Huesca – Atletico Madrid
Huesca faces Atletico Madrid at the El Alcoraz in a match from the 4th round of La Liga. The newcomers are looking for their first win in the 2020/21 season while Atletico started with a bang their campaign. Let’s take a look at it.
Huesca won two points from their first three matches since their promotion. Michel’s team made draws during the visits to Villarreal and Valencia, but suffered a home defeat from the hands of Cadiz. It looks like right now Huesca are playing better away from home than at their own ground.
During the weekend Huesca faced Valencia at the Mestalla and went home with a point. The game ended with a 1-1 draw. Wass opened the score for Los Che, but the visitors equalised with a goal from the Greek defender Dimitrios Siovas in the middle of the second half. David Ferreiro provided the assist.
But what about Atletico Madrid? Los Colchoneros started the new season even better than we expected. Diego Simeone’s team hosted Granada and scored six times for a 6-1 win at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The new signing from Barcelona Luis Suarez was the hero of the day. El Pistolero scored twice in his debut and even provided an assist. It was a dream debut for the striker. Diego Costa, Angel Correa, Joao Felix and Llorente also scored for Atletico.
Because of his performance against Granada, most likely Luis Suarez will be a starter against Huesca on Wednesday. Maybe Joao Felix will move to the wing, so Suarez could take his place upfront.
We can make the conclusion that Atletico Madrid are favourites against Huesca, even away from home. Their impression against Granada was impressive, so it seems Los Colchoneros are in a great shape at the moment. But let’s see how Huesca will react to this challenge.
