Zaragoza can continue their resurgence with another home win in Spain's Segunda Division this evening, says Tobias Gourlay
"Zaragoza have turned their season around recently, winning five of their last six home league games"
Zaragoza v Mirandes
Monday 20:00 (Live on LaLiga SmartBank YouTube)
In the Netherlands last night, Ajax did their thing and thrashed Den Haag 5-0, but it was a clean kill. No cards in the match at all, which means Kev's bet died too. He's now got a week off to build back better, while we're looking to level up in Spain tonight.
Seventeeth-placed Zaragoza entertain ninth-placed Mirandes in the Segunda Division this evening and we fancy the lower-ranked hosts could nick a result.
Zaragoza have turned their season around recently, winning five of their last six home league games, including 4/5 under new boss Juan Martinez. Los Blanquillos have kept clean sheets in all five victories and look capable of shutting out today's goal-shy visitors.
Despite their position in the top half, Mirandes have scored nine times across their last 12 road trips. Jose Alberto's Reds are W4-D1-L7 in those matches, losing each of the most recent two. Last time out, they lost 0-4 at 19th-placed Alcorcon. We're not expecting anything quite so one-sided today, but we'll take Zaragoza at an odds-against price to find a way of nabbing all three points.
