Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Sevilla play host to Las Palmas at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in what is expected to be an entertaining La Liga game. Los Sevillanos have yet to find their best form in the 2023/2024 season, but Sunday’s encounter could be the turning point for the home team. All Joan Jordan, Jesus Navas, Marcos Acuna, and Alfonso Perez remain in the recovery room, while Erik Lamela should be recalled to the starting XI.
La Union Deportiva, on the other hand, have been struggling up front in the new La Liga campaign and seeing that they have netted only one goal in the process to date, home win should be considered. You should know that Sevilla are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over Las Palmas in all competitions. The visitors will be without Daley Sinkgraven, Marvin Park, and Fabio Gonzalez in Sunday’s clash, while Alberto Moleiro should recover in time to face the Andalusians.
Highlighted Player (Marko Dmitrovic):
A Red Star Belgrade youth prospect, Serbian goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic never got a chance to shine at his boyhood club. The talented shot-stopper was forced to take a longer road to prominence and travelled through Hungary, England and Spain to find his place under the sun. Spells with Ujpest, Charlton Athletic and Alcoron brought nothing but disappointment for the Serbia ‘keeper, who rose to full prominence at Eibar.
Dmitrovic was voted the best player of Eibar for the 2017/18 season after not missing a single league appearance for Los Armeros. Apart from his footballing exploits, Marko Dmitrovic remains remembered for saving Angel Rodriguez Diaz’s life in a game against Getafe.
Dmitrovic was the one to unintentionally knock Angel to the ground after a duel in the box and was also the first one to pull his tongue out when it became apparent that Angel was lying still on the ground. Marko Dmitrovic is Serbia’s second choice goalkeeper who made his debut in 2017. The Eibar custodian was part of Serbia’s World Cup expedition in Russia but did not get a chance in goal with Vladimir Stojkovic being favoured between the sticks.
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).
