Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo will host Saturday’s football match between Alcorcon and Las Palmas, the two mid-table sides. Alcorcon have been totally unpredictable in the 2020/21 season, but their recent displays are surely giving fans a reason for satisfaction. Los Alfareros recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures, and they are surely capable of matching la Union Deportiva at home ground.
Since Carlos Belvis and Jose Carlos have been struggling with injuries, fellow midfielder Guito is pushing for a start. Las Palmas, on the other hand, impressed in a 2-0 win over Ponferradina, but seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened hosts. Midfielder Maikel, who found the net in the triumph over La Ponfe, is likely to miss Saturday’s game through injury.
Highlighted Player (Richard Boateng):
Born in Accra, Ghana on July 10, 1992, Richard Boateng is a midfielder who plays for Alcorcon in Segunda Division. Boateng is a product of Liberty Babies football academy, with the Ghanaian starting his senior career at Liberty Professionals. In 2010 he moved to Spain, signing a deal with Granada.
During his spell with the Andalusian outfit, he mainly played for Granada B, but he spent a couple of years at loan at Cadiz B and San Roque as well. Richard Boateng made only one appearance for the Granada senior team in the league.
The Ghana international played for the likes of Aris Limassol, Extremadura, Melilla, and Oviedo as well before joining Alcorcon in 2019. His primary position is central midfielder, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Alcorcon should expire in June 2021.
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).
