Real Madrid shot with pride to win 1-2 at Huesca and Raphael Varane, author of two goals, avoided another shipwreck for the white team and gave air to his compatriot Zinedine Zidane.
The Madrid team was obliged to win the victory of El Alcoraz to maintain the minimum options it still has to fight for the league title and achieved its seventh victory at home, although suffering a lot, against Huesca that ran into the superiority of its rival in the second part and that he also had opportunities to increase his account.
Real Madrid, after the fiasco against Levante, went warned to Huesca, where, after a balanced first half, did not give margin to surprise to the team of José Rojo "Pacheta" who, with the defeat, runs the risk of seeing how their distance from the salvation zone increases if their closest rivals manage to score this day.
Last week's victory in the Valladolid field had raised the morale of the Aragonese to the point of thinking that they could be surprised at the irregular moment of the Madrid team, but they ran into the harsh reality of their opponent's potential And although the Whites had stumbled this season with several of the teams fighting for permanence, on this occasion it was insurmountable in the second half for Huesca.
The Huesca team came out with high pressure that caused visitors losses that meant that in the first four minutes they had finished up to three times on the Madrid goal.
Real Madrid was gradually avoiding errors in the exit of the ball to become owner of the ball, which made Huesca take shelter at the edge of their area with the lines very close together.
Zidane's team tried to open the local wall by overturning the game on the left side, where Vinicius was the most active man.
His was one of the two scoring chances that Real Madrid had in the first 45 minutes. It was in the 25th, after a good individual action and with a Vaseline that came out narrowly. The other was played by a Karim Benzema abducted by the Huesca defense and who did not appear until minute 34 with a shot with a thread that was saved by goal Alvaro Fernández.
The story of the start of the game was repeated after the break with a plethora of Barça team that sent a ball to the crossbar with a shot from Mikel Rico, achieved 1-0 with a goal from Javi Galán two minutes later and had a third chance in the 50 with another shot, by Rafa Mir, to the crossbar.
They were the best minutes from Huesca, but shortly after, in the 55th, and after a free-kick from Benzema that hit the crossbar, Raphael Varane imposed his greatest stature on a ball that fell to lead to equalize the score.
Aware that the draw did not serve them, Huesca and Real Madrid sought the rival goal with more conviction. The game became an accumulation of chances for both of them, but especially for the Whites.
However, sometimes the lack of finishing efficiency and other times the local goal forced Zidane's team to suffer.
The saving 1-2 for Real Madrid was also scored by Varane, after taking a free kick in the 84th minute and taking advantage of a rebound from the local goalkeeper after a header from Casemiro.
