Huesca - Elche

Asian Handicap
Pick: Elche +0.5
Odds: 1.87
Stake: 1

Match date: 09/04/2021

Crucial match tonight at Estadio El Alcoraz where Huesca host Elche in a relegation battle. Very important match for both teams as they seek to secure vital points in their battle to avoid relegation. Currently Huesca sits on 18th place just two points behind Elche who are the last safe place.

In my opinion there is not too much difference in terms of quality and current form between these two teams. That is precisely the reason I don’t see why Huesca is made such favorite by the bookies.

Perhaps bookies value the home advantage and the fact that Huesca is coming from a good performance against Levante where they won by 2-0. In fact that was their only win in last five matches and came against an opponent who sits comfortably in the table and could be said that has no more interest in the league as they have nothing important to play for.

While tonight’s match against Elche, due to the circumstances, will be a totally a different story and I expect a very tight and difficult match.

Elche on the other hand has lost some places in the table due to bad results lately, but if we see their schedule they had a tough one. They have five defeats in last ten matches but they were all away from home against top teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla. So no big blame if they weren’t able to secure points against such opponents.

To come back to this match, I expect a tight and nervous match. Elche will be glad not to lose this match and would do anything to try and exploit Huesca’s desire to win this.

As I mentioned before I think the difference between these two teams is not as big as bookies suggest and IMO there is value backing Elche to get at least a point from this match. Moreover Elche has full team available while Huesca beside Ontiveros and Silva, has added also Pablo Maffeo to the injury list.
