Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca
Spain – La Liga
Date: Friday, 18 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio San Mamés.
The Basque club are one of the oldest and most experienced in the Spanish top flight at the moment. They have also been one of the most competitive teams in the country over the course of their existence, and will settle for nothing but a top-tier finish.
However, they are currently going through a troubling stretch, and desperately need a huge win to get things back to track. And just as if on cue, they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the league.
The Azulgranas are a newly promoted squad, and so far have posted a total of just one win on the board. They are also placed 19th in the table, and have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the contest – barring Real Betis.
In addition, they also have a terrible h2h record against this opponent over the years. By all means, expect the desperate Gaizka Garitano’s men to go after the three points, and to be successful in that task as well.
Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Basque Nation have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent in the last decade, and a 100% winning record in the past three years.
- They have registered a combined scorecard of 9-0 from the preceding three clashes.
- At home, they have scored two or more goals in every single meeting so far.
- It’s been three years since they have conceded a single goal from this rival.
Athletic Bilbao vs Huesca: Prediction
Garitano’s men lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Real Madrid. In the meantime, Michel Munoz’s men registered a 1-0 win at home against Alaves.
However, understand that the Alaves victory has been the only one for Azulgranas this campaign, and they are placed second to last in the table.
They also have a perfect losing record in h2h encounters in the past three years, and have conceded four or more goals in all but one such clash in the period.
Meanwhile, their counterparts are one of the best teams in the La Liga, and are desperate for a win. They also had won three of their preceding four appearances at home, and had scored two or more goals in these three fixtures.
By all means, expect Athletic Bilbao to emerge victorious this Friday.
