Numancia – Real Madrid : Preview & Prediction
This Thursday the cast of Real Madrid hopes to recover from a tough defeat by 0-3 in the Spanish derby against Barcelona, when they visit the New Stadium Los Pajaritos to face a motivated Numancia in the corresponding game for the Octaves of Final of the Copa del Rey .
Those directed by Jagoba Arrasate are going through an excellent time, so not only come to win three of their last four games but five games that do not know of losses taking into account all the competitions and thus are fifth in the classification of the Second Division of soccer of Spain.
The best for the reds is that the front is onfire as they come to score in their last five games scoring a total of ten goals in that amount of games and against Real Madrid wants to continue on that path in particular Manu del Moral and Guillermo Fernández the team’s scorers.
Those led by Zinadine Zidane can not afford such a failure, the meringues come to be crowned champions of the FIFA Club World Cup and the defeat against Barcelona left them out of the fight for the league title.
Real Madrid has a tough battle against PSG for the Champions League in February and it is best to arrive with all the motivation to the top and what better than to be alive in the Copa del Rey.
It has been almost nine years since these teams met and it was for the League where Real Madrid won 0-2 and with that increased the positive streak in direct matches to five consecutive victories.
In general, these teams have played eight times, with six Real victories for one of Numancia, that before the 0-2 victory was not easy for Real since they won 4-3 and 1-2.
No one doubts that Real Madrid is the favorite to stay not only with the victory but also with this series but as is the custom in Zidane for this game will make some variants in the stellar eleven to get well to the game against Celta and ensure league classification of Champions of Europe and Numancia at home will want to take advantage of it and we trust that they will not make it so easy, so we trust that they will be present with a goal in this game, as it has been in two of the last three games .
