Huesca vs Albacete
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Thursday, 12 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Huesca’s form hit a huge stumbling block of late. The hosts dropped down to third place in the Segunda Division standings after a series of seven consecutive matches without a victory. They still have realistic chances of making the top two at the end of the regular season, but Joan Francesc Rubi desperately needs to turn a corner and find the way to start a winning thread. Can midweek’s tie with Albacete be the one which would initiate a potential renaissance for Huesca?
The visitors generally played hot and cold throughout the entire season. They now sit 13th in the league ladder and it seems they have nowhere to go in the remaining nine games of the campaign. The promotional playoffs are as many as ten points away, while they are eight points above the drop zone line. Enrique Martin has reasons to be satisfied with the improvements in his team’s defensive displays in the last couple of weeks. Nonetheless, the attacking line failed to deliver ion three of last four league ties. Albacete will head intro this off the back of a 0-1 home defeat to the second-placed Rayo Vallecano.
Huesca also had huge troubles breaking the deadlock recently. They scored just once in last four league outings. The poor streak was connected to the absence of Gonzalo Melero. Team’s tops corer skipped three games in March due to suspension. He made the return in Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Real Zaragoza and he will be the one top look after here against Albacete.

Huesca vs Albacete: Prediction
