The home side have slipped into eighth position in the table due to their recent struggles, but Huesca will not have much sympathy with their opponents as they currently prop up the division.
Granada's involvement in the Europa League means that the Spanish outfit have played a lot of football this season, and they have managed to book their spot in the knockout round of the European competition despite suffering a 1-0 defeat to PSV Eindhoven on Thursday night.
Diego Martinez's side made a strong start to the season, but there is no getting away from the fact that they have struggled domestically in recent weeks, losing each of their last three.
Indeed, since beating Getafe at the end of October, El Grana have picked up just one point from four matches and lost to Real Sociedad, Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo during the month of November.
Granada are still in a relatively strong position in the table, though, currently sitting eighth, just three points behind fourth-placed Real Madrid on the same number of matches (10).
The Red and Whites will certainly be looking to match or better their seventh-place finish from last term, and they do have three winnable fixtures against Huesca, Elche and Real Betis before heading to Real Madrid.
Huesca are the only La Liga team yet to claim a victory this season, and a total of seven points from 11 matches has left them bottom of the table.
Michel's side are only three points from the safety of 17th position, though, and have proved difficult to beat, having shared the points in seven of their 11 domestic fixtures this term.
The 2019-20 Segunda Division champions are the joint-lowest scorers in the league with eight goals, however, while they have lost heavily at both Sociedad and Real Madrid in recent weeks.
Huesca, who have never played in back-to-back seasons at this level, gave a good account of themselves in a 1-0 loss to Sevilla last weekend, but it is likely to be a very difficult second half of the campaign if they are unable to secure a victory by the end of 2020.
Granada La Liga form: WWDLLL

Huesca La Liga form: DLLDDL
Sandro Ramirez and Rafa Mir are expected to continue as the front two in a 4-4-2 formation, but there could be a change out wide with David Ferreiro pushing to be involved, potentially in place of Jaime Seoane.
Shinji Okazaki and Javi Ontiveros are also options for change in the final third, although Michel is unlikely to make wholesale changes from the side that performed impressively in the defeat to Sevilla last time out.
Granada possible starting lineup:
Silva; Foulquier, Duarte, Sanchez, Neva; Herrera, Milla, Gonalons; Machis, Molina, Suarez
Huesca possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Maffeo, Insua, Siovas, Galan; Ferreiro, Mosquera, Rico, Garcia; Sandro, Mir
We say: Granada 2-0 Huesca
Huesca are more than capable of taking points off Granada, particularly considering the home team's domestic struggles in recent weeks. Granada are due a win and a strong performance, though, and we fancy Martinez's side to secure a relatively routine three points on Sunday afternoon.
