Thursday, from 17:30, Huesca will receive the visit of Athletic Bilbao in a match for the second hand of the “16” Spanish Cup finals. The game will take place on “Estadio El Alcoraz” in Huesca.
Nobody forces, the qualification was decided on “San Mames”.
A week ago, Athletic Bilbao would have ensured his presence in the optimum of Copei del Rey. The Basque were forced to land on their own in front of Huesca, scoring 4-0, making it virtually impossible, a return of the fate of the qualification. The situation is all the more clear as Huesca will not have any real intention to try a potential “remontada”, given the situation in La Liga. In fact, none of the two combatants do well in the championship. Huesca has the status of a “red flashlight” with an average of 0.5 points per match after 14 stages. On the other side, with 11 points after 14 rounds, Athletic won only one match this season of La Liga, even in the inaugural round against Leganes (2-1). In other words, the critical situation in the championship will not cause any of the teams to force on Thursday night in the Spanish Cup.
Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a balanced deployment of hostilities. Following the arguments presented above, we believe that we will witness a qualitatively modest match between two combatants seriously constrained by the more than sensitive situation in the championship.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1.73
