Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca Prediction & Match Preview

Athletic Bilbao vs SD Huesca
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 28th November 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio San Mamés (Bilbao).

Both Athletic Bilbao and Huesca will be keen to register overdue win when they meet in the first round of Copa del rey this Wednesday.

The teams come with similar state of mind, low on confidence with their only competitive win of the season dating back to matchday 1 of the La Liga campaign.

Athletic Bilbao drew 8 and lost 4 since and stay inside the relegation zone of La Liga table.

Things have been worse for the newly promoted Huesca as they sit at the foot of the table after managing a nominal 4 draws and 8 losses from the 12 games since.

One of the other similarity between the sides is a porus defense, the San Mames faithful conceded 20 so far or in 12 of their 13 games so far, while Huesca let in a whooping 27 goals.

Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca: Head-to-head

Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca: Prediction

Wins are hard to come by for either sides and thereby we must be careful in picking a full-time winner here. With a number of Champions League and EFL Championship games around the horizon, this is a game I will avoid in my 1×2 selection.

At the same time, btts lovers have a excellent tip to bank on with high stakes. Bilbao have just 1 clean sheet to their game this season, while Huesca have none so far. Either sides have been effective in front of goal this season, and this is why both teams to score is a top bet to select from Wednesday’s round of games.
