Espanyol welcomes Huesca
Espanyol welcomes Huesca in a first game from the 25th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s take a look at this fixture in Barcelona in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Espanyol are having a mediocre season so far. Los Pericos are 14th in the league standings with 29 points and a record of 8 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses. In their last five matches the Catalans won only once – against Rayo Vallecano, doing two draws and suffering two defeats. In other words, their current form is also far from impressive.
Espanyol’s last game ended with a 0-0 draw against Valencia at the Estadio Mestalla. Rubi’s boys didn’t have a lot of opportunities in front of Neto’s goal. Espanyol even finished the game with 10 men on the pitch, because the left defender Javi Lopez was sent off in the last seconds. Lopez will miss the game against Huesca.
On a positive note, Espanyol are in a run of three consecutive matches without a loss.
Huesca are 20th in La Liga’s standings with just 18 points won so far. Right now they are 6 points behind the 17th Celta and the safe zone. On theory they can survive, but only if they make a really strong push in the next few months.
Huesca were on the right way with two consecutive wins against Real Valladolid and Girona, but in the previous round they suffered a defeat against Athletic Bilbao at home. The fans were hoping for a third consecutive win, but the Basques won this one.
These are our winning soccer predictions for today for the La Liga fixture between Espanyol and Huesca on Friday night. Los Pericos are the favourites here, but Huesca will be dangerous – they are a team which is fighting for survival, remember this. Good luck.
