Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Mirandes, Espanyol will be aiming to return to winning ways in Segunda Division when they take on Logrones on Matchday 30. Los Periquitos are determined to return to the Spanish elite division, but they will have to beat their sharpest in the season finale if they are to turn the dream into reality. Raul De Tomas, who scored his 16th goal of the season in the draw with Mirandes, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team.
Since Espanyol have turned their RCDE Stadium into a real fortress, home win should definitely be considered. Logrones, on the other hand, have been struggling in the second half of the season, with the team dropping down the standings week by week. The newcomers took no more than one shot on target in the 1-0 loss to Malaga, and, taking everything into account, we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp in Barcelona.
Highlighted Player (Diego Lopez):
Diego Lopez is a Spanish goalkeeper who plays for Milan in the Serie A. Lopez was born in Paradela on 3 November, 1981 and he played for Lugo during his youth career. He made two appearances for Lugo at senior level as well, but in 2000 he joined Real Madrid.
The 196-cm-tall shoot-stopper played for both Real Madrid C and Real Madrid B and he made just two appearances for the first team during his first spell at Real Madrid. After spending five seasons at Villarreal (2007-2012) the Spanish goalkeeper played for Sevilla in the 2012/2013 La Liga campaign, but he made no more than eight league appearances for los Sevillanos.
He returned to Real Madrid on January, 2013 and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular, replacing Iker Casillas in the starting XI. However, Real Madrid fans wanted to see Iker between the posts and, as a result, Diego Lopez was forced to join Milan in 2014. Lopez has only one cap for Spain national team.
Highlighted Team (Logrones):
UD Logrones is a Spanish football team that participates in Spanish Segunda Division. Union Deportiva Logrones were founded in 2009 following the extinction of CD Logrones, with the team competing in Segunda B until the 2019/20 season.
In 2020 UD Logrones secured promotion to Segunda division as they were sitting in top position in the standings when the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The club is well known for their white shirts with red stripes, while blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Union Deportiva Logrones play their home games at Las Gaunas, the venue with the capacity of 16,000 spectators.
UD Logrones take on Sporting Gijon on their debut in the Spanish second tier. It has to be noted that the club chiefs made a three-year collaboration with La Liga side Eibar, which saw their footballers going on loan to Logrones to gain some experience.
