MATCH PREVIEW

This will be the first top-flight meeting between the sides, and looks like a complete mismatch on paper.
The hosts still seek their first ever top-flight home victory, and may have to wait a little longer judging by recent performances. Each of Huesca’s last four losses have come to nil, though three have been by a mere 1-0 scoreline. However, no side in the league has conceded more than Huesca’s 18 goals after eight games.
Opposing managers Francisco Rodriguez (Huesca) and Rubi (Espanyol) faced off twice last season in La Liga 2 (LL2). The Espanyol boss saw his side win to nil in both games, with an impressive aggregate scoreline of 5-0.
Espanyol have had a brilliant start to the season, and sit within touching distance of the table’s summit ahead of the round. The visitors have lost just one of their last five LL matches (W3, D1, L1).
Despite Espanyol’s high position, they are yet to win away from home (D2, L2). Ahead of the round, only Leganes (with zero away points) have picked up fewer than Espanyol’s two.
Players to watch: No player has scored from open play since Alex Gallar’s strike in Huesca’s recent 8-2 loss vs Barcelona.
Borja Iglesias leads the way for Espanyol with just two goals and as many assists. However, he is still some way off last season’s tally of 22 goals in 41 appearances in LL2.
Stat attack: Huesca have scored just one goal in their last 498 minutes of league football.
Espanyol have averaged 15.8 shots per game so far, which is a stat bettered only by title favourites Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Huesca have been losing at HT/FT in four of their five defeats this season.
