Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sunday’s football game at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo pits together Alcorcon and Leganes, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. Alcorcon’s main goal is to secure the Segunda Division survival, while Leganes are eyeing a place in the playoffs. Los Alfareros are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Spanish second tier, but they will have a mountain to climb against the capital club.
A man to watch in the home team will be Daniel Ojeda, who scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Lugo. Leganes, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Ponferradina. The promotion-chasing visitors are eager to return to winning ways, but beating the in-form relegation strugglers on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, a close match is on the cards at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo.
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 (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.
