The numbers tell their own story, and Real Zaragoza have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals in all. At the back, Real Zaragoza have some weaknesses to address. Such a trend isn’t assured to be continued into this next game, though.

Team News: Fuenlabrada
Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Fuenlabrada manager José Oltra to contend with from an otherwise complete group. Jano (Rupture of Outer Meniscus) misses out.
Team News: Real Zaragoza
From a largely healthy group, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Real Zaragoza gaffer Juan Ignacio Martínez to be concerned with. Daniel Lasure (Testicular Cancer) won’t be in action.
We’re of the opinion that Real Zaragoza could well find it tough to find the net against this Fuenlabrada side who we think might well emerge victorious.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive game with a 1-0 victory for Fuenlabrada at the end of the 90.
We’ll see what happens.
