Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Zaragoza and Sporting Gijon face each other at Estadio La Romareda in the closing match of Monday’s program. Los Blanquillos are undefeated in the previous seven league matches and they are surely capable of matching los Rojiblancos in front of home fans. Marc Aguado is banned for the match due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while both Sinan Bakis and Carlos Nieto remain in the recovery room.
Sporting Gijon, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Ferrol. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. All Axel Bamba, Pablo Insua, and Giovanni Zarfino are out of contention with injuries. It has to be noted that the two sides played out a 2-2 draw in the first half 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.
