Foot Predictions shows the La Liga clash on Saturday between Sevilla and Huesca, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
After his heroism against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey, Sevilla could close a perfect week with three points against the last in the league Huesca at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan.
Despite their humble position in La Liga, Huesca has been enjoying football lately and has had a number of positive displays in recent weeks. Despite hitting Julen LopeteguiSevilla’s ambitious team could be a step too far for Aragon’s team.
Sevilla arrive in this tie after an impressive first leg of the semifinals against La Liga heavyweight Barcelona, in which they won 2-0.
Central defense Jules Kounde and former Barça star Ivan Rakitic were the heroes of the night, both finding the back of the net to give the home team a comfortable lead for the return game.
With a firm footing in the final of the competition, Lopetegui did not let the emotion overtake him after the game. Speaking to the press, he said: “However, we still have the most difficult thing to do, which is playing in Barcelona. We know how difficult the second leg will be ”.
Cagism aside, it’s safe to say that Lopetegui will be very confident in his team’s chances. After all, Los Palanganas have won their last four league games and are one of the best-looking teams in the division.
Sevilla and Huesca met only once at Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, in a 2018 game that ended 2-1 for the home team.
Three points for Lopetegui’s men this weekend could take them to third place, ahead of Barça.
However, this weekend’s tie will be anything but a walk in the park for Sevilla. Thanks to the new boss Pacheta, Huesca abandoned its league champion status and evolved to a side more than capable of escaping the fall.
With four points won against Villarreal and Real Valladolid in recent weeks, Huesca again beat Real Madrid with great confidence.
even though Javi Galan achieving the first goal of the game right after the break, Pacheta’s men ended up being undone by Los Blancos after Rafael Varane scored his first two goals of the season.
With their backs against the wall, it is unlikely that this defeat will shake the mood in Huesca and Pacheta are looking for the three points when traveling to Andalusia.
To add points, Pacheta may well have his attacking star Rafa Mir, who scored three goals against Valladolid and appears to have developed an appetite for scoring significant goals.
