During the season we are not betting much on this tight and tough league, but with the end of the season approaching, we will get involved more. Motivation during this part of the season is of huge importance and home advantage becomes more and more important. For a team like Cordoba, staying in the league is of utmost importance: they played Primera Division three years ago so relegation to a tough league like Segunda B, from which it is tough to promote, would be a disaster.
And Cordoba are still a very solid team. Currently 18th they have 3 points advantage over relegation zone and they have won 2 out of the last 3 games played. These two wins meant a long losing streak came to the end and now confidence is getting higher. Cordoba won against Alcorcon and Zaragoza, teams comparable to Numancia.
On the other side, Numancia are having an average season. Currently 11th they are exactly in the middle of the table, 7 points adrift of promotion playoffs and 7 points above relegation zone. Of course the season is still pretty long, but the pressure is low and their results are average. Numancia were unable to score a single goal in the last 4 games played and lost last 3 (0-2, 0-3, 0-3). So, their confidence will be low.
I expect Cordoba to continue with their rescue, my call is 1-0 home win!
