Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sporting de Gijon play host to UD Logrones at Estadio El Molinon in the opening match of the season. Los Rojiblancos have been having their ups and downs in pre-season, but their display in a 1-1 draw with La Liga side Celta is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. New boss David Gallego is on a quest to help Sporting Gijon bring glory days back to “Molinon”, but it has to be noted that the club chiefs were anything but active in the summer transfer window.
UD Logrones, on the other hand, secured promotion to La Liga 2 by beating Castellon on penalties in the Segunda B playoffs final. The newcomers aim to prove their worth in the Spanish second tier as well, but they face a difficult task in the opening match of the season. Summer signings Alex Perez and Andoni Lopez are likely to make their UD Logrones debut against Sporting.
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.
