Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio El Alcoraz will host Thursday’s football game between Huesca and Las Palmas, the two teams who are eyeing promotion to La Liga. Huesca could still secure a top-two finish, and, no doubt, they will go all guns blazing at Las Palmas on Matchday 37. Japan international Shinji Okazaki, who found the net in a 1-1 draw with Cadiz, is likely to lead the line for the hosts.
La Union Deportiva, on the other hand, are undefeated in Segunda Division after the coronavirus football break. Las Palmas are four points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that the midweek fixture is of big importance for them. Considering that both sides are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s showdown, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting at Estadio El Alcoraz the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
