Huesca hosts Elche in round 30 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Friday, April 9th at Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca)
Huesca is ranked 18th in the LaLiga standings (24 points after 29 games). Oscenses have four wins, 12 draws, and 13 defeats. The club continues to fight for maintaining its place in the elite. Now Pacheta's players are in the relegation zone, but only two points separate them from the saving 17th line. The victory in the upcoming meeting will allow Huesca to get out of the danger zone. In the last round, the Catalans interrupted an unsuccessful streak of four meetings without victories. It happened in the away match against Levante (0-2). The hero of the meeting was forward Rafael Mir, loaned from Wolverhampton - he scored a double. This footballer has consolidated his status as the team's top scorer in La Liga (10 goals in 29 games).

Fran Escriba's Elche is in 17th position in the championship standings (26 points after 29 rounds). The club has five wins, 11 draws, and 13 defeats. The Green-striped ones are in the immediate vicinity of the relegation zone. The gap from the neighboring Huesca is equal to two points. Elche's position in the table would have been more stable if not for the streak of failures in the last rounds. The Green-striped ones cannot win for four rounds in a row. After a home victory over Sevilla, Elche scored only two points. And one of them was earned last Sunday in a home game against Betis (1-1). Betikos took the lead thanks to the penalty kick, which was converted by Borja Iglesias, but closer to the break, the hosts restored the balance through the efforts of Pere Milla.
The outcome of the meeting in Huesca is important for the distribution of places in the basement of the LaLiga standings. Therefore, competitors in the struggle for survival will be extremely motivated. Huesca has a slight advantage in the upcoming game. Good statistics of head-to-head meetings and the home status of the match are on the side of the Catalans. At the same time, Elche, which has gained two draws in the last two rounds, seems to be an uncompromising team. Taking this into account, it would be logical to expect a small number of goals scored. The teams do not shine with high scoring. Huesca has an average of one goal scored per match, and Elche scores 0.9 goals. We think that the teams won’t arrange goal extravaganza in their head-to-head match.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
