Real Zaragoza v RCD Espanyol - La Liga Smartbank
Zaragoza take on Alaves on Saturday.

Real Zaragoza will host Alaves at the Estadio de la Romareda on matchday 27 of the Segunda Division on Saturday (February 11).

Las Palmas leading the standings with 49 points – two points above second-placed Levante. The average gap between the league’s 22 teams is two points. It appears to be a tight race this term. The hosts are in 14th place with 33 points – one point behind Villarreal II and one above FC Andorra.

Los Manos have been plying their trade in the second tier since 2013-14, finishing tenth last season. They are eying the promotion playoffs, which is nine points away. Claiming maximum points against Alaves could move them closer, but they have been disappointing at home recently.

Alaves, meanwhile, are itching to return to La Liga, and their results are evident. They were relegated from the top flight last season after finishing at the bottom of the table – 20th out of 20. They're currently fourth in the standings, with 46 points – three behind Las Palmas – following 13 wins and seven draws in 26 games.

Babazorros have been flawless in their last three outings, prevailing over Eibar 2-0, Mirandes 3-1 and Racing Santander 3-0. They will seize top spot if they succeed at Estadio de la Romareda and if other results are favourable. However, Alaves have struggled against Zaragoza recently, claiming one win in their last five clashes.
