Alaves vs Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 11 November 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mendizorroza (Vitoria-Gazteiz).
Alaves host the rock-bottomed Huesca in the first game of Sunday’s La Liga schedule at Estadio de Mendizorroza. The occasion should provide a nice opportunity for Babazorross to rebound from a 2-1 defeat at Eibar and get their league campaign up and running with a victory over one of the weakest sides in the competition.
The hosts are still enjoying the season in spite of the mentioned loss to Eibar. They sit at the sky-high 5th place in the league ladder and they were actually on a thread of three consecutive league wins beforehand. Abelardo’s men took most of points in front of the home crowd where they won three and drew two of five games so far in the season.
Alaves vs Huesca: Head-to-head
This will only be the fifth official head to head clash between the two teams.
Alaves were more successful winning three of losing one of four H2H games with Heusca when teams battled it out in Segunda Division.
The two sides met each other this summer during the pre-season in a friendly which was won by Huesca (2-1).
Alaves vs Huesca: Prediction
The visitors took four points from opening two games in their maiden season in the top flight of the Spanish football. Nevertheless, they have not been pulling up any trees ever since, taking just a single point from following eight league ties.
Francisco’s men were just moments away from bringing such a dreadful thread to an end last weekend when they were unlucky to concede a 91st minute leveller from Jorge Molina. They thus only drew 1-1 to Getafe at Estadio El Alcoraz.
Huesca generally showed improvements in their displays of late. They lost only narrowly to Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan before the aforementioned 1-1 draw to Getafe last time out. However, we just have to take the home win pick at the 1.83 odds here knowing Francisco’s side lost four on the trot on travels.
