Mirandes vs Real Zaragoza – Real Zaragoza overcame a shaky start to the new season after defeating Ponferradina and Sporting Gijon in consecutive matches in the previous two rounds.
Only two points had been earned by the team coached by Juan Carlos Carcedo through the first four games of the season. The team’s emotions have been raised by the aforementioned consecutive victories, and the greatest thing is that Zaragoza will have a great opportunity to maintain such excellent form on Saturday afternoon when they take on struggling Mirandes.
At the start of the season, the hosts don’t chop down any trees. In the first six rounds of the campaign, they only scored a few points. The lack of defensive rigour at the start of the season is a major problem for Joseba Etxeberria’s team.
They have already given up eleven goals in six games, which is excessive by the standards of this division. In three of his last four league games, Mirandes allowed at least two goals to be scored. Four of their past five competition games have ended in losses.
It’s also quite intriguing to observe that in this season of Segunda Division, only one of their players has succeeded in scoring a goal. All four of his team’s goals this season have been scored by Raul Garcia. On Saturday, Zaragoza will do half of the work if they can find a method to stop him.
