Atletico Madrid vs Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Tuesday, 25 September 2018
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Tuesday’s action of the Spanish Primera Liga 6th round is going to be wrapped up with a clash between Atletico Madrid and Huesca.
Home side is still searching for their form as they’ve booked just two victories in the first five rounds. They’ve already suffered a defeat and their fierce rivals real Madrid and Barcelona are five points ahead of them.
Jan Oblak and the lads are keeping their defence tight enough, however their teammates from the final third should need to start converting their chances into goals more frequently.
Atletico Madrid have already allowed a point when playing at their ground as Eibar managed to steal a 1-1 draw. The hosts need to stabilize their form if they want to get involved in the title race.
Huesca opened their campaign pretty successfully by snatching four points from the first two rounds. However, their heavy 8-2 defeat away to Barcelona totally disrupted them and they have lost three times in a row.
Newly promoted visitors failed to score in the last two occasions and they played both matches at home pitch. They are just a point ahead of the danger zone and if they want to keep their heads above the water, Leonardo Franco’s side needs to improve their game urgently.
Atletico Madrid vs Huesca: Head-to-head
Since this is the premier participation in the Primera Liga for the visitors, this is going to be the first head to head clash of these two sides.
They didn’t have the chance to face each other in Copa del Rey matches so far.
Atletico Madrid vs Huesca: Prediction
Atletico Madrid are strong favourites in this one and it would be very surprising if the visitors manage to get away undefeated from this clash. Since the odds for the home win are low, we believe home side is going to secure their advantage already in the first half.
Although the hosts have been involved in low scoring matches so far, Huesca’s defence allowed the highest number of goals so far. We don’t believe they will be able to resist Diego Costa and the lads and the crowd should be able to enjoy an efficient clash.
