Huesca vs Elche Prediction & Match Preview

Huesca vs Elche
Spain – La Liga
Date: Friday 9th April 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: El Alcoraz (Huesca).

Both of these teams will be in search of 3 points as Huesca entertain Elche on Friday evening. Huesca are in 18th and Elche are in 17th so this represents a classic ‘six pointer’ and is an important fixture on the weekend in La Liga.

Huesca won just their 4th game of the season last weekend as they beat Levante 2-0 away. That was also only Huesca’s 2nd away win of the season and the club can come into this game with a good confidence- not only did they win last weekend but they also kept a rare clean sheet.

Huesca has 24 points and are 2 points behind Elche so a win would put the hosts in a safe position and drop Elche into the relegation zone.

Elche have drawn their last 2 games in a row against Getafe and Real Betis respectively. The club are scoring goals and have only failed to score once in their last five games and that includes scoring against Real Madrid.

Away from home Elche has the 4th to worst record in the league and have managed just 1 point from their last 15. They have scored 12 goals away from home and only 3 teams have a worse record than that.

Huesca vs Elche: Prediction

This is a game littered with draws and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a close game given how much is riding on it.

Huesca do come here in a happy mood though and they would have taken a lot from beating Levante. In some ways being at home means that the ball is with the home side and they can pick their own destiny here.

A chance goal or something magic may end up being the difference here, and we will back the home team to get a very narrow win. Minimum stakes should be required because of how close this match could be.
