Rayo Vallecano vs SD Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 20th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Campo de Futbol de Vallecas (Madrid).
The bottom two teams take on each other, in what could be classified as a relegation play-off. Six matches remain in the league, and Huesca and Rayo are seven and five points away from the cut-off. Considering they are direct rivals in the race to avoid the boot to Segunda, a win in this fixture will be worth more than the three points on offer.
Huesca managed to draw their game against Barcelona last week, but there’s more to it though. Barca fielded an inexperienced set of players, with an eye on their Champions League game. Credit to Huesca though, as they took advantage of the opportunity and posted a point on the board.

Rayo Vallecano vs SD Huesca Prediction
H2h encounters firmly put the hosts of the day as the favorites. Seven of the last eight wins went to the teams that played in front of their home crowd, and eight of the last nine games saw such teams recording two or more goals. Going on, teams on the road failed to score in two of the last four meetings.
At this venue, Rayo has been the undisputed squad against Huesca. They have never lost a game against the latter, here. Moreover, Rayo has always found the back of the net in front of their home crowd, and did so twice or more in the last four, and thrice or more in three of the last four attempts. On the other hand, Huesca failed to score in three of their last five matches at this venue.
Going on, Huesca is the worst team on the road. Without a doubt, count on the hosts to dole out a win.
But do keep in mind that Huesca is desperate. They realize they are facing at least a year in the lower division if they do not perform well in the next six match-days. Also, they have netted goals in seven of their last eight matches.
BTTS provides a good value if backed.
