      Villarreal vs Huesca Predictions


      It is the 2nd tier side that currently hold the advantage after producing an excellent performance to win an entertaining 1st leg 3-2. The visitors named a strong side for the tie but Huesca were more than a match, taking the lead on 3 separate occasions with Darwin Machís’ late goal ultimately proving decisive.

      Villarreal come into this game on a real high having beaten Real Madrid at the weekend in La Liga thanks to an early Roberto Soldado goal. This will be a very different kind of challenge with Huesca likely to put men behind the ball and Villarreal will have to be patient as they try to carve out some openings.

      We will most likely see a few changes from them but there are unlikely to be that many and even though Villarreal will have European football in the new year, they’ll still be keen to progress here and with Los Blancos already out, might view it as a real chance to win the first silverware in the club’s history.

      It’s a big ask for Huesca to repeat their 1st leg level of performance over 90 minutes again here. Villarreal’s quality should ultimately tell and given this is a top six side from La Liga at home to a bottom six side from the Segunda Division, Villarreal should still work up the 2 goal margin they need to progress. Therefore backing them at 1.975 with a -1.5 Asian Handicap may very well be the way to go here.

      We aren’t likely to see as many goals as we did in the 1st leg with Huesca likely to be much more compact and cautious. Therefore if you fancy a correct scoreline bet, consider going for Villarreal to win 2-0 at 5/1.
