Match Preview

CD Leganés, battling through just their third ever La Liga (LL) campaign, meet this season’s newcomers SD Huesca, in a top-flight clash that has never happened before.
Despite being winless in four games (D3, L1), the hosts shouldn’t be too concerned having secured points against two clubs (Sevilla and Getafe) during that run that occupy the division’s top seven going into this round.
An unbeaten LL streak of six at home (W3, D3) is also encouraging, particularly as Leganés showed spirit to come back from behind in three, although they remain five points behind this stage in 2017/18 – a season they avoided relegation by a comfortable 14 points.
Huesca celebrated their maiden LL home victory after an impressive 2-1 win over top-four aspirants Real Betis, but must immediately refocus on climbing out of the relegation zone, where they have been stuck since the end of week six.
The visitors remain the league’s worst travelling side after taking points from just two away trips so far (W1, D1, L7), and ahead of this round are the only club with a double digit negative goal difference (GD) away from home (-14).
Despite not yet conceding in the first 15 minutes of any LL away fixture, Huesca have trailed at the break in five of nine away games.
Players to watch: Dane Martin Braithwaite is expected to make his first appearance for Leganés after joining from Middlesbrough on loan.
Teenage striker Juan Camilo Hernández (Huesca) has finally begun to settle into his new role as a starting forward, collecting two goals in his last three appearances.
Stat attack: All but one of Leganés’ last 12 LL matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Huesca’s -9 GD in the second half of away games is the division’s second worst.
Both teams have scored in seven of Huesca’s last nine LL matches.
