Valladolid sit bottom of the table going into the match, while Huesca have kept themselves above the relegation zone with four draws from five games.
Despite not having a victory to their name, it has not necessarily been a disastrous start to the season for Huesca considering that three of their draws have come against Villarreal, Valencia and Atletico Madrid – all teams who have played European football in the last couple of years.
Improving their attacking threat has to be a priority if they are to survive relegation in only their second ever top-flight campaign.
Last season Huesca were promoted from the Segunda Division as champions but were still outscored by three other clubs.
The good news for Huesca is that Real Valladolid have not kept a clean sheet away from home in their last nine attempts, last doing so against RCD Mallorca at the start of February.
They finished 13th in La Liga last season – their highest placing since 2002 – but sold star performer Mohammed Salisu to Southampton in the summer, while joint-top scorer Enes Unal also departed as his loan spell came to an end.
Valladolid have two points from five games so far, but have not been blown away by any team, only losing 1-0 to reigning champions Real Madrid.
Huesca La Liga form: DLDDD
Real Valladolid La Liga form: DLDLL
It could also mean that former Valladolid winger Javi Ontiveros is handed a first start since his loan move from Villarreal last month.
Pablo Maffeo is fit again after injury and should start at right-back, leading to Jorge Pulido moving across to the centre of defence.
Fabian Orellana is a doubt, so Pablo Hervias should start on the right wing, while influential midfielder Ruben Alcaraz could come in for his first appearance of the season after recovering from injury.
Huesca possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Maffeo, Pulido, Siovas, Galan; Rico, Mosquera, Garcia; Ferreiro, Mir, Ontiveros
Real Valladolid possible starting lineup:
Roberto; Perez, Bruno, Yamiq, Nacho; Hervias, Alcaraz, Perez, Villa; Plano, Guardiola
We say: Huesca 1-1 Real Valladolid
The wait for a first league win could go on for both teams. Valladolid appear to be slightly stronger, but based off their poor recent away form, they may have to settle for a point against a Huesca side who certainly are not push-overs.
