Huesca vs Valencia
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
Valencia is fighting on two fronts right now. While they are trying to keep safe the Europa League spot they are already in possession of, with a chance to get into the top-four, and thus the Champions League itself, they need to deal with the second leg of the Europa League semis against Arsenal, in the mid-week.
Their trip to Arsenal saw them lose for a 3-1 scoreline. But, importantly, the team managed an away goal. It’d take some effort, but they will try their best to overcome this scoreline at home, this week.
It helps that the team is taking on the 20th placed team in the table, Huesca. The bottom-tier team needs to overcome seven points from the remaining nine to play for and is a frontrunner to get relegated.

Huesca vs Valencia Prediction
Huesca was winless in eight of their last nine matches, and in 15 of their last 19 at home. They are officially the worst team in the league as of now, and consequentially, is placed at the bottom-most. With just nine points left to play for, the teams need to overcome a deficit of seven points – a statistically improbable ask for a team that has won just six of their 35 league ties.
As such, they are under immense pressure, and hope has really run dry. Valencia, who are fighting to consolidate their European spot, will take advantage of this scenario. Moreover, they will try to get on top of things early on, considering they have a crucial mid-week European game against Arsenal.
In addition, Valencia won the sole game between these teams and scored two goals in them as well – giving themselves a 100% winning record in h2h ties. Expect the Europa-League-final-four team to easily win against the worst squad in La Liga.
