Huesca 1-3 Alaves: Hosts’ fightback comes to an end against Alaves

Huesca failed to keep their improved run going on Saturday, losing 3-1 to Alaves at home.

Having got themselves back in with a chance of survival this season, Huesca were deemed as slight favourites for the visit of Abelardo’s Alaves, who were on the hunt for a Champions League place.

The visitors did however – come out strong and they opened the scoring when Jonathan Calleri took advantage of a spot kick and gave them the lead.

Their lead lasted just three minutes however as Ezequiel Avila gave the home fans some hope, scoring from the penalty spot.

From that moment on the tie was fairly even with less than 10 shots each for both sides throughout the 90 minutes and we were forced to wait until their was ten minutes left on the clock until the visitors scored the winner.

Former Manchester City and Celta Vigo striker John Guidetti struck, before Calleri insured all three points with four minutes left to play.

The win for Alaves means that they now sit fifth, just one point behind fourth placed Getafe, whilst Huesca will spend another week on bottom spot and they will be hoping the likes of Rayo Vallecano and Celta Vigo lose to keep themselves close to the survival places.
