Villarreal travelled to Huesca‘s El Alcoraz this afternoon with the hope of leapfrogging Barcelona into third and keeping Sevilla at an arm’s length with a win.
Their hosts, on the other hand, were desperate to pick up a much needed victory to give them a bit of forward momentum. Huesca are rock-bottom of La Liga, six points from safety before kick-off.
Neither got what they wanted. The game, a tight and competitive stalemate, finished goalless, with neither team asserting themselves upon the tie and seizing control. In fact, each of the last four meetings between these two sides have ended in draws.
Next up for Villarreal is a Copa del Rey clash with Girona this coming Tuesday, before they host Real Sociedad in a pivotal clash next Saturday evening.
Huesca travel to Real Valladolid in this Friday night’s fixture, hosting last season’s champions Real Madrid the following Saturday afternoon.
