Huesca vs Rayo Vallecano Preview

Huesca vs Rayo Vallecano

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – El Alcoraz

Date: 14th September 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This is a big day for Huesca who have been playing all of their games until now on the road while their stadium is being renovated to catch up with La Liga standards.

They play host to Rayo Vallecano who also have their own stadium problems to solve in this game.

The visitors’ stadium has been closed down and they had their last game postponed – as a result, they have played just two games this season, all on the road and they lost both making them the only team who is yet to pick up a point this season.

Huesca were brave in their last game and decided to attack Barcelona from the start.   That backfired and they ended up losing 8-2, however, that courage should help them as the season goes on.

Taking four points from three games is still not so bad when you consider that they have played all of those matches away from home.

If the hosts want to survive relegation this season, they will have to make their home a tough place to visit, and this game offers them the chance to do so.

Huesca do have enough attacking intent to cause their visitors problems but the final result will hinge on how many of their chances they can convert.

Huesca have won their last 4 home games against Rayo, despite conceding in 3 of them.

5 of the last 6 meetings overall have produced over 2.5 goals with both teams winning their home fixture in the Segunda last term.

Rayo Vallecano come into this game as favourites with bookmakers despite the problems they have encountered this season.

Betting markets suggest this could be a lively game from a goals scored perspective so expect an open game from the start.
