Eduardo Berizzo could take advantage of the opportunity to give rest to his main players for the league clash against Girona next weekend. The Argentine manager will be desperate to see his men bouncing back in that Primera Division clash.

We can thus say Huesca will be the more motivated side here as they certainly want to fix the impression after a tough 4-0 defeat at San Mames. They have really been struggling to keep things quiet at the back and a result here could raise the spirits in the dressing room ahead of the upcoming challenges in the top flight of the Spanish football.

Huesca vs Athletic Bilbao: Head-to-head

Huesca held Bilbao to a 2-2 draw away at San Mames when the two teams played each other at the start of the Primera Division campaign in late-August.

They two sides previously played each other just once.

The occasion was a pre-season friendly back in July 2016 and the result was 1-1.

Huesca vs Athletic Bilbao: Prediction

Huesca are winless in last 14 matches in all competitions and they sit at the rock-bottom of the La Liga ladder as a consequence. Francisco’s men only claimed 7 points in 14 matches in their maiden season in the elite class of the Spanish football.

The hosts shipped two or more goals in all of past four games across competitions. However, Bilbao have also been anything but successful travellers so far in the season. They lost three on the bounce away from home in La Liga.

Since the visitors will likely be without most of their key players at El Alcoraz, we will back the home win at 2.70 as the main betting option.

Huesca vs Athletic Bilbao: Bet Tips

  • Huesca to win @ 2.70 (27/10)
  • Huesca or Draw @ 1.50 (1/2).
