SD Huesca vs Sevilla
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Saturday, 2nd March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
After taking on the league-toppers Barcelona, Sevilla travels to Huesca to lock horns with the bottom-most team in the table. The loss inflicted by the virtuoso performance of Lionel Messi must have made its mark on the travelers, and it’s a certainty that they will try to unload their frustration on the poor bottom-dwellers.
Huesca has relegation all but confirmed. With just less than a third of the season remaining, they are four points below the 19th placed Vallecano, and six points off the safety line, which is currently being inhabited by Celta Vigo. In the race for safety, Huesca has to deal with the likes of Villarreal, Celta Vigo etc – which by definition would be a losing cause from the beginning.

SD Huesca vs Sevilla Prediction
The visitors will be desperate to assert their mark on the league once more, after their loss against Barcelona. The manner of the loss must have been more hurting than the loss itself. After securing the lead twice, they had to concede defeat to a great display and comeback by their guests.
Since the team has been allotted the 20th side in the league table for this next fixture, it’s a given that Sevilla will look for the win right away, and a huge one at that. Huesca is already down on morale, considering their impending relegation. And along with that, they were winless in a mammoth 24 of their last 27 games, and in 12 of their last 14 home ties. To add further insult, they have a 100% losing record in h2h ties against Sevilla as well. The team is also the worst home team in La Liga.
Considering Alaves, along with whom Sevilla shares 37 points, has a difficult fixture this weekend against Villarreal, it’s a great opportunity for the visitors to surge ahead and may even lay a claim on a Champions League spot.
Sevilla will be further buoyed by the fact they recorded a tough away win in their just-concluded Europa League tie against Lazio.
All in all, the visitors are the huge favorites for this tie, and considering their mood to record a huge win, backing a goal in the second half by them gives good value.
