Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio El Toralin will host Sunday’s football match between Ponferradina and Zaragoza. Los Blanquillos made a very slow start to the season, with the team sitting in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 13. The atmosphere in Zaragoza’s dressing room is obviously poor, and, no doubt, the visitors are low on confidence ahead of the trip to the El Berzo region. To make things even worse for the visitors, talented defender Alejandro Frances misses the game through suspension.
La Ponfe, on the other hand, showed character in their last league fixture, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with Malaga at home. Ponferradina aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and given Zaragoza’s current form, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home team. Bolo’s men are eyeing their third home win of the season.
Highlighted Team (Zaragoza):
Based in the autonomous community of Aragon, Zaragoza is a Spanish football club that plays in Segunda Division. The club was founded on March 18, 1932 and it plays their home matches at the legendary La Romareda stadium.
The venue opened on September 8, 1957 has the capacity of 33,608 people. Los Blanquillos wear white shirts and blue shorts when playing on home soil, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit. Zaragoza did well to win the la liga trophy in the 1977/78 season, with the team finishing the campaign four points clear of second-place Recreativo de Huelva.
Speaking of the club’s European success, Zaragoza clinched the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1994/95 season as they defeated 2-1 in the title game. Fabio Coentrao, Pablo Aimar, Roberto Ayala, Diego Milito, Gabriel Milito, Cafu, and David Villa are the most notable footballers who played for the club in the past. Huesca are considered the club’s main rivals.
