Huesca vs Rayo Vallecano prediction
Huesca showed one of their better performances on the road last weekend, as the team managed to get a three-pointer on the road to Alcorcon in a 2:0 victory.
They were slightly better in the first halftime but without huge chances just having far better ball possession, while the real chances came in the second part of the game.
The guests looked far sharper with the chances created, taking the lead via Juan Carlos in the 63rd minute and doubling up the lead just seven minutes later thanks to a goal from Rico, leaving no way for the home side to respond further on.
This now their second consecutive win and third in the last four rounds, is now tied up at the second position with Almeria and surely wanting a three-pointer out of this one.
The hosts continue to miss forward Lopez (6/1) and two long-term absentees, defender Insua and midfielder Doukoure both without playing so far in the season.
Rayo Vallecano continued their poor momentum with a 2:1 defeat away to Real Oviedo last Sunday afternoon.
They were back int eh scoreline already in the first minute and even though they managed to level up really soon thanks to a goal from Embarba, they didn't manage to revert the situation into their favor.
With exception of a bit more of the ball possession, they weren't as agile and create as a team with the ball possession should, conceding the second goal in the latter phase of the match from a penalty spot.
It was their sixth game with no victory, second consecutive loss and the team is now four points above the relegation zone. Away from home they have one victory in the last rounds, so this remains a bit of a challenge for them.
Goalkeeper Garcia (7/0) is out for the guests, as well as defender Saveljich (18/2) and midfielders Comesana (10/1) and Garcia (14/2) and forward Bebe (12/3).
Huesca is now in a good momentum and their stability should be too match to cope with for the visiting team.
The hosts played rock-solid in front of their own fans and rarely allow their opponents to create good chances actually.
They should be able to break the opponents far easier, securing a three-pointer way before the last phase of the match.
