Huesca vs Real Valladolid
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – El Alcoraz
Date: 1st February 2019
Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT
This is arguably the biggest game of the season in the bottom half of the Spanish league table as these sides look to get their season on track and avoid relegation.
Huesca have to win this game to stand a chance of avoiding relegation this season, however, Valladolid would be hoping to get the points and fire themselves into the top half of the Spanish league table.
Huesca are currently rock-bottom of the league and they look doomed for the drop, however, with many more games to go, their fans should feel that they can eventually avoid the drop.
They haven’t looked like escaping relegation for much of this season, but their 0-0 draw in their last game would have raised their hopes and they will be keen to earn more points at home in this game.
Valladolid also got a morale-boosting result in their last league game as they came from behind to beat Celta Vigo.
That result has helped their chances of survival but the race down at the bottom of the La Liga table is so tight that almost no one from 10th position to 20th is safe from relegation and that race looks set to go to the wire this season.
Bookmakers have priced Huesca up as slight favourites however the odds are close and Valladolid will have their supporters.
Goal markets point to a low-scoring game as under 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Alex Gallar and Enes Unal are joint favourites to score the opening goal of the game.
