EL PLANTÍO PUTS AN END TO SD HUESCA STREAK AWAY FROM HOME

The Azulgranas suffer a defeat to Burgos CF (3-1), after having scored the opener by means of Cristian Salvador in the first half

SD Huesca got our away streak broken at El Plantío this Sunday. Burgos CF felt strong enough at home to come from an early goal down and end celebrating the victory in a match where the Oscenses were rocked and never felt comfortable.

Nacho Ambriz promised changes to his side and made five from the XI that started the last game, aware not only of the intensity of the encounters to come in the following weeks but also of the fight Burgos always put up at home. And he was proven right.

It was Huesca who took the lead as early as the 12th minute, by means of Cristian Salvador, thanks to a set-piece. Marc Mateu played a beautifully weighted cross to the far post, where Pulido was trying to find the net while the defence and the goalkeeper got themselves into a tangle. Cristian managed to open the scoring then. With almost the whole clash still to go, the Azulgranas did not succeed in lowering the intensity of the game, and we ended paying very dearly. Valcarce headed for the equaliser.

The draw did lower the intensity and the big chances for both sides. Late in the first half, just before the break, Pitta made some good plays – all of them were pawed away by goalkeeper.

Nothing went right for Nacho Ambriz’s side and Burgos had a goal ruled out by VAR for a marginal offside call. The Mexican tried to make our team fresher and more fluent by bringing on Seoane and Juan Carlos. Unfortunately, SD Huesca did not get our reward for his invention and it was responded by making it 2-1 for Burgos, as Valcarce got a second following a counterattack.

It was all or nothing, and the manager displayed all our offensive capabilities when Gaich and Escriche came on placing themselves next to Pitta. Although the Oscenses attempted to claw our way back into the fixture, the home team grabbed the final goal in a counterattack following a corner, which meant the final 3-1 in the injury time.
