The Los Leones finished 16th last season after top 7 finishes in previous four seasons. Eduardo Berizzo is the man brought to fire the team back to the top half of the table and one thing they want for sure is ensure San Mames remain their fortress this season. The 2017/18 season produced just 6 wins from 19 home games, which is their worst home record in half a decade.

SD Huesca are LaLiga debutants and they showed no nerves in their first outing last week. They defeated Eibar 2-1, a team known for their tight disciplined football at home turf.

Leo Franco, the head-coach of Huesca, also made his debut as a manager last week. The former Argentine goal keeper wore the colors of Atletico Madrid, Zaragoza and Mallorca during his illustrious playing career. He also spend one season with Huesca between 2015 and 2016.

Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca Head-to-head

Monday mark the first ever competitive meeting between the two sides.

The teams drew 1-1 when they met in a friendly in 2016. Huesca’s current captain Juanjo Camacho opened the scoring, the equalizer coming from Bilbao’s captain Markel Susaeta.

Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca Prediction

Home advantage plays a huge part in these kind of games and San Mames is generally a ground where visitors find it hard to get going.

Huesca will be looking to sit tight at the backline and I am unsure if this works against a team like Bilbao.

For Bilbao, they made far too many individual errors on matchday 1, but an experienced coach like Eduardo Berizzo will be keen to have all his boxes ticked for the second week.

It is hard to look beyond anything less than a home win here, too tempting when the bookies are offering it at 7/10.
