Zaragoza vs Numancia
Zaragoza host Numancia in the 2nd leg of the Spain La Liga2 promotion play-offs at La Romareda. The winner will face Valladovid or Gijon in the big final where the winner will be promoted to La Liga.
First match finished 1:1 and Zaragoza have higher percentage of the possession and equal amount of shots as the hosts. The draw was fair result, but Zaragoza did what they needed to do in the eliminations- scored an away goal and even didn't lose. That's not surprising when we know that Zaragoza won both of the matches during the season against Numancia- 3:0 at home and 2:1 as visitors. Hosts form before the play-offs was amazing being perfect at home. To be even clearer- they have only one result at home different from a WIN since January- a home loss 0:1 against the relegated and last in the table Sevilla Atletico which team was a punching bag in the league..you can imagine how serious Zaragoza played against them :D
Borja Iglesias- this will be the man to watch at La Romareda today. I expect him to score for sure, he's the leader of the team!
Numancia finished 6th in the table, but their form before the play-offs is nothing supreme. They snatched the 6th place in the last round with a home win 2:1 against Cultural Leonesa. In their away matches they have a strange mix of draws and losses- only 3 wins 9 draw and 9 losses which is really bad stat for a team part of the play-offs. That speaks a lot they are a typical home team relying on them for the three points. During 2018 they have only one away win and it's against Alcorcon..
Raul Guti is out for the hosts, but he's with long-term injury, while visitors will be without Luis Valcarce.
I am sorry I give this pick now, I was thinking to post it yesterday evening, but didn't like the odds, they were too low and I was sure they will increase today, but over 2.10 in Pinnacle.. that's temptating! Home win with a lot of money here :)
