Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Jose Zorilla when Real Valladolid and Zaragoza face each other in the La Liga 2 round 2. La Pucela are on a quest to secure a quick return to Primera Division, and their display in a 1-1 draw with Las Palmas is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Real Valladolid are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
Marcos Andre, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend, is likely to keep his place up front, alongside Shon Weissman. The club chiefs are trying to sign Fabio Orellana before the transfer window closes, but they have yet to complete the move. Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Ibiza in the opening match of the season. Since Zaragoza are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on La Pucela.
Highlighted Player (Óscar Plano):
A Madrid-born attacking midfielder, Oscar Plano was given a unique opportunity not many footballers get at the beginning of their fledgling careers. As a talented youngster making his first football steps with a local side of Mostoles, Oscar Plano was soon grabbed by mighty Real Madrid.
Having spent eight years going through youth setups of the La Liga heavyweights, Plano was given his competitive debut at Real Madrid C in 2010. A season later earned him a promotion to Real Madrid’s B setup where in three seasons in total he made 63 league appearances and scored 7 goals. Having become fully aware that a chance to represent one of the biggest clubs in the world might be unachievable, Oscar Plano moved to Alcoron in 2014.
More than a 100 matches in three years at Santo Domingo made him one of the key players for Los Alfareros. The Spanish midfielder made a great contribution with helping Valladolid secure promotion to Spanish top flight in 2017/18 with 44 La Liga 2 appearances and 6 goals.
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.
