Our football match prediction:
Thanks to Marko Livaja’s goal Las Palmas picked up one point from Sunday’s football game against Deportivo Alaves. Los Amarillos are getting back on course and the fact that they outclassed Athletic Bilbao in their last home fixture is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Leganes. Quique Setien is doing a great job with Las Palmas and his men are regarded as hot favourites to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s game against the newcomers. Leganes’ main goal is to secure the top flight survival, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to avoid relegation to Segunda Division. Asier Garitano’s men did well to hold Villarreal to a goalless draw at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the away game against Las Palmas. Los Amarillos are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that the hosts will record a routine win over the newly-promoted side.
Highligted Player (David Garcia):
David Garcia is a Spanish player who started his youth career at Maspalomas. After making 65 appearances for Vecindario in lower leagues, he joined Las Palmas in 2003. David Garcia is a centre back, but he is capable of playing as a right back if needed. He was born on 25 February, 1982 and it is more than obvious that he dedicated his football career to Las Palmas. Garcia made his professional debut in September, 2013 in a 2-1 victory at Elche. However, he made no more than seven league appearances for Las Palmas in the 2003/2004 season. David Garcia, though, quickly established himself as a first-team regular and it has to be noted that he played 394 league games for los Amarillos until the 2016/2017 season. He made 37 appearances for Las Palmas in the 2014/2015 Segunda Division campaign, helping the team secure promotion to the Spanish top flight, but he played no more than 19 games for the club in the 2015/2016 Primera Division campaign. His contract with Las Palmas expires on 30 June, 2017.
Highlighted Team (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success. Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby. The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
