All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for CD Mirandés v Real Zaragoza are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
CD Mirandés won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-1 La Liga 2 losing effort in their last game against Granada.

It’s not been often in recent games where CD Mirandés have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, CD Mirandés have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 11 goals in the process. Such a trend won’t necessarily follow through into this next game, however.

Team News: CD Mirandés
The CD Mirandés boss Joseba Etxeberria has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all before this clash with a completely healthy squad available to select from.
We are thinking that Rojillos will possibly kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation this time with Alfonso Herrero, Raúl Parra, Raul Navas, Nikolaos Michelis, José Salinas, Beñat Prados, Oriol Rey, Juanlu Sánchez, Roberto López, Nico Serrano and Raul García De Haro.
Team News: Real Zaragoza
In an otherwise available squad, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the Real Zaragoza gaffer Juan Carlos Carcedo to contend with. Carlos Vigaray (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here.
It’s our belief that Blanquillos seem likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation using Cristian Alvarez, Fran Gámez, Lluis Lopez, Jair Amador, Gabriel Fuentes, Jaume Grau, Manu Molina, Sergio Bermejo, Valentin Vada, Víctor Mollejo and Giuliano Simeone.
Our assessment here is that CD Mirandés will really need to work well to find the net against this Real Zaragoza lineup who we think should score one, at least.
We’re therefore seeing a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Real Zaragoza at full-time.
We’ll see what happens.
