Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Burgos play host to Las Palmas at their Estadio El Plantio in the closing match of La Liga 2 round 26. Burgos aim to regain their spot in top six, but they face an uphill task in Monday’s clash with the league leaders. Since defender Grego Sierra misses out through suspension, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts, who have been slipping down the standings week by week.
La Union Deportiva, on the other hand, aim to extend their winning run to four matches, and seeing that Burgos do not seem to be at the top of their game, away win should be considered. With no fresh injury worries to report, boss Francisco Pimienta is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Huesca. New signing Loren Moron is widely expected to make his Las Palmas debut against los Burgaleses.
Highlighted Player (Enzo Loiodice):
Enzo Loiodice, who was born in Paris, France on the 27th of November, 2000, started playing football at the age of eight with SC Paris. His journey as a youth player continued at FC Gobelins before completing at Dijon, where he is now a first-team player on a contract that ends in 2012.
On the 28th of April, 2018, Loidice made his professional debut, featuring in Dijon's 3-1 away loss to Bordeaux in League one. The 19-year-old midfielder, who is known for his ball retention ability and vision, represents his country at the youth level.
He made his under-20 team debut in an international friendly against Argentina U20 on the 20th of March, 2019, and has so far capped six times for his country at that level. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a defensive midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
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).
