SD Huesca will be at Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa on Saturday for the La Liga fixture with home team Eibar.
All Eibar v SD Huesca game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Eibar will be hoping to bounce back here following the 1-0 La Liga loss in their previous game against Elche CF.
In that game, Eibar had 52% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Elche CF got 6 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Dani Calvo (33') was the scorer for Elche CF.
It has been all too rare in recent times that Eibar haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Armeros have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 9 goals in the process.
Looking at their past form shows that Eibar:
- haven't won against SD Huesca in their last 3 league games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 3 matches in the league.
SD Huesca head into the game after a 3-2 La Liga win with the downing of Granada in their previous game.

For their opponents, Granada CF had 8 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Domingos Quina (8'), Dimitri Foulquier (44' Own goal) and Alberto Soro (59') scored for Granada.
The stats tell the story, and SD Huesca have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. In defence, Oscenses seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. That trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, though.
