Zaragoza vs Numancia
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Tuesday, 4 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Romareda (Zaragoza).
Numancia and Real Zaragoza battled it out in the promotional play-offs semi-final last season, but are nowhere near such achievement this time around. Both sides had subpar campaigns in this term of Segunda Division and will finish the season in the bottom half of the standings regardless of what happens in last two rounds.
Both outfits can even be happy to have saved their second-division statuses (the visitors are yet to do so actually). The hosts won four of last six league matches to go eight points clear off the danger area. Los Manos were pretty efficient in the final third in recent weeks. They notched seven goals in back-to-back wins over Extremadura and Sporting Gijon, but fell 3-1 away at Malaga last weekend.
Zaragoza vs Numancia: Head-to-head
Numancia made an upset going past Los Manos 3-2 on aggregate in the aforementioned promotional play-offs semi-final last year.
Rojillos were then stopped by Real Valladolid in the final.
Numancia also came on top when these two likes met each other in the first part of this season (1-0 at Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos).
Real Zaragoza were much more successful in the history of matches at Estadio de la Rosaleda where they won 6, drew 2 and lost 2 against Rojillos.
Zaragoza vs Numancia: Prediction
Numancia sit three points short of Los Manos in the league ladder. They are five points above Rayo Majadahonda in the red zone, but could theoretically secure survival if Rayo lose their away fixture against 8th-placed Real Oviedo.
Rojillos were very tough to break down lately as they shipped only one goal in last four rounds. They won two of last three in Segunda Division. However, we must note that Numancia have a devastating away record with joust 1 win in 20 league games on the road this season.
Given Zaragoza won four of last six matches in the competition, we fancy the home win as the main betting option at 2.00 odds. Numancia bagged just one goal in past five away outings and we will alternatively back Los Manos to keep a clean sheet at 2.62.
