Huesca clings to the category with a victory ‘in extremis’

The Huesca Sports Society is going to sell its skin very expensive. The ‘Pacheta effect is more present than ever despite the three consecutive defeats that the team from Huesca had suffered before receiving Real Sociedad in El Alcoraz. The coach’s mentality, of not throwing in the towel, of never giving anything for lost, has penetrated deep among his players, as this afternoon has been highlighted again.

Everything suggested that the game was going to end as it started, with a 0-0 score, but in a final arreón the tables were broken in favor of the local team. It does not matter if the winning goal was more or less beautiful, which in this case it was not since Aritz Elustonso was scored on his own goal when he tried to clear a free kick launched by Sandro Ramírez with his head. The important thing was the value that this goal can have in the final luck of the competition.

For now, the 1-0 has taken Huesca out of the relegation zone, waiting for what Real Valladolid does this Sunday against Real Betis. The pucelanos, antepenultimate, with the same points as Huesca and Elche, mark the edge of the precipice after a Saturday day in which the results have benefited Pacheta’s team with the defeats of Deportivo Alavés, already just one point away, and Elche. The tail is on fire and Huesca, for the moment, will go to sleep saving itself from the burning.

As for the game itself played in El Alcoraz, in addition to the action of the goal, there are only two good chances of the Real in the first bars in charge of Guevara and Isak who found the answer of the goalkeeper Álvaro Fernández. Despite these two plays, Huesca ended up being better than its rival, who did not know how to overcome the pressure of the locals due to the lack of clairvoyance in their football. So much so that in the first half the greatest possession of the ball fell from the Huesca side.

Real did not do much more in the second half with David Silva entering the field. The canary did not enlighten his teammates and the faith and insistence of Huesca, although he did not create excessive danger (Rafa Mir takes four days without seeing the door) he ended up giving him a reward in the 87th minute. A goal of those who are called ‘de gold’. We will have to wait four weeks to see if this is the case.
