Numancia vs Las Palmas by Sunshine
Even with some certain defensive weaknesses, Numancia still managed to make a decent start in the new season as they have a victory and two draws, coming from a 2:2 draw away from home against Girona last weekend. They entered the match a bit more strongly and deservedly took a lead in 44th minute with a goal from Poquet.
However, home side replied much better in the second half and have equalized in 63rd minute, while they were also able to get a 2:1 lead in76th minute. Things to be much more fair, Numancia managed to equalize three minutes before the full time whistle with a goal from Enrich while the team actually was better overall and deserved a bit more than only one point. Their only home match saw them winning 4:2 against Jaen, fact that will make their morale boosted in front of the second home match in the season. They have no new problems reported, as they will only miss out already long term injured right back Isidoro (1/0), midfielders Pedraza and striker Martin, as both of them didn't have a chance to participate this season following their injuries.
Las Palmas, on the other hand, still has no victory in the new season, having currently only two points out of first three rounds. They were beaten 0:1 against Deportivo La Coruna at home in the season opener, while last two matches saw them getting a point against Alaves and Eibar.
Their last match saw them getting a bore 1:1 draw at home against Eibar, as they only upped the tempo at the end of the match when the home side had to play with a man less from 80th minute, while they got so much wanted goal in the last minutes of the game. They signed offensive midfielder Masoud Shojaei from Osasuna few days ago, in order to improve the offensive lineup, player that could be already included into squad. On the other side, long term injured is right back Angel Lopez, same as midfielder Hernan, while central defender David Garcia (3/0) is suspended for tonight's game. Finally, striker Spas Delev is on international duty.
Numancia counts six consecutive victories at home against Las Palmas and today should be no different. They have entered the season much better and should be favorites here, but due to their instability in the defensive lineup, over goals seems like a more sure bet in this match.
