Real Madrid will be looking to make it back to back wins in the La Liga this weekend after a successful result in the Champions League. The side will play host to side Huesca at the Santiago Bernabeu. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 4 pm.
Los Blancos came off a successful El Clasico clash with a 3-1 win over rivals Barcelona. The side currently sits second in the La Liga table. Huesca is yet to make a win in the La Liga and is currently sitting 18th on the table.
However, it has been a mix of good and bad results in the La Liga, especially their 1-0 defeat to side Cadiz. The side continued to pick 13 points from their last six matches to sit second in the La Liga table.
The defending champions currently sit one point off table leaders Real Sociedad with a game in hand. Their boost in confidence could see the side top the table come this weekend with a win against Huesca. It is proving a hard wrestle in the Champions League while picking one point from their two matches.
Huesca is only one of the two teams – the other being Real Vallavoid without a win in the La Liga. The newly-promoted side has lost two of their seven matches while drawing on five occasions to pick up five points.
