Huesca – Alaves SOCCER PICKS
Huesca and Deportivo Alavés face at El Alcoraz Stadium, in a match for the 28 th round of the First Division. Deportivo Alavés won at home by (2-1) the last time they met in this edition of the league, on 11-11-2018. The record of direct confrontations of the last 3 years is favorable to the visiting team, which in the last 5 matches won 4 and lost 1. The home / away condition deserves particular attention, since despite this being a match between 20 th and 5 th of the table of the league, in fact it is a confrontation between the 16th classified in games at home and the 7th as a visitor.
The home team is currently in the 20 th position of the league, with 22 points won, after 5 wins, 7 draws and 15 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Sevilla, by (2-1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Getafe, by (2-1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 13 points in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 27 conceded, against 14 points won at their stadium, with 14 goals scored and 17 conceded. In the last 10 home league matches Huesca has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 30 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half-time was the 0-1 (6 out of 13 matches). They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 27 matches in the competition, they suffered the first goal 16 times and only managed 1 comeback.
The Huesca enters this unmotivated performance, after a foreign snub, by 2-1, in the displacement to the Getafe ground. It is possible that the whole house prefers the right side flank to attack, taking advantage of the depth offered by the right wing David Ferreiro. Habitually, the Huesca usually acts in a tactical system in 5-3-2, in which the two most advanced players are Ávila and Gallego. The coach of the premises will not be able to count on Pablo Insua, Luisinho, Jorge Miramon, Carlos Akapo, Christian Rivera and Gonzalo Melero, for being injured.
The away team is currently in the 5 th position of the league, with 41 points won, after 11 wins, 8 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Villarreal, by (1-2). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Eibar, by (1-1). This is a team little affected by the house factor, since it conquered similar results at home and abroad. In the last 10 away matches for the championship, Deportivo Alavés has 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 30 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent final result at halftime was 1-0 (5 out of 14 matches). The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so it was not very strong defensively. In 27 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 13 times, but have won the first leg in 4. In the last 14 home matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 8 of their 22 goals between minutes (76′- 90 ‘).
The Alavés comes to this performance after a home draw, a ball, at the reception to Eibar. The greatest valence of outsiders lies in their ability to drive their offensive attacks through rapid transitions. It should be noted that from a defensive point of view, the difficulties increase when the opposing team attacks through the wings. The Argentine Jonathan Calleri is responsible for putting the rival defensive sense, with the highest quality being the final. Everything indicates that the foreign trainer will not be able to count on Martin Aguirregabiria, for being injured.
