Linares Deportivo Preview
Linares Deportivo did their job in the previous round of the Copa del Rey and eliminated Union Adarve with a score of 1-2. The game was decided in regulation time, with the miners’ goals coming in the first half, and with this victory they recorded three consecutive wins in all competitions.
However, it is noteworthy that this was their last win, as they are currently on a six-game winless streak in the league, with three defeats and three draws. Their last match was last Sunday and ended in a 1-1 draw against CD Badajoz.
Probable lineup (4-5-1): Samuel Casado, Javi Duarte, José Antonio Caro, Emmanuel González, Alfonso Candelas, Aitor Gelardo, Francisco Callejón, Ignacio Abeledo, Fermin Marin, Fran García, Hugo Díaz.
Racing de Santander Preview
Perhaps at the moment Racing Santander have more important matters to attend to considering they are close to slipping into the red zone in LaLiga 2 as one of the worst five teams.
They are trying to recover, and at least their last game was a 0-3 victory after suffering a negative streak of five consecutive defeats. To stay alive in this competition, they need to win again in this match and could come into this game motivated after their previous victory as they continue to look for a resurgence in this final stretch of 2022.
Probable lineup (4-5-1): Miquel Parera Piza; Dani Fernández, Germán Sánchez, Rubén González, Saúl García; Iñigo Sainz-Maza, Artiz Aldasoro, Iñigo Vicente, Jorge Pombo, Jordi Mboula; Matheus Aiás.
The current moment of the two teams does not make them reliable, therefore, there is no clear favorite to win and advance to the next round. Racing de Santander is coming off a win, and that makes them slightly better than their opponents at the moment.
Prediction: Racing Santander win by 1-0.
