Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Zaragoza and Levante take on each other at Estadio La Romareda in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program in La Liga 2. Los Blanquillos played out a goalless draw with Las Palmas in their opener, but it has to be noted that La Union Deportiva failed to turn their dominance into goals. Since head coach Juan Carlos Carcedo has no fresh injury worries, he is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with Las Palmas.
Los Levantinos managed to keep a clean sheet in their opener as well, with the team sharing the spoils with Huesca at home. Taking everything into account, a low-scoring affair is on the cards at La Romareda, and we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. Midfielder Marcelo Saracchi should miss out through injury for the visiting 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.
