Huesca vs Rayo Vallecano
Spain – La Liga
Date: Friday, 14 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz, Huesca.
The international break came just at the right time for the likes of Huesca and Rayo Vallecano.
They are set to open the action in the Matchday No 4 on Friday evening at Estadio El Alcoraz desperate for the much-needed confidence after recent failures.
The hosts opened the debut campaign in La Liga in some style, winning four points from matches against Eibar and Athletic Bilbao away from home.
However, they ten ran into Barcelona conceding as many as eight goals in a Camp Nou disaster.
However, the head coach Leonardo Franco has reasons to be satisfied with his men’s attacking displays as league debutants bagged two goals in all of three away fixtures so far in the campaign.
The clash against Rayo will actually be their inaugural home tie ever in the top flight of the Spanish football.
Huesca vs Rayo Vallecano: Head-to-head
These two sides battled it out in the second division football last year.
Both teams picked up home wins in the previous term of Segunda Division.
Overall, it’s Rayo who lead the head to head tie by two wins, but they only won 2 and lost 4 of 6 away matches with Huesca.
Huesca vs Rayo Vallecano: Prediction
Unlike Huesca who managed to collect points so far in the season, Los Franjirrojos are yet to perform such an accomplishment.
They have a game in hand (the match against Athletic Bilbao was postponed) and the head coach Michel can defend himself by a rough schedule as the opposition included the likes of Sevilla and Atletico Madrid so far.
Whilst Ray looked completely disorganized against Los Rojiblancos on the opening day (1-4 loss at home), the second round saw them offer a much stronger resistance to the likes of Atletico Madrid who needed a deflection goal from Antoine Griezmann after a set-piece to barely break their resistance.
To sum it all up, Huesca left a better impression so far in the season in spite of the catastrophe at Camp Nou. They notched two or more goals in each of last four home games against Rayo and as well in all of three league games so far.
We thus see the best value in backing the hosts to net two or more goals here at 2.10.
