Huesca vs Santander by Sunshine
After a good start and win over Mirandes (that proved not to be easy to beat later on), away from home, Huesca didn't manage to build up on that performance and make much better start of the season. After that win, they drew 1:1 at home against Numancia and lost in the previous round away from home to Murcia. However, all these three teams are having good start of the season and are finding themselves at the upper part of the table.
Coming from a 2:1 defeat on the road to Murcia, in a game they surely looked like weaker opponent and could have lose it with the bigger margin, Huesca will surely try to improve the performance and earn the first victory in front of own fans against probably one of the underachievers this season. However, even so, the start of the season is more than satisfying for them, as they looked like one of the relegation candidates before the start of the season. Should be mentioned that the previous coach of Huesca, Fabri, who started the preparation period with the team, left on 14th August of the previous month, left them to go directly to Santander. Hosts will miss defenders Alex Perez, Ruben Parraga, just as midfielder David Vazquez.

Racing Santander, on the other side, is having lots of problems early in the season. Not only from a football part of the game, but also lots of financial problems that saw them staying without most important players during the Summer transfer period.
They are coming from a goalless draw earned at home against Gijon, in one of the poorest matches of the previous round. Santander wasn't fluent in attack for the whole game, without any creativity from their side, in a slow tempo match - just like their previous performances from the beginning of the season. Just one point out of three matches and without a single goal scored is surely a terrible start for a team that was a part of the Primera just months ago. Furthermore, harsh financial situation hit the club and the directors resignations are probably to follow in the next days. All of these problems created negative atmosphere around the club and surely won't help players on the pitch. Defender Bocanegra and midfielder Assulin will be absent for this game as they are with their national teams.
Huesca might not be a perfect candidate to bet on this season, but they have shown much more than Santander in first three rounds. They could have easily won even the previous game against Numancia at home and will surely be trying to get all three points here as they know that this game is their opportunity as Santander looks like they can't be much poorer than they are right now. Odds are very good against a side that showed nothing in three matches.
