Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Eibar, Elche will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Huesca at their Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero. Los Franjiverdes did well to record their first win of the season in midweek, and, no doubt, the hosts are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Huesca. Elche’s main goal for the 2020/21 La Liga season is to secure the elite division survival, but they need to keep on performing at high level if they are to avoid relegation to Segunda Division.
Huesca, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, but they did well to hold Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw on Matchday 4. Anyhow, a low-scoring affair is on the cards at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero as under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Huesca’s first four games of the season.
Highlighted Player (Pedro Mosquera):
Born in A Coruna, Galicia on April 21, 1988 Pedro Mosquera is a Spanish midfielder who plays for Deportivo La Coruna. After finishing his youth career at Real Madrid, he started playing for RM Castilla at senior level and he made no less than 98 appearances for the club from 2006 to 2010.

The 184-cm-tall midfielder then moved to Elche and after playing 25 games in La Liga for los Franjiverdes, he returned to La Coruna at the end of the 2014/2015 season, signing a deal with his boyhood club Deportivo. Pedro Mosquera has a contract with the Galician club which expires on June 30, 2021. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder as well.
