Huesca vs Alaves predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis, betting tips and predicted line-ups as the hosts look to climb off the bottom.
DATE/TIME – Saturday 16th March, 13:00 (Spanish Time)
STADIUM – El Alcoraz
COMPETITION – La Liga
The first game on Saturday in La Liga comes from El Alcoraz and it’s a real opportunity for Huesca to finally climb off the bottom of the Spanish top flight. They’ve done brilliantly to claw themselves back to the sides above them but it’s still going to take a huge effort to beat the drop and they need to make their home games count.
Huesca’s hopes here are hampered by the suspensions of Damian Musto and Javi Galan while they have a few injury problems too. That’s not ideal given they don’t have an enormous squad, certainly in terms of quality in reserve. They were a little fortunate to beat Sevilla in their most recent home game but missed the chance to climb off the bottom last time out as they lost 2-1 at Getafe.
Alaves have plenty of incentive of their own to go for the win here. Despite being written off, even by their own coach at times, they remain in European contention heading into the final ten games of the season. Champions League qualification may be slightly beyond them but they’d move to a point off 4th placed Getafe if they win this and would guarantee they end the weekend in 5th place.
Burgui is sidelined through injury for the visitors but he isn’t a regular by any means and they should be able to call upon their strongest eleven here. Abelardo’s men will come with three points in mind but a close game does look likely judging by the recent results of these clubs.
Huesca vs Alaves Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Alaves
Betting Tip: Alaves 0.0 Asian Handicap at 29/25 with Spin Palace Sports (18+)
With Huesca missing a few players, this could go the way of Alaves who have found some form again. Certainly they are solid enough defensively to keep Huesca’s attacking players quiet and they are just starting to get back to the early season situation where they were causing a lot of problems from out wide. This could be another good day for Alaves in what has been an excellent campaign from the Basques.
