainly need to be more clinical moving forward if they are going to start turning draws into wins and start climbing the table.

As for Real Valladolid, they are a relatively established top flight outfit now in this their third campaign back at this level. Sergio won’t be pressing the panic button just yet but unquestionably a return of just 2 points from 5 games so far is a concern. Kevin Rodrigues’ last gasp winner for 10 man Eibar in their last game at the Jose Zorrilla would have sent them into the international break on a particularly sour note.

With this match followed by a home game against fellow strugglers Alaves, Real Valladolid do in theory have an opportunity to put some points on the board and ease these early season relegation worries. However they are hampered by injuries to the likes of Fabián Orellana, Kiko Olivas and Javi Sanchez here.

Predicted Huesca XI:

Aitor – Galan, Siovas, Pulido, Maffeo – Mosquera, Rico, Real – Ferreiro, Mir, Garcia (4-3-3)

Predicted Real Valladolid XI:

Roberto – Martinez, Bruno, El Yamiq, Perez – Villa, San Emeterio, Perez, Plano – Guardiola, Weissman (4-4-2)


Huesca vs Real Valladolid Predictions


Score Prediction: Huesca 0-0 Real Valladolid

While the league table may suggest otherwise, Huesca have perhaps been the most impressive of the newly promoted teams, at least in terms of the quality of their build-up play and their ability to keep the ball. However they clearly do have a problem putting the ball in the net and against a Real Valladolid side that seldom gives up many chances, a bore draw could be on the cards here.
