Real Zaragoza vs Deportivo La Coruna Preview

Real Zaragoza vs Deportivo La Coruna

Competition – Copa del Rey

Stadium – Estadio La Romareda

Date: 12th September 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This is perhaps the biggest game in this round of Copa del Rey matches and these two former La Liga sides will be looking to go the distance in this competition this season.

Both sides have been playing with the big boys in the Spanish top flight before falling into the Segunda division.

Real Zaragoza are desperate to get back into the top flight, while Deportivo are also keen on gaining promotion at the first time of asking so they will both be looking to send a message to other teams in their division in this game.

Deportivo have collected 8 points from their first four games this season which is not a bad start for a team that seeks promotion.

Depor struggled before beating a 10-man Sporting Gijon thanks to an extra time goal in their last game and this game could be a tougher ask for them.

Zaragoza on their part, come into this game off the back of a thumping 4-0 win over Real Oviedo in their last game.

That result is one of the biggest margins you will see in the Spanish second division, so they should be coming into this game high on confidence.

Deportivo have only won on one of their last six trips to Zaragoza, and that sole win came the last time they met
