Huesca were finally able to end a long wait for a victory by beating Cartagena 3-0 away from home. Dani Escriche came up with a brace either side of the goal from Marc Mateu. Ponferradina played out a goalless draw with Real Zaragoza to constantly be worried about being overtaken by Girona.

Draw

Ponferradina have not been in great shape over the last few weeks. Amidst plenty of action in the Copa del Rey, the club have silently gone on four games without a win in the league. Apart from the win over Cartagena, Huesca have also been struggling. The two teams are likely to cancel out each other and play out a draw just like the reverse meeting back in November when the game finished as a 1-1 draw.

Total goals under 2.5

Huesca might have averaged a goal per game so far this season, but the numbers would look very bad in recent games if not for the big win over Cartagena. Ponferradina are also struggling for goals with the team managing just five in the last six matches. The goalscoring problems of the two teams is likely to result in a low scoring game.

Both teams to score – yes

Huesca have not scored in four out of the last five home games, while Ponferradina have not scored in back-to-back league matches. This will make life difficult for fans of this match, who may not be able to see a lot of goals. However, the defensive problems faced with the two teams should mean at least a goal or two from both teams.
