Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
There will be fireworks when Girona and Leganes take on each other at Estadio Muncipal de Monilivi in the La Liga 2 round 24. The Catalans aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Mallorca, with the team eyeing their sixth home win of the season. Fit-again Uruguay veteran Stuani has been struggling to find his goal-scoring touch of late, but he should keep his place up front, alongside Saiz. Boss Francisco Rodriguez should stick to the 4-4-2 formation.
Leganes, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Lugo. The capital club are determined to keep their automatic promotion hopes alive, but beating Girona on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards in Catalonia, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last three meetings in all competitions.
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 (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success.
Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby.
The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
