La Liga action resumes after the international break, with Levante hosting Huesca at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Friday.

The Granotas are comfortably mid-table, with 35 points earning them 10th place. Huesca, meanwhile, are rock-bottom, but can come within a point of 17th-placed Elche with a win.

Levante went into the international break on the back of a 0-2 loss away to Real Betis. Earlier, the Granotas earned their only win from the last five in the Valencian derby, defeating Valencia 1-0 at home.

Huesca followed their 4-1 hammering away to Barcelona with a crucial 0-0 draw against fellow strugglers Osasuna at home ahead of the international break.

Rafa Mir came close multiple times, with Huesca spurning a number of chances to win.

Huesca's last win away against Levante, a 2-0 victory, came in the 2016-17 La Liga 2 season. The Granotas defeated Huesca 2-0 earlier that same season.

Pacheta confirmed that Huesca will be without Javi Ontiveros for a few weeks after the winger hurt his shoulder in training. Left-back Gaston Silva and keeper Antonio Valera remain on the sidelines.

Denis Vavro trained with his teammates but is a doubt for this game, with Pablo Insua ready to step in. Luisinho is back fit, though Javi Galan may continue in the left-wingback role.

Injured: Javi Ontiveros, Gaston Silva, Antonio Valera

Doubtful: Denis Vavro

Suspended: None


Levante vs Huesca Predicted XI

Levante Predicted XI (4-4-2): Dani Cardenas (GK); Coke, Ruben Vezo, Sergio Postigo, Carlos Clerc; Jorge de Frutos, Nemanja Radoja, Mickael Malsa, Jose Luis Morales; Sergio Leon, Roger Marti

Huesca Predicted XI (3-5-2): Alvaro Fernandez (GK); Jorge Pulido, Dimitrios Siovas, Pablo Insua; Pablo Maffeo, David Ferreiro, Mikel Rico, Jaime Seoane, Javi Galan; Sandro Ramirez, Rafa Mir


Levante vs Huesca Prediction

Huesca's position at the bottom of the table does them a disservice, with Pacheta's attack causing problems for every defense it faces. Levante have pulled off a few major wins against Atletico Madrid and Valencia recently, so they are favorites going into this game.

We expect both sides to share the spoils in a high-scoring encounter.

Prediction: Levante 2-2 Huesca
