Real Madrid vs. Huesca Predictions and Preview
Real Madrid are out of the title race in La Liga – they languish 12 points behind league leaders Barcelona and are also out of all cup competitions.
Recent league victories over Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo do not carry great significance, although the return of boss Zinedine Zidane has revitalised the club and rejuvenated their confidence.
Huesca remain bottom of the standings and are now seven points adrift of safety, but just one point off Rayo Vallecano and three from Celta.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Gareth Bale has netted in recent victories over Atletico Madrid, Levante and Celta Vigo, while he is priced at 4/5 to continue his good form in front of goal this season in this clash – against opponents he scored against earlier this season.
One to watch for Huesca: Argentine forward Ezequiel Avila is the main danger for the visitors, with four of his six La Liga goals this season coming in his last six appearances. The 25-year-old is at 27/5 to find the net here.
Long shot: Real Madrid have failed to score in two of their last four domestic games while Huesca have three clean sheets in the last eight. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 35/1.
