Gimnastic vs Zaragoza
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Monday, 12 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Nou Estadi de Tarragona (Tarragona).
Both Gimnastic Tarragona and Real Zaragoza are struggling badly at the start of the new Segunda Division campaign. They are set to drop the curtain on the Matchday No 13 on Monday evening at Nou Estadi de Tarragona.
The hosts sit at the rock-bottom of the ladder, but they managed to at least move lock on points with the penultimate- placed Extramadura UC by beating Real Oviedo in their previous home fixture. It was the second win of the season for Granes who do look better under the new manager Enrique Martin. The mentioned tie with Oviedo was Martin’s official debut on Gimnastic’s bench. However, the team failed to back it up last weekend when the 5th-placed Albacete were too strong at Estadio Carlos Belmonte (2-0).
Gimnastic vs Zaragoza: Head-to-head
Real Zaragoza took four points from two last term meetings with Gimnastic Tarragona.
The two sides met each other also in a pre-season friendly this summer when Granes took a narrow 1-0 victory.
Nine of last three head to head encounters saw three or more goals scored.
Nastic won 4, drew 4 and lost only 2 of 10 matches against Los Manos in front of the home crowd.
Gimnastic vs Zaragoza: Prediction
The visitors also made a managerial change in October, but the new head coach Lucas Alcaraz (former Deportivo La Coruna manager) is yet to make an impact unlike his colleague at the opposite end. Zaragoza head into this winless in last nine matches. They were struggling badly for goals lately.
Los Manos bagged just one goal in last five league outings. The most recent of failures came last weekend when they lost the home tie to Granada 0-2.
We do find the hosts as a side much closer to snatching the spoils here for various reasons. They reacted very well after the change on the bench and produced decent displays in last two rounds under Enrique Martin. Also, they lost only two of ten home games against Los Manos which is why we see Nastic or Draw double chance as a banker at 1.40.
