Huesca vs Ath Bilbao Prediction & Betting tips
The Spanish Monday evening match is this round for Huesca and Athletic Bilbao, who will compete against each other in the Alcoraz. Both teams need the points in their fight against relegation.
Huesca has a hard time in La Liga. That was to be expected, of course, because the redblues make their debut this season at the highest level in Spain, something that the province club had never dreamed of until recently.
Huesca is, of course, still downgrading candidate numero uno, but thanks to nice victories at Real Valladolid (4-0) and Girona (0-2), the competition is suddenly back in sight and life retention suddenly comes to the fore. “The recent victories give us confidence,” said defender Xabier Etxeita. “We play every game as if it were our last.” Monday evening we can expect a good portion of fighting spirit from the home team. With injury cases like Pablo Insua and Gonzalo Melero, coach Francisco has to miss two important players, though Manchester City mercenary Yangel Herrera returns to midfield.
Not so long ago, Athletic Bilbao was sitting at the Christmas dinner with kinking knees. The Basques, together with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, are the only club that is continuously active at the highest level, but that status threatened to be endangered. In the meantime, the red-whites have once again taken some distance from the relegation zone, thanks to the scoreless draw of last week against FC Barcelona, although the team of coach Gaizka Garitano is far from safe harbor.
The slight advance of Athletic Bilbao is mainly due to the defensive solidity. In five of the last nine league matches, the Basques were able to keep their goal clean. In an attacking way, however, it keeps on muddling, because the last five duels were not able to make Los Leones more than just a goal in a game. In addition, the visitors are somewhat battered on Monday evening, because due to suspensions and injuries players like Aritz Aduriz, Dani Garcia and Oscar de Marcos have to pass the away match against Huesca.
