Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Legendary La Romareda stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Zaragoza and Real Sociedad B. The start of the season has been a mixed bag for los Blanquillos, who head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Fuenlabrada. Zaragoza aim to escape the danger zone, and it seem as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in La Liga 2.
The Basques, on the other hand, suffered an expected dip in form, with the team losing to both Cartagena and Eibar in the previous two league fixtures. Considering that Zaragoza are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the newcomers will return home empty-handed. Keep in mind, though, that Zaragoza defender Francisco Gamez misses the match through suspension after he was sent off in the draw with Fuenlabrada.
Highlighted Player (James Igbekeme):
James Igbekeme is a Nigerian footballer who plays for Zaragoza in La Liga 2 as a winger. Igbekeme’s primary position is central midfield, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
The Nigeria international started his senior career at Portuguese club Ribeirao, and after scoring two goals in 43 appearances for Os Ribeirenses, he moved to fellow Portuguese outfit Gil Vicente. In 2018 he decided to move to Spain, signing a four-year deal with Zaragoza. The 170-cm tall footballer made his Zaragoza debut on August 19, 2018 in a 2-1 win over Rayo Majadahonda.
He scored his first goal for the club in a 4-0 win at Real Oviedo on September 8, 2018. Igbekeme’s preferred foot is left, and his contract with los Blanquillos should expire on June 30, 2023. The Zaragoza midfielder born in Lagos on July 4, 1995 has yet to receive a call-up for the Nigeria national football team.
