Driven by two goals from their powerful scorer Rafa Mir, the second of them sensational, Huesca won at the Ciutat de València and set fire to the lower zone of the classification. The resistance from Huesca commanded by the charismatic Pacheta abandons its bottom position, is one point away from escaping relegation and adds a golden victory, fourth in the season, in the last and desperate sprint of ten days on the way to salvation. Supportive and committed, Huesca found the goal in the Orriols neighborhood and annulled Levante, unable to travel at its usual cruising speed due to the blockade of Huesca.
With Rafa Mir's first goal, Huesca caught early at three points forgetting their harrowing classification. The Murcian striker took advantage of the laxity of the granota defense to inflate the net of Aitor Fernández with a soft strike with the inside of his left boot. In response to a local counter without consequences, Huesca invaded Granota territory and Ferreiro, from the right profile, crossed a ball with his left-foot warped that Rafa Mir finished off, hidden near the far post, without Vezo or Son noticing his dangerous presence.

The motivation of Huesca to achieve permanence in LaLiga was imposed on the lukewarm aspiration of Levante to reach the seventh place and Europe. Pacheta's block, more convinced in achieving its horizon, left on the scoreboard and held the Granota sprinters, depriving them of the spaces that they usually exploit to knock down rivals.
El Huesca unbalanced the scoreboard, calmed down, and then blocked Levante . Their defensive system responded to the demands of the duel against one of the fastest teams in the championship. The usual granota offensive display, his characteristic counterattacks and his fluidity with the ball were short-circuited by the excellent work of the Huesca block. Pacheta's approach was the winner.
Stuck, Levante conceded the second goal in a splendid counter from Pacheta's squad. Seoane received in front of Mosquera, turned in a perfect oriented control, traveled at full speed with Levante still deployed, crossed the center of the field and filtered a diagonal pass over the race to space from Rafa Mir. The Murcian struck the ball on the exit of Aitor and scored a superb goal. His way of defining was superlative. Mir has 12 goals this season, 10 in the league and two in the Copa del Rey. He has scored five goals in the last three LaLiga dates. His goals propel the Aragonese high team on the way to salvation.
Paco López wanted to lift the game with Dani Gómez, scorer with La Rojita this week, and Enis Bardhi, who had just knocked down Germany with North Macedonia. The technician abandoned the three-center system. The granota attack was agitated, but arrivals continued to be rare and opportunities did not appear. Huesca set their feet on the ground and endured the weak local reaction. And so on until the end.
