Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Zaragoza will look to recover from a shocking Copa del Rey defeat to lower-league side Atzeneta when they take on Huesca in the La Liga 2 round 16. Los Blanquillos are on a seven-game winless run in all competitions and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against los Azulgranas. Both Ivan Azon and Jaume Grau return to the starting XI after the duo came off the bench in the Spanish Cup defeat, while all Marc Aguado, Sinan Bakis, Fran Gamez, and Cristian Alvarez remain in the recovery room.
Huesca, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous three league matches. Since Huesca are likely to adopt yet another defence-minded approach, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in Huesca’s last ten games in all competitions. Defender Ruben Pulido should be the only absentee in the away team.
