Atleti host Huesca in a new LaLiga game on Thursday at 7pm CET.
- Our team is unbeaten in the last three league fixtures against Huesca (2W, 1D) – keeping clean sheets in all three and winning the only home match (3-0 in September 2018).
- The only time Atleti have netted three goals in the first half at the Wanda Metropolitano was in that 3-0 win over Huesca in September 2018.
- We’re unbeaten in the 27 home LaLiga matches against newly-promoted sides since Simeone became our coach (25W, 2D).
- Our team has earned 70 points after 31 league games this season (21W, 7D, 3L) – our second-best record (tied with 2015/16) after the 76 points we had earned at this stage in 2013/14.
- Huesca lost 1-0 to Alavés in their last away match and haven’t lost two straight games on the road since Pacheta became their coach.
- Atleti have kept nine clean sheets in our 16 home games this season in LaLiga – more than any other side except Sevilla, who also have nine.
- Rafa Mir has netted five out of Huesca’s six league goals and is the second youngest player to have scored ten or more goals in the competition this season (12) after Alexander Isak (13).
