Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Ferrol, Eibar will look to stay in the automatic promotion berth when they take on Zaragoza on Matchday 26. Los Armeros are eyeing their eighth home win of the process, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Defender Frederico Venancio is sidelined with a muscle injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Sporting Gijon. Zaragoza, though, produce much better showings at home on the travels, which is the main reason why we are going to put our money on the Basques. Raul Guti suffered a serious injury against los Rojiblancos, with Jaume Grau likely to replace him in the starting XI. In the first half of the season Eibar defeated Zaragoza 3-2 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
