Espanyol Prediction

Espanyol bring a three match unbeaten run into this encounter having drawn with Villarreal and Valencia in 2-2 and 0-0 draws respectively which were either side of a 2-1 home win over Rayo Vallecano, so they’ll be reasonably confident of getting a result at their RCDE Stadium in Friday night’s clash against bottom club Huesca here.

The hosts sit in a lowly 14th place on the La Liga ladder but they possess a valuable six point cushion ahead of third from bottom club Villarreal prior to this weekend’s proceedings in the Spanish top flight.

Espanyol have registered eight league wins to date, seven of which have been recorded on home turf amidst an overall record of 7-0-4 15/16, and they’ve recently gained wins against Leganes and Rayo Vallecano despite some losses along the way as the hosts have tended not to deal in draws at home this season!

The hosts possess forward Iglesias (10 goals) up front who looks the most likely anytime goalscorer for Espanyol in this clash.


Key-Facts – Espanyol v Huesca

  • 7 of Espanyol’s 8 league wins in La Liga have been recorded at home
  • Huesca are six points adrift of safety at the bottom of La Liga
  • Huesca have failed to score in 5 of their 12 away matches to date


Huesca Prediction

As mentioned earlier in this article, Huesca sit bottom of La Liga and find themselves in real trouble as the visitors are six points adrift of safety as they prepare for a difficult looking away trip to face Espanyol this Friday night.

Despite their problems, Huseca have recently recorded wins against Real Valladolid 4-0 at home and a 2-0 win away at Girona which has given the relegation candidates hope of escaping the drop down to La Liga 2, but they’ve also fallen to losses against Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao which has offset these recent victories.

Huesca’s away record stands at a pretty ordinary looking 2-2-8 11/24 as they’ve struggled for any sort of consistency on their travels overall in this campaign, but a point at Real Sociedad in a 0-0 draw and a 2-0 win at Girona have seen an upturn in fortunes on their travels recently.

It remains to be seen whether Huesca can keep this run going, particularly away from home, against Espanyol in this encounter, but they need to start scoring goals on the road as they’ve failed to score in 5 of their 12 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Espanyol should have enough in their locker to dispose of Huesca here though.
