Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Monday’s football game at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo pits together Alcorcon and Mirandes, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the remainder of the season. Alcorcon are determined to secure the Segunda Division survival, while Mirandes are eyeing a place in the playoffs. Los Alfareros aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Tenerife, with the team eyeing their sixth home win of the process.
Mirandes, on the other hand, proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Malaga, with the team keeping their playoffs hopes alive. Given Alcorcon’s shaky defence, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from Monday’s showdown. Despite failing to find the net at the weekend, Cristo is widely expected to lead the line for the visiting team. In their last meeting at the venue Mirandes defeated Alcorcon 2-1.
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 (Mirandes):
Mirandes is a Spanish club founded on May 3, 1927. Los Rojillos compete in Segunda division, with the team still eyeing their first ever promotion to La Liga. Mirandes’ home colours are red and black, while their away kit is mainly light blue.
Mirandes did remarkably well to make it to the Copa del Rey semis in the 2019/20 season, with the team outplaying the likes of Celta, Villarreal, and Sevilla in the process. Real Sociedad, though, proved to be a big catch for Mirandes in the Spanish Cup semis. Los Rojillos welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The stadium was opened back in 1950, with the venue being able to host 5,759 spectators.
Mirandes played their first game on June 4, 1927, with the team defeating Arabarra thanks to Fidel Angulo’s goal. Zaragoza and Alaves are considered one of the club’s main rivals. Los Rojillos have won Castilla and Leon Cup on two occasions (2011, 2012).
