Estadio de Mestalla is the venue as Valencia and newly-promoted Huesca go head-to-head in an exciting La Liga match-up. Both of their only previous top-flight H2H meetings saw Valencia win the first half ‘to nil.’
The hosts have failed to build on a 4-2 home win over Levante on Matchday 1, suffering a 2-1 away loss to Celta Vigo last time out. However, Valencia must be confident of coming back to winning ways here, as they’ve won both of their only previous top-flight H2H clashes against Huesca. Curiously, both of those victories arrived despite a -1 handicap, which was the case in just 42.86% of Valencia’s last season’s La Liga successes (6/14). Indeed, ‘Los Murciélagos’ mostly relied on a rock-solid defense back in 2019/20, as a clear majority (63.64%) of their home league triumphs, last term, saw them shut out their visitors on the day (7/11).
Meanwhile, the visitors are still seeking their elusive first La Liga victory this season (D1, L1), with both of their opening league games in 2020/21 producing precisely one goal scored/conceded in each half. The last time Huesca competed in the Spanish top-flight (2018/19 season), they pulled off just two away wins (W2, D6, L11), finishing the league campaign with a disappointing -16 away goal difference (GF:19, GA:35). Interestingly, seven (63.64%) of their 11 road league defeats back then saw the ‘Azulgranas’ manage to get on the scoresheet. However, last season in LaLiga 2, Michel’s men could only score an average of 0.90 goals per league trip.
