Huesca vs Athletic Bilbao
Spain – La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 12 May 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz.
Bilbao are one of the few teams in the whole Spanish top flight to go unbeaten in the past five fixtures, and they are also in running for European participation. Against the relegation-threatened Huesca, they easily have the edge this Wednesday.
As things stand, Huesca are placed 18th in a table of 20, and have a total of just six wins all through this campaign. Note that only one other squad has conceded more goals than them this season as well.
They also have been losing almost every other game, and even at home they have found it hard to deliver good performances at least once in a while.
Meanwhile, Bilbao have been one of the best teams in the Spanish La Liga for the past several years. They are currently chasing a European ticket, and need at least a seventh-place finish for that.
At present, they need to make up a deficit of six points to make it to the seventh spot. With nothing to lose, they definitely will give their 100% on the pitch to fulfil this objective.
Going on, they also have a phenomenal h2h record against this foe as well.
Likely, expect a Bilbao victory at the Estadio El Alcoraz.

Huesca vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
Huesca lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Cadiz. In the meantime, Bilbao registered a 2-2 draw against Osasuna.
Going on, Huesca had lost four of their last five games, and they were also winless in 31 of their past 37 fixtures.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in 22 of their preceding 26 overall fixtures, and they had remained invincible in 13 of their past 15 road trips.
On top of that, and most importantly, Huesca have a worrying h2h record against this opponent over the years.
By the looks of things, expect an Athletic Bilbao victory this Wednesday.
