Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following a 1-0 loss to Burgos, Tenerife will look to get back on course when they host Zaragoza to their Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez on Saturday evening. Los Insulares failed to find the net in the previous two league fixtures, but the bookies still see them as favourites to beat los Blanquillos. Tenerife are eyeing their 9th home win of the season, but they will have to do it without suspended forward Enric Gallego.
Zaragoza, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table with 43 points in their pocket. Since los Blanquillos have little to play for in the season finale, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home side. The likes of Narvaez, Petrovic, Lasure, Serrano, Grau, and Vigaray have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away team.
Highlighted Player (Alvaro Gimenez):
Alvaro Gimenez is a product of Elche football school who plays for fellow La Liga side Cadiz as a forward. Alvaro played for several Spanish clubs in the past, including Elche, Valencia B, Torrellano, Mallorca, Alcorcon, Almeria, before joining Birmingham City in the 2019/20 season.
After scoring only three goals in 24 appearances for the Blues in the Championship, Alvaro Gimenez returned to Spain at the end of the season, signing a deal with La Liga newcomers Cadiz. The Spanish attacker made his debut with the “Yellow Submarine” on October 4, 2020 in a 1-1 draw with Granada. His main position is centre-forward, but he is used as both left and right winger as well.
Gimenez’s preferred foot is left, and his contract with Cadiz should expire on June 30, 2023. The Cadiz attacker has three caps with the Spain U17 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
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.
