Football Prediction of the Day Real Zaragoza vs Real Madrid
It is clear that Real Madrid CF is indicated by the paper and not just the favorite of this match.
However, the Cup is not called the KO competition in vain, because the lower ranked teams also have their chance.
The first clear objective of Zaragoza is to return to Primera, which has been missing for 7 years.
An eventual qualification further into the cup would be a bonus, not to mention what injection with confidence would receive after a possible elimination of the big Real.
A chance for her would be that just a few days after this match, the Madrilenians have a very difficult match with the fellow Atlético, which is why it is possible that Zidane may not line up La Romareda the best 11.
However the lot of Real means value and then when discussing players who are not in the foreground.
However, a elimination in front of a split second would not be good for Real from any point of view, which makes us anticipate that it will not allow this to happen.
