Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Deportivo Alaves play host to Huesca at their Estadio Mendizorrotza in the La Liga 2 round 6. The Basques aim to overtake Las Palmas in top position, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at los Azulgranas. Alaves are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Keep in mind, though, that forward Luis Rioja misses the match through suspension following his sending off in a 2-1 win over Lugo.
Huesca, on the other hand, have been impressive on home soil of late as well, with the team beating both Ibiza and Malaga at Estadio El Alcoraz, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s encounter. Alaves defeated Huesca in each of their last four meetings at Estadio Mendizorrotza, and we do not believe that the visitors are capable of putting an end to the negative trend. Juan Carlos is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute for los Azulgranas in the triumph over Malaga.
Highlighted Player (Fernando Pacheco):
Fernando Pacheco is a goalkeeper who plays for Deportivo Alaves in Primera Division. The 186-cm-tall shoot-stopper joined Real Madrid youth school at the age of 14 and it has to be noted that he made 41 appearances for Real Madrid B in Segunda Division.
However, he failed to make his debut for the first team. On 7 August. 2015 Pacheco signed a three-year contract with Deportivo Alaves and that proved to be the best decision of his career. He made his debut for the club on 22 August, 2015 in a 3-2 victory at Huesca.
The goalkeeper, who was born in Badajoz on 18 May, 1992, made 40 appearances for Alaves in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign, conceding less than one goal per match. He missed one game with injury and he was rested in a 1-1 draw with Deportivo Tarragona on the last day of the season. Pacheco is a left-footed player and his contract with Deportivo Alaves expires on 30 June, 2018.

Huesca are a Spanish club that compete in La Liga, the Spanish top flight. The club was originally founded in 1910, but in 1940 it was renamed Union Deportiva. In 1956 the club disappeared due to financial problems, but four years later Sociedad Deportiva Huesca was born.

The club welcome their rivals at El Alcoraz and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 5,500.

Huesca will make their first ever appearance in Primera Division in the 2018/2019 season.
