Reason For Huesca vs Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips

It’s been a poor season for Bilbao, who’ve just appointed Gaizka Garitano as their new boss, there can be no getting away from this, though they did give their fans reason to feel upbeat last week when they thrashed Huesca by four goals to nil in the first leg of this Copa del Rey last-16 tie. After such a damaging defeat, it appears that there’s no way back for Huesca, who’ve been in shocking form of late.

When the teams met in the first leg, Bilbao did deserve to come out on top, though the 4-0 score-line is a bit misleading, as they Basque club weren’t quite as dominant as you might think. Huesca, who had more shots and one less shot on target were certainly in the game and they certainly had some opportunities, though they just came up short from both an end-product and overall quality point of view. Bilbao weren’t lacking in end-product, but as the final expected goal counts of 1.83 (Bilbao) and 1.03 (Huesca) suggest, they were perhaps fortunate to win by such a comfortable margin.

Had Huesca avoided such a heavy beating in the first leg, then they would’ve come into this match feeling confident. Even if they’d lost 2-0, the Aragon side would’ve fancied themselves to turn things around, such has been their level of performances at home this season. Francisco’s men are yet to win at Estadio El Alcoraz, but they’ve only lost twice, while their underlying numbers have been encouraging. Thursday’s hosts are averaging 1.58 expected goals for, while they’re giving up 0.89 at the other end.

In contrast, Bilbao will be delighted that they managed to build such a lead on their travels this season, as they’ve been terrible away from home.  The away side are without a win on their travels this season, while they’re also without a clean sheet. In addition, Thursday’s visitors are averaging a pathetic 1.05 expected goals for, while they’re giving up an average of 1.71 at the other end. Such stats don’t bode well, so it a good job that Bilbao have such a commanding aggregate lead.

With the aggregate score in mind, Huesca have no other choice but to throw everything at this game. As their numbers suggest, they’ve got the quality to hurt a Bilbao side that has defended poorly away from home, but they’ll have no choice but to run the risk of being caught out at the back all game long. At the prices, the bet that stands out is ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’. Even a weak Bilbao attack can take advantage of the fact that the hosts have no choice but to leave themselves open.
