Real Zaragoza vs Cordoba
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Friday, 26 January 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio de la Romareda (Zaragoza).
Cordoba picked up a super important three-pointer last weekend when they saw off Albacete 1-0 at home to get seven points below the safe zone. The Caliphs still have a mountain to climb in order to even think of saving the second tier status come May and they don’t have much to be optimistic about ahead of this Friday’s travel to Estadio de la Romareda and the clash with Real Zaragoza.
We say this mainly because of Cordoba’s horrendous form on travels in this term o Segunda Division. The Caliphs have lost 10 and drawn one of last 11 away matches mainly because of the lack of meticulousness at the back when they play away from Estadio Nuevo Arcangel. The visitors have shipped nine goals during the four-loss streak on the road.
This will be the music to the ears of Borja Iglesias who leads Zaragoza’s goalscorers list with nine goals so far in the season. The Spanish forward has been phenomenal last year when he bagged 34 goals for Celta Vigo II and he looks determined to prove the quality and potentially make the Primera Division move in the summer.
Iglesias notched both of team’s goals in a 3-2 defeat to Real Valladolid in mid-December and he only played once since. The striker skipped the last Friday’s loss at Granada due to suspension and he is expected to be back in the squad for Cordoba’s visit.
Real Zaragoza vs Cordoba: Head-to-head
Zaragoza only lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of their 12th meeting with the Caliphs.
Each of last three H2H encounters saw both teams on target.
Los Manos came on top when the two sides met last September when Borja Iglesias scored a brace.
Real Zaragoza vs Cordoba: Prediction
Zaragoza’s form has seen some stumbling blocks throughout the season, but they just need to be favourites against a team that has lost ten of last 11 games on the road.
The value can also be found in backing Los Manos to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.00.
