Real Madrid to discover Huesca for the first time

Huesca are experiencing their first ever season in the Spanish top flight and they’ll host Real Madrid at the Estadio El Alcoraz on Sunday, with this being the 62nd different team Los Blancos visit in the league.

Real Madrid‘s first ever league trip was on February 17, 1929, when they played Barcelona in Catalonia and now they’ll take on another team wearing the same blue and red colours 89 years later.

They’ve never visited Huesca in an official match before, not even in the Copa del Rey.

The only previous time Los Blancos arrived in the city was for a friendly match played on March 25, 1963, one which celebrated the 25th anniversary of the liberation of Huesca.

Looking at Real Madrid‘s record against teams they visit in the league for the first time, they’ve won 29, drawn 13 and lost 19 of these fixtures.

The most recent one was when they fell 2-1 at Girona last season, while their other 21st century maiden trips have seen them lose 2-1 at Getafe in 2004/05, lose 2-0 at Almeria in 2007/08, win 3-0 at Xerez in 2009/10, win 4-0 at Eibar in 2014/15 and win 4-2 at Leganes in 2016/17.
