It seems likely that Babazorros look set to use a 4-2-3-1 system for this game and select Antonio Sivera, Nahuel Tenaglia, Aleksandar Sedlar, Nikola Maras, Ruben Duarte, Salva Sevilla, Carlos Benavidez, Xeber Alkain, Jon Guridi, Abde Rebbach and Miguel de la Fuente.
Team News: SD Huesca
Owing to a fully injury-free group available for selection, the SD Huesca manager José Ziganda has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash.
We’re of the thinking that Oscenses seem likely to play in a 4-4-2 system, starting Andres Fernandez, Andrei Florin Rațiu, Jérémy Blasco, Jorge Pulido, Florian Miguel, Patrick Soko, David Timor, Kento Hashimoto, Ignasi Vilarrasa, Daniel Escriche and Kevin Omoruyi.
We’ve got the feeling that SD Huesca will have to work hard as a team to score against this Alaves side who we think might well gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore predicting a 1-0 advantage for Alaves at full-time.
Should be a close one.
