Real Zaragoza vs Almeria Preview
The Segunda Division promotion battle is really bubbling up nicely and the result of this game will have a big impact on deciding the destinies of these two clubs and indeed the entire race. Zaragoza find themselves in 2nd place with a 5 point advantage on Almeria in 3rd. Therefore the visitors will feel that at the very minimum they need to take a draw from this game to stay in serious contention.
Victory for Zaragoza would be the clearest sign yet that they are on the cusp of finally ending their lengthy absence from the top flight. It’s a position they might not have expected to find themselves in only last weekend when they were surprisingly beaten 3-1 at home by Alcorcon. However to their credit they bounced back strongly with a win by the same margin at Lugo and with other results going their way, they’ve managed to restore their advantage on the chasing pack.
One of the results that went their way was Almeria’s home defeat against Las Palmas in midweek. This was already a hugely unpredictable league and the lack of home fans has just added to the mystery it would seem with a number of surprising away wins so far.
While Almeria have been away from the top flight for a while too, there is big pressure on Guti to deliver promotion this season following significant investment from the club’s Saudi owners last summer and this is the latest in a long line of pressure games for Almeria who were wobbling before the season came to a halt and have now lost 4 of their last 7 league games.
Real Zaragoza vs Almeria Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
It’s so tough to call these Segunda games and with so much at stake, the pressure will really be on both teams here. There’s not much to choose between the teams and both have genuine quality up front in the shape of Luis Suarez for Zaragoza and Darwin Núñez for Almeria. A draw looks a likely outcome here and almost 50% of Almeria’s away league games this term have ended that way.
