Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After suffering a heart-breaking 2-1 loss to Levante at home, Real Madrid will be aiming to keep their hopes alive when they take on Huesca on Matchday 22. Los Blancos are currently sitting above both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona in the La Liga standings, meaning that they face a must-win situation in Saturday’s clash. Eder Militao will have to serve his ban against Huesca, while Rodrygo and Valverde are both likely to miss the game with injuries.
Sergio Ramos, Lucas and Carvajal should recover in time to face Huesca. The hosts, on the other hand, produced one of their best performances of the season at the weekend, with the team beating Real Valladolid 3-1 on the road. Huesca, though, will have a much bigger fish to fry against Real Madrid, and given the importance of the match for the Spanish giants, away win should be considered. A man to watch in the home team will be Rafa Mir, who scored a hat-trick against La Pucela.
Highlighted Player (Pedro Mosquera):
Born in A Coruna, Galicia on April 21, 1988 Pedro Mosquera is a Spanish midfielder who plays for Deportivo La Coruna. After finishing his youth career at Real Madrid, he started playing for RM Castilla at senior level and he made no less than 98 appearances for the club from 2006 to 2010.

Pedro Mosquera has a contract with the Galician club which expires on June 30, 2021. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 13 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world.
Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
