Zaragoza hosts Fuenlabrada in round 31 of Spanish LaLiga 2. The match will be played on Friday, March 11th at La Romareda (Zaragoza)
Zaragoza was once a tough average performer in Primera and often made noise in the cup. The Whites took part in eleven Copa del Rey finals and won over half of them. But relegation followed soon after the last triumph. At first, it seemed like the Zaragozans wouldn’t stay in Segunda for a long time, and they did quite often take part in the playoffs for the right to return to La Liga. Then the situation worsened, and for example, last season brought only 15th place. Now Zaragoza is also among the middle peasants. It seems that the club has stepped up in the second half of February and gained several victories (a 2-0 win over Almeria became the third success in a row). But this only gave the Whites the opportunity to calmly play out the championship.

Fuenlabrada is one of the many modest clubs that don’t set the Thames on fire both in Spain in general and in Madrid in particular. But having gained promotion to the Segunda in 2019, the team managed not only to stay there but also demonstrated the statistics of a tough middle peasant and finished in the middle of the standings. Now Fuenlabrada cannot boast of such results. The club scores less than one point per match and wins very rarely. It seems that the general statistics are not hopeless. But the trouble is that even the 18th team of the division shows much better results, and there is less and less time to make up for this gap. A 1-2 defeat to Burgos last weekend was the 2nd in a row. And Fuenlabrada didn’t gain a single victory in the last six rounds.
The clubs held five head-to-head matches in total. And Fuenlabrada won only the first game. Then Zaragoza gained two victories and two draws. Of course, Fuenla is more motivated now, as the hosts will certainly finish somewhere in the middle of the standings again. But the Zaragozans have gained momentum, so we will bet on their victory.
