Numancia Real Zaragoza: Preview and Predictions

Numancia Real Zaragoza
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Wednesday, 6th June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos, Soria.

Numancia and Real Zaragoza finished the previous season in Segunda Division level on points, juts two above the drop zone. The very following campaign saw them improve drastically as both sides fought their way to the top-six finish after 42 rounds of the regular season, meaning they are now to determine the promotional play-offs finalist over the two legs within the following four days. The first one is scheduled for Wednesday evening at Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos where Numancia will be hoping to gain advantage ahead of Sunday’s reverse fixture at Estadio de la Romareda.

The visitors head into this as clear form favourites given that Rojillos barely managed to clinch the sixth place at the end of the season after winning just one point in four games before the victory in the last round. .

Numancia vs Real Zaragoza: Head-to-head

  • Los Manos lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into their 22nd encounter with Numancia.
  • Zaragoza won each of last three outings against Rojillos netting eight goals along the way.
  • As many as 6 of 12 H2H matches at Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos ended without a winner.

Numancia vs Real Zaragoza: Predictions

Numancia’s form has seen somewhat of a slide in the last couple of months. They endured a dismal period which saw the team claim just one point in four league games before snatching the crucial win over Cultural Leonesa 2-1 on the final day.

The head coach Jagoba Arrasate has reasons to be worried about his men’s defensive displays as Numancia have been very easy to break down lately. This will be the music to the ears of Zaragoza’s red-hot attacking line led by the phenomenal Celta’s loanee Borja Iglesias who has 22 goals to his name in this term of Segunda.

The value is thus very strong with the visitors to net two or more goals at the sky-high 3.25 odds, while you can alternatively take Los Manos not to lose the first leg at the 1.61 odds.
