Everything started so brightly for the smallest club to ever reach Spain’s top flight.
A debut victory over Eibar was backed up with a creditable draw away at Athletic Bilbao and suddenly the tiny club from the North East of Spain was making the country’s top flight look like a piece of cake.
However, a trip to Barcelona was soon to prove a lesson the club have as of yet failed to recover with Messi and co running riot in an 8-2 hammering at the Nou Camp.
Four months have passed since that defeat and Huesca have not recording a single win since and have collected just four points since the 2nd September.
It is of no surprise then that those who bet on La Liga with paypal at the start of the season for the minnows to drop straight back down to the Segunda division are rubbing their hands ready for an early pay out.
Leo Franco was brought in as manager at the beginning of the season but was dismissed on the 9th October despite recording the clubs sole top flight win and two draws in his eight games in charge.
Francisco Javier Rodríguez Vílchez is now the man at the helm of Huesca but things are as of yet not going to plan and the club are in danger of beating Sporting Gijon’s record of the fewest ever points in a La Liga season when the red and whites recorded just 13 points during the 1997/98 season.
Currently Huesca boast just eight points although the season is yet to reach the official halfway stage, so the club at least have at least something still to aim for.
However, one should not be too harsh on the minnows.
The club should be applauded simply for reaching Spain’s top flight after plying their trade in the countries 4th tier as recently as the 2003/04 season.
Not only that, the club has had to endure two disappearances before finally establishing itself as a long-term football club in 1960.
Almost zero investment and years trawling through the lower reaches of Spanish football, the minnows finally started to make a splash in 2008 when the club earned promotion to the Segunda division.
It took a further ten years for the club to make it to the Primera Division and although it looks like being a short stay, the fans look set to enjoy themselves for the remaining five months of the season especially with a trip to the Bernabeu still to come.
The chances are the club will exceed Sporting Gijon’s unwanted record as just six points more are required.
All eyes may be on the battle at the top of the table but at the bottom each club has its own demons to contend with as the action sets to reach boiling point in 2019.
