The Sociedad Deportiva Huesca needs the victory this Sunday against Celta de Vigo, in El Alcoraz, to continue believing in salvation since the victory would allow it to tighten the lower zone even more and even, in the best of cases, leave the relegation zone given the small difference in points between the last classifieds.
Huesca is in a good moment of play and results and is only two points from the permanence zone, it wants to leave already taking advantage of the proximity in the rivals table, which would happen to win the Galician team and wait other results that will benefit you.
The Barça team is with morale and confidence as they see how they can get out of the tunnel in which they are still stuck as they are getting results that allow them to continue engaging in the fight for permanence.
José Rojo “Pacheta”, coach of the Huesca team, has for this match the casualties of the injured Gastón Silva, Pedro Mosquera and Luishino, and only a couple of changes are expected against the Galician team with respect to the last league match in which drew away from home against a direct rival like Eibar.
Precisely the objective is to achieve victory against the Galician team to make good the draw harvested in Basque territory.
The two foreseeable changes in the Alto Aragonese team could take place in the center of the field with Mikel Rico entering through Doumbia and up front, with “Sandro” Ramírez playing at the beginning, who returned from an injury and scored the tying goal in Ipurúa, in to the detriment of Dani Escriche.
With only one victory in the last nine days, which meant the resignation of Jorge Almirón in Elche (3-1), Celta de Vigo travels to Huesca with the intention of dispelling their doubts against the resurrected Pacheta team, in a A demanding duel in which Eduardo Coudet will not be able to count on Renato Tapia’s lung.
The absence of the Peruvian international, who will complete his second cycle of yellow cards, is a serious setback for the Argentine coach. Tapia is indisputable in his innovative game system, both for his tireless physical waste and for his ease of reaching the center-backs to start the game from the defensive line.
Celta are not going through their best moment. He comes from signing the worst performance of the Coudet era against Valladolid, although Murillo’s goal in the discount prevented the alarm lights from turning on again in Balaídos. The Huesca clash will mean another revalidation for a team unable to seal its virtual permanence.
Winning at El Alcoraz would mean “discarding” a direct rival, in addition to taking a significant income on the last three places before facing a double commitment in Balaídos against Athletic and Real Madrid.
Several factors have influenced that celestial fall, such as Aspas’s injury – his last goal was precisely against Huesca in December – and that the rivals have already taken the measure of the team, unable to start playing from behind or exert pressure after lost as high as in the month of November.
Despite everything, Coudet will continue to trust the same players. The Argentine will only introduce Fran Beltrán for the sanctioned Tapia and Aidoo for the injured Araujo, in addition to returning Nolito to the left wing after serving a sanction against Valladolid. There are no more tweaks. Solari and Ferreyra will wait for their opportunity on the bench.
