Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Huesca and Espanyol go head to head at Estadio El Alcoraz in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Sunday’s program. Los Azulgranas aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Amorebieta and they are likely to rely on their solid defence against the promotion hopefuls. Ruben Pulido limped off with injury in the last league match, with Jeremy Blasco likely to step up, while there are no other selection worries in the home team.
Los Periquitos, on the other hand, are eager to put an end to their three-game winless run in Segunda Division. A man to keep an eye on in the Catalan outfit will be Javi Puado, who scored a brace at the weekend, whereas all Nico Melamed, Omar El Hilali, and Pol Lozano remain on the sidelines with injuries. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the cards as Espanyol do not seem to be at the top of their game.
Highlighted Team (Huesca):
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. Huesca are well known for their blaugrana colors as their founding members were Barcelona fans.
The club welcome their rivals at El Alcoraz and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 5,500. Despite the fact that El Alcoraz can hold up to 5,500 people in December 2014 7,600 spectators watched the game between Huesca and Barcelona. Huesca will make their first ever appearance in Primera Division in the 2018/2019 season.
The likes of Leo Franco, Luis Sastre and Ruben Castro are some of the most notable footballers that played for Huesca. Real Zaragoza are considered Huesca’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in Derbi Aragones.
