Huesca vs Real Madrid build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Huesca are in their second ever campaign in the top flight of Spanish football, having also graced the 2018/19 La Liga season, but it has not been a happy return as they fight against relegation once again. Azulgranas have managed just two wins in their opening 21 games so far and are rooted to the bottom of the table, albeit just three points from safety.
In their hopes of avoiding the drop, Huesca made the call to replace Michel with Pacheta and the new boss has made a positive impact. Under Pacheta’s guidance, Huesca have won four points from their past three games, including a goalless draw against fourth-placed Villarreal, ending a five-match losing streak across all competitions.
But they face their least favourite opponents, losing all three of their top-flight matches against Real Madrid – their worst 100% record against a team in La Liga. And this is a Real Madrid side looking to keep pressure on Atletico Madrid. Los Blancos fought hard to win the title last season, putting on an excellent run of form post-break to overtake Barcelona and they would have been aiming to retain it in 2020/21.
However, things just haven’t been working out, with Real Madrid already losing four of their opening 20 La Liga games, one more than they managed in the entirety of last season. It leaves them third at the moment, 10 points behind Atletico and almost certain to hand over the crown to their rivals. But until that is mathematically confirmed, Real Madrid will have to keep pushing and hoping for a slip up, starting with this weekend’s trip to Huesca.
- Huesca (vs Real Valladolid): Fernandez; Silva, Siovas, Pulido; Maffeo, Seoane, Doumbia, Rico, Galan; Okazaki, Mir.
- Real Madrid (vs Levante): Courtois; Odriozola, Militao*, Varane, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Benzema, Hazard*.
The injuries are racking up for Real Madrid, with Eden Hazard out once again with a muscle injury, continuing his poor fitness luck since joining the club. He joins Rodrygo, Federico Valverde and Sergio Ramos on the sidelines, with Lucas Vazquez and Dani Carvajal may not be rushed back. Eder Militao is suspended.
Huesca are without Pablo Insua and Pedro Mosquera, but Javi Ontiveros is available for selection again after suspension.

Players to watch:
- Huesca: Only Elche (16) have scored fewer goals than Huesca (17) in La Liga this season, but last weekend they managed to put three past Real Valladolid to claim their second win, and Rafa Mir was the star. The Spanish forward, on loan from Premier League side Wolves, scored all three goals against Valladolid, Huesca’s first ever La La hat-trick to continue his dominance of the charts. Mir has been directly involved in seven of Huesca’s 17 goals so far this season, with six goals and one assist, but the hat-trick ended a run of 11 matches with a goal. Can he find the net two games in a row?
- Real Madrid: Los Blancos have blown hot and cold this season but Karim Benzema has been one of the few stars playing with any kind of consistency. The Frenchman is Real Madrid’s top scorer in La Liga, with 10 goals so far, but he also leads the club on assists too (five). Across the rest of the league, only Luis Suarez (16) has been directly involved in more goals this season than Benzema, while his closest Real Madrid teammates are Luka Modric and Toni Kroos who have both been directly involved in five goals. Benzema has also enjoyed his time against Huesca, scoring three goals and recording two assists in his past two appearances (two goals and one assist in the previous meeting this season).
