Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Las Palmas and Valencia square off against each other at Estadio de Gran Canaria in the closing match of Saturday’s program. La Union Deportiva are after their sixth home win of the process and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against los Che. The good news for the hosts is that Javier Munoz is back from suspension, but D.R. Congo midfielder Omenuke Mfulu is still on international duty.
Valencia, meanwhile, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Almeria, but given their ups and downs on the road, the share of spoils is on the cards in Gran Canaria. Barring any fresh injury worries, Ruben Baraja is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Almeria, but Guinea defender Mouctar Diakhaby could play some part after returning from the Africa Cup of Nations. Both Thierry Correia and Sergi Canos are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Team (Las Palmas):
Las Palmas are a Spanish football club based in the Canary Islands. The club was founded on 22 August, 1949. Los Amarillos play in Spanish La Liga and the team’s home ground is Estadio Gran Canaria. The stadium was opened in 2003 and it’s current capacity is 32,150. Miguel Angel Ramirez is the club’s chairman and the club’s main rivals are Tenerife.
Las Palmas impressed in the 2015/2016 La liga campaign, with the team finishing the season in 11th place in the standings. However, it has to be noted that los Amarillos finished the 1968/1969 Primera Division campaign in second place in the table, 11 points behind Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Speaking of Copa del Rey, Las Palmas made it to the final of the Spanish Cup in 1978. Las Palmas eliminated Sporting Gijon in the semis (5-3), but Barcelona outplayed los Amarillos in the title game (3-1).
