Huesca welcome the visitors Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Copa del Rey – 1/16 Finals. The match will be held on Thursday, December 6th at the Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).
The fact is that the newcomers to the La Liga have no chances to progress to the next round at all. They need to score at least four goals and keep a clean sheet. Objectively, the team have to get ready to the match versus Real, and looks like a smashout defeat expects them there. On their turf, Huesca have never won in the championship yet, and they have four away losses in a row. The hosts have not played to nil within this season, missing over one goal in half of their matches. Maybe, Huesca will take their chance of rehabilitation and win on Thursday, but will they keep their goal locked?

Athletic are struggling for survival and are just four points ahead of their opponent. This was enough, however, to net to Huesca three goals by the 32nd minute of the first half in the first match. Will the coming meeting be just a formality? It will, but the guests need to score at least once, to be on the safe side. Much will depend on Athletic’s choice of their starting eleven on Thursday. Though the ‘Lions’ can hardly be called an effective team, they did not score in three matches only. They netted twice to Atletico, once to Barcelona, and once to Real. It would be strange not to score this time.
In our view, the best option is to bet on one goal by the guests. This prediction is ok when the margin is 1.63 at least. As we can see, Huesca’ home pitch does not help them much. Athletic score in three consecutive matches. It would be weird to net six goals in the two latest matches and play to nil this time.
Prediction for the match: Athletic Bilbao to score over 1.0 goals.
