Cadiz vs Zaragoza
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Monday, 8 April 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon de Carranza (Cadiz).
Cadiz will continue their push for promotional play-offs on Monday evening when they host Real Zaragoza in the last match of the 33rd round in Segunda Division. The hosts broke into the top-six in the league ladder thanks to a narrow 0-1 victory over rock-bottomed Reus Deportiu last Sunday. They are now just six points behind second-placed Granada and can still theoretically catch the automatic promotion to the top flight of Spanish football.
Nevertheless, the head coach Alvaro Diaz certainly wanted to get more than just five points from last three games which saw Cadiz play relegation-threatened Lugo, Cordoba and Reus Deportiu. The Yellow Submarine struggled badly with the build-up play in the final third as they bagged no more than three goals in last four league outings. Alvaro’s troops did not score more than one goal in any of last five league matches.
Cadiz vs Zaragoza: Head-to-head
The hosts can heavily rely on the head to head tradition against Real Zaragoza, though.
Cadiz won six, drew one and lost one of past eight meetings with Los Manos.
None of last five head to head encounters saw three or more goals scored.
Zaragoza notched only one goal in last six meetings with the Yellow Submarine.
Cadiz vs Zaragoza: Prediction
The visitors had another underwhelming campaign in the second tier of Spanish football. They hold 15th position after 32 rounds and are miles away from the promotional challenge. This is mainly thanks to their poor displays on the road.
Los Manos lost each of last three away fixtures in the league without scoring a single goal in the process, Given they are up against defensive-minded promotional hopefuls Cadiz away at Estadio Ramon de Carranza, we kind of expect to see another zero from Zaragoza on the scoresheet.
Cadiz shipped just one goal in last six H2H meetings with Los Manos. They allowed only 9 goals in 16 home outings in this term of Segunda Division. A narrow home win to nil is the way to go here.
