Spain – LaLiga2
Date: Sunday, 9th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos (Soria).
Both teams have been finding it difficult to score goals in the last few weeks. Numancia, as well as Las Palmas, comes into this tie after taking part in goalless draws the previous match-day.
The hosts for this tie, Numancia, took on Zaragoza, on the road, only to return dejected with a solitary point. Despite the lack of goals, the game was pretty intense, especially in the second half with four yellow cards.
Opponents Las Palmas has ensured a comfortable mid-table finish this season but will be aiming for higher, the next time around. The team will have to concentrate on their defense if they are to challenge the top tier the next season.
In their last tie, the team took on Almeria, at home. A lack of better finishing led the squad to post just a point on the board.

Numancia vs Las Palmas Prediction
It’s a season-ender. Both teams are at the climax of a tiring campaign, which saw them extend their stay in the Segunda for another season. While it may be tempting for the squads to go after a win, players might fail to get behind the objective with full intensity.
Moreover, both teams have been misfiring in the last few games. The last match-day for both ended in goalless draws. Numancia failed to find the back of the net in three of their last four fixtures, while Las Palmas drew blanks in both of their last ties.
Numancia might have conceded two or more goals in the last four h2h ties, but only one of them was at this venue. At home, the team has been quite dominating against this opponent in previous encounters. But do note that majority of these matches came years back.
While the poor away form of Las Palmas might bother their fans, they can find solace in the fact that their team was better than the hosts for this tie, and had registered a win in the reverse fixture.
A dull draw, probably a goalless one, seems to be the most likely outcome for this match.
