Huesca vs Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 16 March 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Huesca grabbed themselves a survival lifeline with a couple of surprising wins in recent weeks. They stunned Sevilla 2-1 in the previous home fixture and are just four points shy of safe zone in spite of the fact they still hold the rock-bottom of the league ladder.
Francisco’s men continued with their fine displays last weekend when they were unlucky to drop a one-goal lead and lose 2-1 away at fourth-placed Getafe. They generally played very well on the home patch lately and will head into this Alaves tie encouraged by three wins in last five home matches in Primera Division.
Huesca vs Alaves: Head-to-head
The head to head record speaks in Alaves ‘ favour as the visitors won 5 and lost 2 of 7 encounters against Huesca over the course of history,
Nevertheless, the hone court advantage played a massive role in this match-up as Huesca won two and lost one of three home ties against Babazorros.
Both teams scored in four of last five head to head affairs, including this term’s 2-1 win for Alaves at Estadio de Mendizorroza.
Huesca vs Alaves: Prediction
The visitors are enjoying one of the best La Liga campaigns in their history. They still dream of the Champions League being only four points short of fourth-placed Getafe after 27 rounds of the competition.
Babazorros go into this unbeaten in five successive league outings. However, they won just two in the process. They failed to see off Eibar in a 1-1 draw seven days ago at Estadio de Mendizorroza. Alaves lost as many as 7 of 14 away fixtures this season and we can hardly see them as favourites against the rock-bottomed side in spite of the look at the league standings.
The draw seems to be as the most logical betting option based on everything written above. Huesca not to lose is the safest bet at 1.42 odds.
