This match has finished. To watch current games go to the sections Today's Football Predictions, Football Betting Prediction for Tomorrow or Football Predictions for the Weekend.

Real Zaragoza look to put their dreadful recent form behind them on Monday, entertaining SD Ponferradina in the final game of this season's LaLiga 2 campaign. They're mathematically assured of a top-six finish, regardless of this result, but results elsewhere in the division could help them in their postseason push.

Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Real Zaragoza vs SD Ponferradina Betting Tips

I described Zaragoza's post-pandemic form as dreadful and the statistics really speak for themselves. They could have easily finished as league champions, yet instead must battle further for a La Liga berth next season.

In their ten games since resuming action on June 13, they've lost seven and drawn one. Conceding four goals in three of their last four matches is far from comforting, especially against two relegation-threatened sides.

18th-placed Albacete climbed out of the bottom four places with an emphatic 4-1 win over them on Friday evening. Perhaps the manner of that defeat trumps their previous losses.

Nonetheless, there's no time for Victor Fernandez's men to dwell on yet another worrying result. They must react positively after a forgettable week and host a Ponferradina side who were enduring a six-game winless streak.

That came to a halt this weekend too, courtesy of a surprising 2-1 home win over third-placed Almería – ending their automatic promotion hopes.

Anyone can beat anyone in this division, especially when sides have something to fight for at both ends of the table.

Ponferradina will be relying on the goalscoring abilities of their top marksman Yuri (18 goals, three assists). The 37-year-old Brazilian scored only his second goal from open play since February on Friday, so this will be interesting.

Real Zaragoza vs SD Ponferradina Correct Score Predictions

Zaragoza's top-six place is assured, though they may conceivably finish third should Almeria and Girona drop points in their respective games. That presents an easier semi-final play-off tie – at least on paper – while boosting their promotion chances too. For that reason, I'm going for a narrow Zaragoza win here.
