Celta Vigo vs Huesca Prediction & Match Preview

Celta Vigo vs Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 1 December 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Abanca-Balaidos (Vigo).

Celta will have a nice opportunity to rebound from back-to-back league defeats to Real Madrid and Real Sociedad on Saturday afternoon when they host the rock-bottomed Huesca at Balaidos. The visitors started their debut season in the elite class in a promising fashion, but they quickly began to feel the strength of a higher division football.

Huesca took just seven points in 13 rounds and they are as many as four points shy of the penultimate-placed Rayo Vallecano coming into this fixture at Balaidos. They lost four and drew two of past six games in the league conceding two or more goals in five matches along the way. Furthermore, Francisco’s men suffered another devastating loss on Wednesday evening when they fell 4-0 away at Athletic Bilbao in Copa del Rey tie.

Celta Vigo vs Huesca: Head-to-head

This will be the first head to head encounter between the two teams in six years.

It is interesting to mention that Huesca have a positive H2H record with three wins and draws apiece and two defeats in eight games against the Sky Blues.

Celta won only one and lost three of four home outings against Huesca.

Celta Vigo vs Huesca: Prediction

Both teams have been very easy to break down lately and we have reasons to expect goals when they come face to face in the first game of the day on Saturday. The hosts allowed as many as nine goals in past three league affairs. They did score six in the process though.

Huesca have been far less impressive in the final third which is why we see this tie as a perfect opportunity for the Sky Blues to return on the winning ways after a series of tough fixtures. The home win can be regarded as a banker bet at 1.61, while we will also back the Miguel Cardoso’s side to bag two or more goals at the odds of 1.66.
