Huesca vs Valencia Match Preview
Valencia sit just three points behind La Liga’s top 4 as they travel to rock-bottomed Huesca for their Matchday 36 clash on Sunday but the occasion hardly comes at the best time possible for Marcelino’s men – as they search for an end to a three-match losing streak.
Los Che dropped important points against Atlético Madrid (3-2) and Eibar (0-1) last week and saw Arsenal (3-1) earn a sizeable advantage in Europa League semi-finals despite taking the lead at Emirates, where a brace from Alexandre Lacazette completed a comeback in the first half and Aubameyang added one in the dying minutes of the contest.
They will now need more as Huesca grasp for straws with a seven-point gap to make up with just three games to play, as they proved themselves a very tough nut to crack but struggled to turn clashes their way.
Oscenses have thus bagged eight points in six outings as they beat Eibar (2-0) but also held off Celta (3-3), Levante (2-2), Barcelona (0-0), Rayo Vallecano (0-0), and Villarreal (1-1). We’ve seen them regularly scoring goals at El Alcoraz and they will obviously be just as motivated for an upset here.
We will still back Valencia to prevail and snatch the points in an exciting contest, ending a three-match losing streak with a win priced at 11/10 bet365. The home side will have to go for the points and this could prove costly on Sunday afternoon.
Luis Avila led the line with goals lately, though, and we do see Huesca getting on the scoresheet too as we now back Over 2.5 Goals FT at Paddy Power and Valencia have a lot to prove at the back.
