Huesca stands at third spot in Spanish Segunda and this team is one of candidates for promotion, however they must change some things and consolidate their squad since are in pretty bad form at the moment, they failed to win last seven games and suffered four defeats with three draws, in 33rd round they are welcoming 13th placed Albacete and are marked as favorites, here home team have imperative to win and get back on winning tracks, first duel of these two teams in October ended without goals but here i'm quiet sure that Huesca can score against not so great defense.
After slow start of this campaign home team showed improving and achieved really great results until half of February when something went wrong, now are coming here after narrow defeat in duel with Zaragoza, another failure is something what this team can't afford, nine games left until the end and they must keep their position in play off zone. In previous campaign they ended at 6th position but weren't very successful in play offs, anyway now must lift their form and start with earning of points. Defenders Carlos Akapo (17/0) and Brezancic (23/0) will probably both stay out of the squad due to injuries.
Albacete returned into Spanish second division and they are determined to stay here, after 33 rounds are at 13th position and 8 points separates them from relegation zone, they were solid by their standards and must try to retain their position in safe zone, this team didn't impressed with their goal scoring skills while defense was good enough. So far guests collected 44 points and can be more than satisfied with that, they are in decent shape at the moment and suffered only one defeat in last seven games against Rayo Vallecano in previous round.
In that last duel they faced with one of main promotion contenders and were outplayed but in the end can be satisfied with the fact that conceded only one goal, here are facing with decent team which despite are far from their best form are still very dangerous. Visitors are underdogs for this duel and with a good reason, opponents were good in offense and i don't believe that Albacete will earn something out of this. Guests are coming here without injured midfielder Pelayo (2/0) and Nestor Susaeta (27/1), defender Saveljich (29/0) is suspended for this game and defender Gorosito (9/0) is also injured but he could be ready for this duel.
Huesca need to win this match at all costs and i expect that can outplay Albacete which are team which belongs to the middle of the table and despite are in decent shape still are facing with strong hosts, victory of Huesca is only possible result of this match in my opinion.
