Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 19/20 @ Bet 365

Two sides who are in need of an impressive run in the second half of the season, Espanyol will host relegation contenders Huesca to the RCDE Stadium on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a 0-0 draw with Valencia last weekend, Rubi will be desperate for his Espanyol side to find a run of momentum. Sat way down in 14th and some way off their top-half finish last season, Periquitos will know they must improve on their recent defensive issues. Despite keeping a clean sheet against the Bats last time out, that was Espanyol’s only one in their last 11 appearances. If Espanyol are to make it four games unbeaten on Friday, then they will be looking to carry on their record at the RCDE Stadium. Rubi’s men have lost just one of their last five matches on home soil.

As for the visitors, while Hesca are still almost universally tipped for relegation out of La Liga this season, Francisco will be impressed by his sides’ recent performances. Despite suffering a 1-0 loss against a resurgent Athletic Bilbao last weekend, that is their only defeat in their last four appearances. Picking up a 4-0 win over Real Valladolid and a 2-0 win over Girona, the visitors will be looking for leading goalscorer Ezequiel Ávila to carry on his recent tally. The 25-year-old has now bagged three goals in his last three La Liga outings.
