Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Municipal de Montilivi when Girona and Almeria face each other in the La Liga 2 round 28. The Catalan outfit aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash. Fit-again Uruguay attacker Stuani, who found the net in the 1-1 draw with Fuenlabrada, will be the man to watch in the home team.
The Andalusians, on the other hand, will once again rely on former Partizan Belgrade striker Umar Sadiq, who has netted 13 goals in Segunda Division so far this term. Since Almeria looked sharp in front of goal in the 4-1 victory over Lugo, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. Jose Corpas, who scored a brace at the weekend, is widely expected to return to Almeria’s starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Antonio Luna):
Antonio Luna is a product of Sevilla football academy. The pacey left back was born in Son Servera, Spain on March 17, 1991 and he made his senior debut with Sevilla B. Antonio Luna made 32 appearances in the league for the reserve team, while playing 21 games for los Sevillanos in the Spanish top flight.
After ending his loan spell with Mallorca in 2013, Luna moved to England and signed a three-year deal with Aston Villa. It has to be noted that the Spanish footballer found the net for the Villans on his Premier League debut in a 3-1 win over Arsenal. After making 17 appearances in the English elite division for the Villa Park outfit, he returned to Spain in 2015, signing a deal with Eibar.
Antonio Luna scored one goal in 41 appearances for los Armeros before joining fellow La liga side Levante in 2017. You should know that Luna has five caps for Spain U20 team.
Highlighted Team (Almeria):
UD Almeria is a Spanish club based in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Los Rojiblancos are one of the newer additions to the Spanish football system, with the club being founded on July 26, 1989.
Almeria suffered relegation to Segunda Division in the 2014/15 season, and they have been competing in the Spanish second tier ever since. Los Rojiblancos are well known for their white shirts with red stripes, while blue is the dominant colour of their away jersey. Sofiane Feghouli, Felipe Melo, Diego Alves, Veljko Paunovic, Aleix Vidal, Alvaro Negredo, Tomer Hemed, and Mate Bilic are some notable footballers who played for Almeria in the past. Fellow Andalusian clubs Sevilla, Malaga, and Granada are considered the club’s fiercest rivals.
The club’s biggest success in Copa del Rey came in the 2010/11 season when they made it to the semis of the prestigious competition. Nonetheless, Catalan giants Barcelona proved to be a big catch for Almeria in the Spanish Cup semi-finals.
