Las Palmas vs Real Zaragoza prediction
Great form in LaLiga 2 the players of Las Palmas failed to transform to Copa del Rey competition, losing out away from home against CD Badajoz with a 2:1 result.
The result does come up a bit surprising, but the home side simply used their chances better while the visitors rotated the squad a bit and that didn't pay off to them regarding the lack of creative ball movement overall.
As for the LaLiga 2, the side comes from an undefeated run of six matches, counting four straight victories and two consecutive draw matches.
Most recently it was a goalless game away to Fuenlabrada in a match where they definitely have deserved more. The guests had more of the ball possession and better chances created, controlling the game overall however more effective approach was needed to change the scoreline.
The side is now inside the playoff zone and needs a three-pointer to establish themselves further at the top of the table.
Right full back Lemos (12/0) is out injured, same as winger Drole (6/0) and striker Castro (5/3).
Zaragoza did well to prevail away to Gimnastic with a 1:3 result last Saturday. Experience difference within the two teams was obvious, as the visitors taken the double lead with two own goals in the first halftime and generally had control over the result during the clash.
As for LaLiga 2, they come from a 2:0 home victory over Sporting Gijon, coming now from their third victory in the last four rounds.
The team currently stands at the third position with only three points less than direct promotion placed Almeria and needs to seek something in this one.
The guests are set to miss defensive midfielder Zapater who didn't perform so far, as well as striker Dwamena (9/2).
Both teams come into this match being in quite a positive momentum and surely won't give up on the promotion race that easily.
Las Palmas can't be too proud regarding their home performances during the season, but effectivity is there. The similar can be said for Zaragoza on the road, meanwhile, I expect a highly competitive match from both teams. Both to score maybe even more than once should the valuable choice here.
