      Tip Reasoning

      This Saturday’s game is one of a number of significant matches at the bottom of La Liga this weekend. It sees a Girona side that is struggling for results host rock bottom Huesca, who will take confidence into this having scored four in a convincing win over Valladolid last time out. They will be desperate to build on that here as they seek to start an unlikely escape act.

      Huesca are still 9 points from safety so their chances of survival remain slim but victory here away to the side directly above the drop-zone would suddenly spark a real sense of belief that it is not an impossible task. They haven’t been as bad as some of their results this season suggest with their finishing letting them down badly until last weekend’s surprise avalanche of goals.

      Girona have almost had the opposite problem with Cristhian Stuani clinical up front but much of their football this term hasn’t been that impressive. They impressed in the Copa del Rey but that run may just have left them jaded in some of their recent league outings and they are without a win in 12 matches heading into this one, which has to be a concern for Eusebio.

      Overall there looks to be some value in backing the visitors to get a result here. They also got a result in their most recent away game, grinding out a draw at Real Sociedad and they don’t look out of their depth at this level despite what the league table may suggest. They average 1.12 Expected Goals per game this term, giving up 1.28 at the other end, figures that are considerably better than you’d expect from a team in their position.

      Girona have inferior records in both departments so this has the potential to be an even game and if Huesca are as clinical as they were last week, they’ve every chance of getting a result. Girona have only won 2 of their last 16 home league games, so there’s plenty of reason to fancy backing Huesca Double Chance here.

      Going for Both Teams to Score also looks good and it has been a profitable bet in Girona matches in recent weeks. 8 of their last 10 matches in all competitions have seen goals at each end while 65% of their home league games this term have done likewise. The same goes for over half of Huesca’s away matches in their debut top flight season.
