SD Huesca rise with a valuable triumph at Martinez Valero stadium

The Azulgranas end their bad streak with an outstanding away victory (0-3) in Elche, rediscovering their most solid defence and their most effective attack

A brilliant 0-3 on the scoreboard and plenty of clenched fists among the players. That was the scene after SD Huesca visited Martinez Valero. Besides earning three points, Antonio Hidalgo's side put an end to their four-game winless streak, rediscovering their best feelings. With a valuable triumph, maximum effectiveness and splendid defensive work to add another clean sheet.

The strategy was the key to opening the encounter at Martinez Valero, as SD Huesca managed to gain a double advantage in just five minutes thanks to two shots from rebounds of set-piece actions. Two massive goals. The first one came after 32 minutes and saw Juanjo Nieto fire powerfully from the edge of the box after the ball fell to him from a corner, hitting a defender first and then Alex Balboa and sneaking into the center of the goal. If the minimum lead was already a good haul, Kento, just five minutes later, in the 38th, increased the treasure. He shot an incredible volley from the left corner, placing it where the goalkeeper could not reach, connecting with a ball rebounded from a free kick taken by Oscar Sielva. And with the Oscenses ahead on the scoreboard, in first-half stoppage time, the hosts enjoyed their clearest chance with a ball to the far post going over the crossbar.

The start of the second half became a key moment for Hidalgo's men, as Elche tried to gain ground, returning to the field after halftime with a double substitution, and making two more changes just ten minutes later. Meanwhile, the SD Huesca coach brought on Javi Martinez at the hour mark for a cramping Balboa after his great effort.The Altoaragoneses rescued their most solid version, thwarting the advances of an attacking opponent who clashed with the last line of defense before finding the final pass. The last 20 minutes arrived and Joaquin and Obeng came on for Hugo and Elady. Javi Mier completed the substitutions, and it was from his second touch after entering the field when he found the net. Assisted by Joaquin in the 82nd, he scored the final and impressive 0-3, putting an end to all suffering for his team.
