Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
High-flying Granada will look to extend their winning run to five games when they take on Granada in the Segunda Division round 28. Huesca sit in the middle of the table, ten points behind the playoffs places, meaning that Sunday’s clash is of big importance for the home side. Defender Ruben Pulido is banned for the match, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Los Granadinos, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, and seeing that the club chiefs reinforced the squad in the January transfer window, away win should be considered. Ricardo Sanchez is banned for the match, while Ruben Rochina misses out with a knee injury. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced forward Jose Callejon, who played for the likes of Napoli and Real Madrid in the past.
Highlighted Player (Raul Fernandez):
Born in Bilbao, Spain on March 13, 1988 Raul Fernandez is a 196-cm-tall goalkeeper who plays for La Liga side Levante.
