Huesca vs Celta Vigo
Spanish La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 3 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Huesca are catching their last train in the battle for avoiding the immediate return to the second division football on Wednesday when they play host to Celta Vigo in a genuine relegation six-pointer at Estadio El Alcoraz.
The hosts grew in both form and confidence in the past couple of months, but the revival came a bit too late. They are seven points short of the safe zone with nine games left to play and a win against fellow strugglers Celta Vigo is the only possible option to give them a glimmer of hope.
Francisco’s troops will try and build on a strong display in a narrow 3-2 defeat to Real Madrid on Sunday evening at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Huesca were very dangerous in the final third on the occasion. Two goals against the likes of Real Madrid best confirm their decent attacking form coming into this clash with the Sky Blues.
Huesca vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head
Teams have three wins, draws and defeats apiece coming into their landmark 10th head to head encounter.
Celta picked up a comfortable 2-0 victory when they last locked horns in early-December last year.
It was teams’ first H2H clash since the 2011/12 Segunda Division campaign.
Three of four H2H meetings at Estadio El Alcoraz ended without a winner.
Huesca vs Celta Vigo: Prediction
Celta had a massively underwhelming campaign in this term of Primera Division. They, however, managed to end a three-loss run on Saturday evening thanks to a superb second-half display and a huge comeback from 0-2 to 3-2 against direct rivals Villarreal at Balaidos.
Fran Escriba’s main star Iago Aspas marked his return from a lengthy injury with a brace against the Yellow Submarine. He should have plenty of space to deliver past one of league’s weakest defensive lines which allowed three goals in each of last two league affairs.
Backing goals at both ends is a must based on everything written above. We will alternatively go with Iago Aspas to score anytime for the visitors at 2.10 odds.
