Our football match prediction:
Wednesday’s football game at Estadio Municipal de Butarque pits together Leganes and Real Madrid, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the second half of the season. Leganes aim to secure the La Liga survival, while Real Madrid are determined to regain the domestic trophy. Los Blancos failed to impress against Deportivo Alaves at the weekend, but they eventually recorded a 3-0 win over the newcomers. The capital club, though, need to keep on winning if they are to win the La Liga title and we predict that the visitors will go all guns blazing on their local rivals on Matchday 30. Leganes shared the spoils with Real Sociedad in their last league fixture, but they face an uphill task in Wednesday’s clash against Zinedine Zidane’s troops. Real Madrid are after their sixth consecutive win in all competitions and, taking everything into account, away win appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Martin Mantovani):
After spending his youth career at Banfield, Kimberley and Cadetes San Martin, Martin Mantovani signed for Atletico Madrid in 2006. The Argentine defender played seven games for Atletico Madrid B in the 2009/2010 season and he joined Cultural Leonesa at the end of the season. He made 32 appearances for Leonesa in the 2010/2011 season and in 2011 he moved to Atletico Baleares. Despite establishing himself as a starter at Atletico Baleares, he decided to join Oviedo in 2012. He played for los Azules in the 2012/2013 campaign and at the end of the season he was sent on loan to Leganes. After impressing with Leganes in the 2013/2014 campaign, the club chiefs decided to sign a permanent deal with the Argentine centre back. He played regularly for the club in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to Spanish elite division. Martin Mantovani was born on 11 August, 1984 in San Miguel. Mantovani’s contract with Leganes expires on 30 June, 2018.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid are a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 11 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world. Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards. The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
