Huesca vs Eibar
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 18.30 UK/ 19.30 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Eibar is in the 13th position in the league table but sits just six points away from a spot in the Europa League. Given that with just 18 points left to play for, it’s a very tough ask to manage to get this surplus, but they have the luxury of beginning their quest against the weakest team in the competition, Huesca.
The hosts of this tie, meanwhile, secured an unexpected draw against none other than the famed Barca in their last match-day. The latter may have fielded a mostly inexperienced 11, and with absolutely no chemistry due to the lack of common playing time, but nonetheless a point against the potential treble winners gives a team confidence and credibility.

Huesca vs Eibar Prediction
Eibar has a chance to make it to Europe, and with their safety in the league practically guaranteed, the team will go for it. An additional reason to do so is the fact that Huesca is the worst team in the league, and is placed dead-last in the table.
Moreover, Eibar was unbeaten in 20 of their last 25 matches and avoided a loss in nine of their last thirteen road trips. Meanwhile, Huesca is winless in their last six games. Also, since December of last year, Eibar has lost just four times – three of which were against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao.
As such, expect them to avoid a loss in this tie too. But Huesca is desperate to avoid relegation and will fight tooth and nail for it. In addition, they had won the reverse fixture of this tie, and Eibar has a string of draws to their name, that has considerably affected their chances for playoffs.
Finally, Eibar conceded in their last 11 away ties, and in 22 of their last 24. Also, only once have they kept a clean sheet at this stadium, which was in a friendly, however. With Huesca netting goals in every single official game, the chances for both teams to score are sky high.
