Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Malaga and Zaragoza, the two old rivals, face each other at Estadio La Rosaleda in the Segunda Division round 24. Los Boquerones desperately needed a win at Alcorcon, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their six-game winless run in La Liga 2. Experienced attacker Pablo Chavarria, who scored a late winner on Matchday 23, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Albacete, with the team beating Ponferradina in their last league match. Zaragoza, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Malaga, who regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend. In the first half of the season Malaga defeated Zaragoza 2-1 at Estadio La Romareda.
