Gastón Silva (Ankle Injury), Pedro Mosquera (Muscular problems), Sandro Ramírez (Muscle Injury) and Luisinho (Knee Problems) aren’t available for Huesca manager Juan Pacheta.

Granada manager Diego Martínez has some current player fitness concerns. Luis Milla (Muscle Injury), Roberto Soldado (Muscular problems), Yangel Herrera (Hamstring Injury), Germán Sánchez (Adductor problems), Neyder Lozano (Tibia Fracture) and Luis Suárez (Muscle Injury) will miss out on this game.
For this match, we think that Granada are capable enough to get a goal against this SD Huesca team, but that probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re going for a close game with a 2-1 winning score for SD Huesca by the conclusion of the game. Definitely a tough call.
