Friday’s Bet Of The Day: Take aim in Spain


JACK Wright's (@JackWright_BSB) new Bet of the Day continues on Friday as we head to Spain…

Huesca vs Elche | Friday 9th April 2021, 20:00 | La Liga TV

  • Massive Friday night clash in La Liga with the home side knowing a win will lift them out of the relegation zone at the expense of their opponents who have a two-point cushion going in to the match.
  • Despite their lowly league position of 18th Huesca are decidedly mid-table when it comes to shots – with the 11th highest average of 10.6 per game in the Spanish top flight.
  • Elche concede an average of 13.4 shots per game which is the second highest in the league behind only Valencia.
  • José Rojo Martín (Pacheta) has one of La Liga’s top goalscorers at his disposal in the form of Rafa Mir who with his 10 goals is level with more high-profile players such as Iago Aspas and Mikel Oyarzabal
  • The 23-year-old is ranked sixth for average shots per game with 3.1
  • The Azulgranas have crossed 13+ shots in each of their last four home games which includes a 2-1 home defeat to Real Madrid where they took a first half lead.
  • Huesca’s highest total so far this season is 19 which they hit last month when hosting Celta Vigo
  • In the reverse fixture at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero, Huesca fired in 18 attempts at goal.
  • When the two newly promoted sides met here last season in Segunda, Huesca once again went high, managing 19 shots at the Elche goal.

About Author

Having had a passion for football for as long as I can remember – I’m talking Shoot League Ladders here – one of my first “bets” is still my biggest win. After begging my mum to let me fill in her pools coupon so I could show off my knowledge, eight draws later and a cheque for £11,500 was soon in the post. As a Norwich fan it’s important to have a good grasp of what’s going on in the lower leagues and I also like exploring those less popular leagues to have a delve into any stats-based markets that are available. Right now, I’m particularly enjoying player bets. Outside of sport, I love eating and drinking - maybe a little too much - as well as listening to a varied spectrum of music, both from the comfort of my own home and at festivals.
