Las Palmas vs Numancia by Jamesington
With two key players - Murillo and Bifouma - out (both have started over 33 games this season) Las Palmas will not be at full strength and will be coming up against a stubborn Numancia side who have, despite not winning much, only lost 1 of their past 6 matches and only 3 of their past 9 away games.
Sitting one point behind Ponferradina it is more important that Las Palmas do not lose this game than they win it so if Numancia come out playing cagy football, happy with a draw, the game is likely to head that way.
Las Palmas have drawn 3 of their last 7 matches - all finishing 0-0 - and of their past 8 home encounters, half have finished in ties (with 3 of 4 ending goalless). Numancia are also fond of a draw with 4 of their past 6 ending in a draw (2 games ended 1-1) and of their last 9 away matches an incredible SIX have finished as draws (on 2 occasions 0-0, 4 times it was 1-1).
For me the bet here is the draw with correct score punts on 0-0 and 1-1 as potential bonuses. If you need any more persuading then take this - the same fixture over the past two seasons has finished 1-1 once and 0-0 the other time.
