    Huesca could edge the points against Elche

    Huesca will head into this upcoming clash against fellow strugglers, Elche, on the back of a valuable 2-0 victory away from home at mid-table Levante which has helped move Friday’s hosts, Huesca, to within two points of their upcoming visitors prior to this crucial clash in La Liga.

    Huesca have produced an improved run of results of late in the Spanish top flight as the hosts have suffered just two defeats out of their last six matches overall which were against Celta Vigo and Barcelona, but they’ve also picked up wins against Granada and Levante as well.

    There’s still plenty of work ahead of Huesca at home though as they’ve managed just one win out of their last eight matches at their Estadio El Alcoraz having managed just 2 wins, 6 draws and 6 defeats at home to date this season.

    SD Huesca are expected to be without midfielder Ontiveros and defender Silva for this encounter.

    Elche sit just one league position and two points above their hosts, Huesca, ahead of this important relegation clash in La Liga on Friday night having failed to win any of their last four matches overall in the Spanish top flight which includes losses against Real Madrid and Sevilla.

    Elche have found league wins hard to come by this season and this is underlined by the fact that the visitors have managed to register just two wins out of their last 24 matches overall.

    Both of these wins were recorded on home turf at their Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero with victories over Eibar and Sevilla but results away from home have been even worse as the visitors have picked up just two wins on the road all season.

    An away record of  W2 D4 L9 12 goals for, 24 goals against indicates that Friday’s trip to Huesca by no means guarantees Elche success here, and the visitors have also failed to win any of their last 13 matches on their travels.

    This 13-match lean spell on the road includes nine defeats and having also kept just one clean sheet during this disappointing sequence of away results, Elche could find themselves up against here on Friday night but they don’t have any major injury concerns to deal with.

    Huesca are unbeaten in their last four meetings against Elche and the hosts look like they could steal the points against Elche in Friday’s encounter.
