Malaga vs Huesca Preview


Malaga vs Huesca predictions

Spanish football’s crisis club Malaga is back in action this Friday at La Rosaleda as the Segunda Division kicks off again. Huesca are the visitors with Michel’s side making a strong push for an immediate return to the top flight after their debut season in LaLiga ended in relegation in 2019.

Huesca are in 4th place heading into this match, just five points off the automatic promotion positions. If they can quickly settle back into action and get some early wins under their belt, they will certainly fancy they can challenge for that and they look well placed to at least secure a play-off slot with an 8 point advantage on 7th placed Mirandes. Malaga meanwhile are down in 15th, just 3 points above the relegation zone with a bunch of off-field issues also casting a cloud over the club.

Even before the coronavirus outbreak, Malaga were in financial difficulties with warring factions competing for control of the club. They’ve been forced to lay off a host of non-playing staff over this period but on the pitch at least, things had been looking up with just 2 defeats in 15 league games heading into the break in the season.

Huesca were 2-0 winners at home to an out of form Fuenlabrada side in their most recent game. However they had lost 3 out of 5 prior to that as their automatic promotion challenge started to wobble a bit. All things considered though it has been a pretty good season for them with former Rayo boss Míchel bringing stability to the club after a solitary top flight season where they struggled to compete and saw coaches come and go.

Malaga vs Huesca Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Malaga’s players have done a good job focusing on the task at hand with so much uncertainty behind the scenes, not to mention the unusual circumstances that led to a managerial switch in January. Huesca may be the better side overall but they haven’t travelled well this term, winning just 3 of their 15 road games in the league and this one looks like it could well end up all square.
