Tip Reasoning

  • Las Palmas boast the best home record in the Segunda Division, winning 6 and drawing 2 of their 8 matches, and netting 17 times.
  • Although Real Zaragoza are unbeaten in 12 games, 9 of these have been draws. They have only won 3 matches this campaign.
  • The visitors have scored just 12 goals this season, the joint-worst attacking record in the league.

Draw Specialists Zaragoza Face Tough Island Trip

Having won a major European trophy as recently as 1995, Real Zaragoza are now into their 9th consecutive season in the wilderness of Spain’s second tier. Los Blanquillos are, somewhat bizarrely, sat in mid-table, despite their 12-game unbeaten run stretching back to late August. Zaragoza have drawn a remarkable 10 of their 15 matches thus far, and 9 of those last 12.

Playing their home games on Gran Canaria, over 1,500km away from mainland Spain, Las Palmas boast a fearsome home record, winning 6 and drawing 2 in front of their own fans this season. In fact, former West Brom manager Pepe Mel has his side sitting just one point away from an automatic promotion spot, despite them winning just once on their travels this campaign.

Miserly Zaragoza’s Run to End?

None of Zaragoza’s league games have featured more than 3 goals, and their defensive record of just 12 goals conceded is the second best in the division. However, 2 of their 3 wins to date came against teams currently mired in the bottom 5, and they are yet to face any of the division’s top 4.

Given the unique nature of a trip to Gran Canaria, as well as the firepower available to Las Palmas, Zaragoza’s long unbeaten run may well end here. The hosts can call upon the talents of former PSG and Stoke City attacker Jese Rodriguez, who has 6 goals and 5 assists to his name this season, while left-winger Pejino has himself netted 5 times in the league.

As they tend to do, I expect the stubborn visitors to make this a tight and competitive contest, but am predicting a low-scoring win for Las Palmas. A 1-0 home victory looks a reasonable prediction in the correct score stakes.
