Osasuna – Huesca | 20/11/2020

Osasuna will be looking to recover from back-to-back defeats in Spain’s top flight when they continue their 2020-21 campaign at home to Huesca on Friday night. Los Rojillos have lost their last two La Liga encounters to Atletico Madrid and Sevilla to drop to 13th in the table, while Huesca are rock bottom and still without a league victory this season.

Osasuna’s only start as a favourite at home in the 2020/21 La Liga (LL) resulted in the first of their two home defeats by a margin of two goals. Courtesy of a September defeat to Levante, Osasuna went into the international break as one of two clubs to lose a LL home game when scoring the first goal, but have since improved with two home wins-to-nil from their last three home encounters.

As a result of Osasuna conceding and scoring just two first half goals each at home across their LL campaign, the first half has not been the highest scoring half in any of their four LL home games to date. Interestingly, the only two home games in which they conceded before HT both resulted in 1-3 scorelines.

Huesca will meet their hosts in a top-flight setting for the first time, having enjoyed three consecutive Segunda División (LL2) contests without defeat (W2, D1). Notably, none of the last four LL2 H2Hs have been decided by more than a one-goal margin.

Yet to open the scoring away from home since the opening week, Huesca have in fact been held scoreless to the HT break in each of their last four LL away fixtures, conceding HT/FT doubles and 4-1 results in their last two. But with a record of D3, L2 as an outsider at all venues, including draws against high performing clubs such as Villarreal and Atlético Madrid, Huesca have been capable of securing a point against expectations.
