Preview: Huesca vs. Getafe - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's La Liga clash between Huesca and Getafe, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Huesca will look to break out of the La Liga relegation zone on Sunday, when they welcome Getafe to the Estadio El Alcoraz.

The hosts have fallen back into the bottom three after back-to-back defeats, while Getafe now sit just four points ahead, remaining in danger of falling into the drop zone.

Huesca suffered a 2-0 defeat to league leaders Atletico Madrid last time out, as Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco netted goals either side of half time.

While that result is by no means devastating for Pacheta's side, the previous loss to fellow strugglers Deportivo Alaves was particularly disappointing.

That game looked set to end goalless, until Rodrigo Battaglia popped up with the winner in the 85th minute to send Huesca back into the relegation zone.

That followed back-to-back victories for Pacheta's men, as they lifted themselves off the foot of the table and briefly out of the bottom three.

While they have since fallen back into the drop zone, the Estadio El Alcoraz outfit sit just one point adrift of safety, with a win on Sunday moving them one point behind Getafe.

As a result, Pacheta will be desperate for his side to return to winning ways on Saturday to hugely boost their chances of breaking out of the bottom three, as we approach the final straight of the league season.

They take on Getafe, who have dropped worryingly close to the bottom three after a run of seven league games without a victory.

The visitors suffered a heavy defeat last time out, as they travelled to the Camp Nou to take on title-chasing Barcelona.

A Lionel Messi brace alongside goals from Ronald Araujo, Antoine Griezmann and a Sofian Chakla own goal condemned Los Azulones to a 5-2 defeat, as a Clement Lenglet own goal and an Enes Unal penalty made no impact on the final result.

That stretched Getafe's winless run to seven games, having picked up just four points in that time, despite a commendable goalless draw with champions Real Madrid.

As a result of their poor form, Jose Bordalas's side have fallen worryingly close to the bottom three, now sitting just four points ahead of Sunday's opponents in 18th spot.

That means they will be hoping to break that run on Sunday with a crucial result that would stretch that gap between themselves and the drop zone.

Team News

Huesca will remain without left-back Luisinho, who has been absent since February with a knee injury.

He will be joined on the sidelines by Pablo Maffeo and Javier Ontiveros, after both players missed the recent game.

Sandro Ramirez will look to regain his spot in the front line alongside Rafa Mir on Sunday, after Shinji Okazaki came into the side last time out.

Getafe will remain without centre-back Erick Cabaco, who has missed the last six games with a knee injury.

He will be joined by attacker Cucho Hernandez, who has been sidelined with a metatarsal fracture.

Allan Nyom will return to the squad from his one-game suspension last time out, forming a solid right-hand side with Carlos Alena.

Meanwhile, left-back Mathias Oliveira was absent from the squad against Barcelona, but he could make a swift return on Sunday.

Huesca possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Pulido, Insua, Siovas; Lopez, Ferreiro, Mosquera, Seoane, Galan; Ramirez, Mir

Getafe possible starting lineup:
Soria; Nyom, Timor, Dakonam, Olivera; Alena, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Mata, Unal


SM words green background

We say: Huesca 2-1 Getafe

In a game between two sides battling to turn poor runs of form around and boost their survival hopes, we see the hosts coming away with a narrow victory.

Getafe have looked devoid of confidence and quality in the last few weeks, and the recent 5-2 thrashing will not help the camp, while Huesca have already shown the resilience to break out of the bottom three once, and will fancy themselves to do it again.
