League: Spanish Segunda Division
Real Zaragoza – Sporting Gijon
Pick: Real Zaragoza to Win
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
Zaragoza in fine form
Zaragoza are trying to stave off any threat of the drop in the Segunda, but their recent form has lifted them away from the bottom four. The hosts have lost once in their last six to move up the table.
Meanwhile, Sporting have seen their playoff hopes hit after a three-game losing streak. They’ve lost seven of their 17 away games this season, so we think they’re vulnerable here.
Zaragoza have won seven of their last nine home games, while they’ve got a fantastic home record. They’ve kept a clean sheet in 59% of their home games, so we expect the hosts to keep this tight and capitalise on the visitors’ poor away record.
We’re backing a home win, with a 1-0 victory our correct score prediction – a scoreline which has landed in six of Zaragoza’s eight home wins.
