Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Burgos and Mirandes go head to head at Estadio El Plantio in the La Liga 2 round 8. Burgos aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but the match against Mirandes will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Fit-again midfielder Ernesto Gomez is pushing for a start after coming as a substitute in a 2-0 loss to Ibiza.
Mirandes, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to both Alcorcon and Leganes, while beating Tenerife. Since los Rojillos have been producing fine displays on the road of late, we believe that they are going to pick up one point from Sunday’s clash. Mirandes winger Roger Brugue should keep his place in the starting XI after opening his goal-scoring account in the defeat to Leganes.
Highlighted Player (Carlos Julio):
Carlos Julio Martinez is a La Masia product who plays for Mirandes in Segunda Division as a right back. Martinez started his youth career at the Barca football academy, but in 2013 he moved to Club Esportiu Europa. At the start of his senior career, the Dominican footballer played for both Villarreal B and Villarreal C before joining Marbella.
After scoring two goals in 63 appearances in the league for los Blanquillos, Carlos Julio Martinez moved to Mirandes in the summer of 2018. Speaking of his international career, Martinez made his debut with the Dominican Republic national team on December 8, 2012 in a 2-1 win over Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean Cup.
His primary position is right-back, but he can be used as a right midfielder as well. Carlos Julio Martinez was born in Santo Domingo de Guzman, Dominican Republic, and he has a dual citizenship.
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).
