Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Malaga and Huesca take on each other in a highly-anticipated clash at Estadio La Rosaleda. Los Boquerones have been having their ups and downs in the 2019/20 season, and, as a result, they sit in the 14th place ahead of Matchday 32. The hosts head into the first game after the coronavirus break with a severely-weakened squad as Niguez, Buenacasa, Luis Hernandez, Morente, Pacheco, Enriquez, Benkhemassa and Romero are all struggling with injuries.
Huesca, on the other hand, are eyeing automatic promotion to Primera Division, and given the current situation in Malaga’s dressing room, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Huesca chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, and seeing that there will be no spectators in Friday’s football game due to the fierce of coronavirus spread, away win should be considered.
