Sevilla vs Huesca Preview
This Saturday in LaLiga, in-form Sevilla are bidding to extend their winning streak as bottom club Huesca pay them a visit at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. The hosts are fresh from a fine win in the Copa del Rey in midweek and will be expected to chalk up maximum points here.
This now has the potential to be another fabulous season for Sevilla with more silverware looking a distinct possibility. They will now be the favourites to win the Copa del Rey having beaten Barcelona 2-0 in their Semi-Final 1st Leg in midweek but it could yet be a tricky 2nd Leg that awaits them at Camp Nou.
Julen Lopetegui will have one eye on the visit of Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in midweek and that’s perhaps the only thing that may open up an opportunity for Huesca here. That’s because Sevilla have been in fantastic form, reeling off 7 straight wins in all competitions and they’ve gone 6 without conceding.
They face a Huesca side that did score 3 and claimed only their second league win of the season in their most recent away game. That victory at Real Valladolid, offered them a glimmer of hope in their battle to beat the drop but they couldn’t get anything from their home game with Real Madrid last weekend.
Pacheta would have been frustrated by the manner of the goals conceded against Los Blancos as much as anything. Two set-pieces and two Raphael Varane strikes rather than attacking brilliance from the visitors sealed a 2-1 win in a game Huesca had briefly led.
Head to Head
- Last 3 Competitive Meetings: 2 Sevilla Wins, 1 Huesca Win.
- Sevilla have won 2 of the 3 top flight meetings.
- The only Huesca victory via a 2-1 margin at El Alcoraz in March 2019.
Jesus Navas and Marcos Acuna are both carrying injuries and are unlikely to feature here. The same goes for key man Lucas Ocampos. The front three could see significant changes from the cup game in midweek.
Pablo Insua is available again for Huesca but may struggle to break into the starting XI.
Predicted Sevilla Starting Lineup:
Bono – Rekik, Carlos, Kounde, Vidal – Rakitic, Gudelj, Torres – Gomez, De Jong, Munir (4-3-3)
Predicted Huesca Starting Lineup:
Fernandez – Galan, Silva, Siovas, Pulido, Maffeo – Seoane, Doumbia, Rico – Okazaki, Mir (5-3-2)
Sevilla vs Huesca Predictions
Score Prediction: Sevilla 2-1 Huesca
With a few injury concerns and thoughts on the Champions League, this will be far from Sevilla’s strongest XI. Huesca have some quality going forward and they look capable of ending the home team’s run of 6 straight clean sheets but overall Sevilla have enough depth to bring players in and still win the game.
