Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Zaragoza and Eibar face each other at Estadio La Romareda in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Monday’s program. Zaragoza did well to beat Mensajero in the Copa del Rey in midweek, and they are now on a quest to return to winning ways in La Liga2. Los Blanquillos are four points behind the playoffs berth, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Eibar.
Los Armeros, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-2 win over Girona. Eibar are determined to secure automatic promotion to La Liga, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be summer signing Stoichkov, who has been scoring goals for fun this term.
