Our football match prediction:
Thanks to Alex Berenguer’s late goal Osasuna recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Deportivo Alaves at Estadio de Mendizorroza. Los Rojillos put an end to their 21-game winless run in the league and, no doubt, the triumph gave them a confidence boost. Osasuna have slim chances of avoiding relegation to Segunda Division, but their pride will be at stake in Sunday’s football game against Leganes. Despite the fact that Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane rested his key players in the local derby, Leganes failed to upset the league leaders and, as a result, they remained in the danger zone in the La Liga standings. Sunday’s clash against the rock-bottom-team is of big importance for the visitors and seeing that the hosts head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, we predict that Asier Garitano’s troops will return to winning ways in the Spanish top flight.
Highligted Player (Mario Fernandez):
Mario Fernandez is a Spanish goalkeeper who plays for Osasuna. He started his youth career in his home-town club Racing Santander and he continued playing for the club at the start of his senior career. Mario Fernandez played 48 games for Racing Santander B between 2006 and 2009 and on 6 January 2010 he made his debut for the first team. Racing Santander defeated Alcorcon 3-2 in Copa del Rey back then and he played in the return leg as well (0-0). On 4 August, 2015 Fernandez joined Osasuna, but he failed to establish himself as a first-choice goalkeeper for the El Sadar outfit in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign. Mario Fernandez has three caps for Spain U19, but he has yet to make his debut for the first team. Fernandez is a 184-cm-tall goalkeeper and he wears number 1 on his shirt. His contract with Osasuna expires on 30 June, 2017. Fernandez was born on 30 April, 1988.
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.
